About Ideal

Ideal is a private oilfield services company formed in January of 2017 to complete the acquisition of Cathedral Energy Services flowback and production testing assets. Ideal is backed by Edge Natural Resources LLC (“Edge”), a Dallas-based private equity firm focused on small-cap investments in the North American energy industry. Ideal also has access to additional capital to expand its flowback business through acquisition and/or build-out of new equipment.

With the current North American asset base and our considerable management and operational experience, Ideal is strategically well positioned to expand and grow its business as an industry leader of flowback and production testing services with a strong emphasis on safety and customer service.
Ideal’s management team has extensive experience in the flowback and production testing business through their prior management experience with Pure Energy Services and Cathedral Energy Services. The management team includes Brad Gabel (Executive Chairman), Rutger Niers (President), Richard Defreitas (Vice-President) and Scott Marshall (Vice-President, Operations). Rutger Niers, President of Ideal, said, “We are excited to acquire the high quality flowback asset base of Cathedral and look forward to welcoming the Cathedral staff to the Ideal team. We will be solely focused on the flowback and production testing business.

With the Cathedral asset base and our considerable management and operational experience, Ideal is strategically well positioned to expand and grow its business to become an industry leader of flowback and production testing services in North America with a strong emphasis on safety and customer service.”
