“The combination of Superior and Complete creates a top-tier diversified oilfield services company with the products, technologies and talented people that are critical to helping our customers create value, particularly in unconventional fields in North America,” Superior President and Chief Executive David Dunlap said.

The combined company will keep the Superior name and Dunlap will lead the firm. The new board will add two independent members from Complete.

Boards for both companies unanimously approved the deal, however, it still needs approval from Superior and Complete shareholders. The acquisition may close as soon as the end of the year.
