C.A.T. oil AG is one of the leading independent oil and gas field service
contractors in Russia and Kazakhstan and is listed on the Frankfurt Stock
Exchange (SDAX). C.A.T. oil provides a range of high quality services, which
enable oil and gas producers to extend lifecycle of their fields or bring yet
unexploited oil and gas reserves to production.
Since its foundation in 1991 in Celle, Germany, C.A.T. oil has built up a
leading hydraulic fracturing service, a very effective method of well
stimulation by cracking rock formations with pressurized fluids, in Russia and

drilling vertical, inclined and horizontal wells for extraction of oil and gas.

and diversification since its IPO in 2006.
Following the successful set up of high class drilling in 2011-12, C.A.T. oil
introduced its new segment reporting in 2013 clustering its activities in "Well
Services" (fracturing, cementing and completion operations) and "Drilling,
Sidetracking and IPM (Integrated Project Management)".
