Lucens Capital Acquires Summum Energy

30 June 2021

Lucens Capital acquired Summum Energy, an oilfield services company in Colombia, for an undisclosed amount and entered into definitive agreements to execute a business combination of Summum Energy with ProdEng Chile.

(Press Release) Lucens Capital is excited to announce that it has closed the acquisition of Summum Energy S.A.S. (“Summum Energy”) and has entered into definitive agreements to execute a business combination of Summum Energy with ProdEng Chile S.P.A. (“ProdEng Chile,” and jointly with Summum Energy, the “Companies”).
Lucens Capital is proud to partner in this transaction with ProdEng Chile’s founders, who bring more than 60 years of
combined experience in the oilfield services (“OFS”) and E&P segments.

We are convinced that the Summum Energy acquisition and subsequent combination with ProdEng Chile represent a
very attractive entry point and scalable platform for the roll-out of a value-added OFS champion in the Andean region.
Lucens Capital’s investment will allow the Companies to acquire additional equipment and technology to enhance
their value-added service offerings. Moreover, Lucens Capital will implement several organizational and financial
initiatives already proven in our prior investments (both in OFS and the specialty chemicals space), which we expect to
generate efficiencies and increase the Companies’ commercial reach.
