“Pat has a long and distinguished history in the oilfield services sector, and we are excited to have him lead the Nuverra team,” said Mr. Thompson. “As a 30-year industry veteran, Pat brings not only tremendous operational expertise, but also a deep commercial focus that will be critically important to the Company as the industry emerges from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the oil price collapse in 2020.
