23 Mat Sales and Mat Rentals
24 Mat Strategy n Further develop the worldwide market for the DuraBase composite mat system. Expand sales in those key countries and markets. n Expand rental market beyond the historic Gulf Coast oilfield rental business. n Develop selected foreign rental opportunities, including Mexico in 2004.
25 Sale of wooden rental mats in Canada Mats and Integrated Services Revenue (millions) % of Revenue is from Non-Gulf Coast Markets
26 Mat Rentals and Sales Revenue North America - RentalsComposite Mat Sales All amounts in millions
27 Mat Rentals and Sales Revenue Rental Volume (million square feet) Rental Pricing (dollars per square feet) +34% Gulf Coast Market
28 Mats and Integrated Services Operating Income Key Factors in Improved Earnings Outlook: nIncreased pricing due to contraction of industry capacity nIncreased composite mat sales
29 How are Mats Used? n Temporary access roads and worksites n All-weather access to drilling sites n Improves productivity n Extend the drilling or working season n Meet environmental protection regulations n Protect equipment and supplies on job site
30 Dura-Base® Composite Mats n Proprietary interlocking temporary work site or road surface n 8 by 14 high density polyethylene (HDPE) sections n Internal honeycomb structure - nominal weight 1,050 pounds n Anti-static properties throughout materials n Lock securely together with quarter-turn fasteners n Useful life over 20 years
31 Dura-Base® Mat Sales History 2000 through 2003 n Nine Major Markets n Units Sold35,236 n Average Price$1,500 (million) n Revenue $52.7 n Margin 27.0 n SG&A Expense 7.0 n Contribution$20.0
32 Dura-Base® Mat Sales History Lessons Learned n Dura-Base® is the premier mat system in the world. n The manufacturing plants pressure molding capabilities are unique. n Some markets will only support rentals, not sales. n New rental market opportunities include Mexico, the U.S. utilities, and Canada. n The Dura-Base® mat is overbuilt and over-priced in most applications. n The long-term life of the Dura-Base® mat is at odds with the short-term planning horizons used in the oilfield industry.

34 Mat Sales New Product: Bravo Lightweight Mats n Easily portable n Weighs 50 to 60 pounds n Installs without mechanical assistance n Designed for personnel, pedestrian and equipment traffic
35 Non-Oilfield Applications Logistics access to concert site in Tennessee 2003 U. S. Open Golf Tournament, site access for truck traffic Electric utility construction project access Street bypass for construction, University of Illinois
36 Mexico n Increases rig productivity in marsh and soft soils n Accelerates multi-year gas development project n A rental market Peru and South America n Minimizes disturbance to rain forest environment n Long-term site for multi-well drilling and production project International Markets Western Canada n Increases productivity in muskeg and tundra conditions n Extends drilling season
37 International Markets Sakhalin Island/Russia Project n Logistics access where no infrastructure exists n Multi-year field development project Indonesia n Safe, all weather work sites in jungle and soft soil conditions n Multi-year projects planned
38 Non-Oilfield Applications Nationwide Permit Expedited Through Matting Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (1972, 1975 & 1977) gave the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers jurisdiction over all navigable waters of the U.S., including wetlands. Current changes to the interpretation of these legislative acts have involved additional federal, state and local agency intervention in the wetland permitting process, often resulting in costly project delays. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has determined that with the use of composite matting boards for roads and pads, the issuance of the Nationwide Permit 6 authorization is appropriate...

39 E&P Waste Management
40 E&P Waste Strategy n Focus on the premium E&P waste market where customers require quality, safety and certainty of environmental performance. n Growth in the market will be driven by new regulations, deeper, more complex wells, and demand for premium services. n Integrate with drilling fluids business where possible. n Let competitors defend the commodity end of the market.
41 E&P Waste - Key Market Factors n New regulations n Increasing depth of drilling n Environmentally sensitive areas opening n All solutions are local solutions
42 Waste Management in North America Wyoming Composting Freeze/Thaw Western Canada Composting Eastern Canada Composting Underground Injection West Texas Recycling for Reuse & Underground Injection Gulf Coast
43 Gulf Coast Injection Wells n Key differentiation from other providers n Low pressure methodology n High environmental safety n High capacity n Low cost n A permanent solution to customers waste problem

48 +15% E&P Waste Segment Revenue Revenue (millions) Approximately 30% of segment revenue is derived from markets outside of the Gulf Coast. Operating Income 50% Operating Leverage
49 E&P Waste Margins Gulf Coast EBIT margins have recently improved due to operating leverage and reduction of fixed costs. EBIT Margin
50 Waste Disposal - New Markets n Expansion in Jonah-Pinedale Trend n Saltwater Disposal Facility n Integrates With Fluids Business n Oilfield: All forms of water markets are the next opportunity n Industrial NORM Permitting Underway n New Market Should Develop Over Several Years
51 n Mat Sales è Further develop worldwide Dura-Base® sale market. è Bravo Mats broaden the product line. n Mat Rentals è Improving Gulf Coast rental pricing è Increasing domestic non-oilfield revenue. è Pursue selected foreign rental markets (Mexico). n Drilling Fluids è Contracts and preferred vendor status should sustain 25% growth. n E&P Waste è Oilfield water is the next growth opportunity. è More complex and deeper drilling projects lead volume growth. è Industrial NORM driven by litigation Objectives
