Houston Headquarters

In 2002, Kizer Energy expanded operations by establishing a Houston office with the objective to diversify the Venezuelan portfolio of services and best practices to markets outside of Venezuela.

Company History

Dedicated to Supporting Operating Companies

A team of professionals with extensive experience in oil & gas industry projects founded Grupo KC in Caracas, Venezuela in 1999. The company started providing operational readiness and commissioning services to international oil companies (OIC) operating in Venezuela, and rapidly grew by addressing key customer needs that arose during the start-up of Orinoco Heavy Oil Belt upstream and downstream facilities.

From 1999 to 2002, Grupo KC continued to develop its capabilities and grew to provide complete commissioning, start-up and operations services in the Venezuelan market.

In 2002, Grupo KC changed its name to Kizer Energy and expanded operations by establishing a Houston office with the objective to diversify the portfolio of services and best practices to markets outside of Venezuela.

Growth in Venezuela, Canada and the US

In 2004, Kizer Energy opened an office in Puerto La Cruz, Venezuela and founded the Energy Training Center, a joint venture between Kizer Energy and the Wood Group. The Energy Training Center (ETC) facility's state-of-the-art technology is designed to deliver oil & gas training solutions to the South American market.

From 2002 to 2006, Kizer Energy continued to improve profitability in the Venezuelan market by doubling revenues every year and reaching over 200 employees by the end of 2006.

In 2007, Kizer Energy made a major investment to pursue opportunities outside Venezuela and relocated its corporate headquarters to the heart of the Houston Energy Corridor. Additionally in 2007, Kizer Energy Canada opened an office in Calgary, Alberta to provide consulting services to the Oil Sands Heavy Oil Projects.

In 2008, Kizer Energy further expanded its international presence by pursuing new markets and expanding its portfolio of services. Kizer Energy is currently active in Spain, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and Nigeria.

Strategies for Continued Growth

Markets

Kizer Energy continues to invest in growth strategies to expand our capability to existing and new markets. Kizer Energy is expanding its presence in Latin America with existing projects in Peru and current pursuits in Colombia and Ecuador. The company will start its marketing effort in the Middle East by capitalizing on project growth requests from the Middle East. Finally, the company has entered discussions to pursue several opportunities in Africa, including opening an office in Nigeria with a Nigerian partner in the last quarter of 2009.

Technology

Kizer Energy is currently implementing an ISO 9000 certification project and we expect to have our certification finalized by the end of 2009. This certification process has benefited the company greatly by assuring that our technology and processes are standardized and systematically applied, and quality control is managed accordingly.

Kizer Energy is in the process of migration of our operational and financial systems to an ERP platform starting in 2010. We have also developed customized computer training and maintenance management systems for several clients.

Resources

This is key to Kizer Energy's history and critical to our future success. Further investments are underway in our online recruitment system and strengthening our international HR capabilities. Our core team of technology experts is working with our HR department to develop a mentoring program for college students and recent graduates to build our resource base for future projects.
