The Company was founded in 2005. In 2010, management strategically focused the Company's efforts on establishing a best-in-class hydraulic fracturing platform targeting the Permian Basin. Our fleet has been designed to handle the highest-intensity, most complex hydraulic fracturing jobs, and is largely standardized across units to facilitate efficient maintenance and repair and reduce equipment downtime, like the Southwest Airlines standardized fleet model.
Through a handful of acquisitions and a robust newbuild program during the rapid growth period in the oilfield of 2010 through 2018, the Company built a fleet of over 600,000 hydraulic horsepower. Then in 2019, the Company negotiated a strategic transaction in which ProPetro acquired the pumping services assets of Pioneer Natural Resources along with a 10-year service contract to provide hydraulic fracturing services. This timely transaction resulted in total pumping horsepower of nearly 1.5 million hydraulic horsepower.

Our customers benefit through increased productivity and reduced non-productive time during their completions projects. This not only drives our customer satisfaction but also enhances our efficient cost structure.
Equipment Innovation and Lowering Our Emissions
In 2019, we announced our investment in electric powered frac fleet technology with DuraStim’s innovative pump technology and electric hydraulic systems. In early 2021, we continued our commitment to lower emissions technology by announcing an investment in Tier IV Dynamic Gas Blending (DGB) dual gas equipment and conversions. These combined actions are examples of our commitment to lowering our emissions and delivering innovative solutions to our customers.
We continue to evaluate the most productive and innovative equipment technology and processes to drive our Customer Focused Team Driven operating philosophy. In turn, this management environment inspires our workforce to perform at the highest level. ProPetro is recognized as one of the best places to work in the Permian Basin region because we are a dynamic workplace where excellence is pursued every day.
