The oilfield services segment provides both onshore and offshore water treatment filtration, pipeline separation, waste fluid treatment, rental tools, coil tubing and well testing data services for the oil and gas industry. The transportation segment includes both a long-haul trucking business and a freight brokerage business for the company's domestic subsidiaries as well as third parties.
