Three Companies Form Imperative Chemical Partners in Midland, Texas

WadeCo Specialties, Impact Chemical Technologies and FloCap Injection Services formed Imperative Chemical Partners headquartered in Midland, Texas.

Imperative is largely focused in the Permian Basin, part of the Mid-Continent Oil Field, located in western Texas and southeastern New Mexico. The firm operates additional locations in the Eagle Ford, Mid-Continent, Barnett, Bakken and Haynesville Shales.

According to company officials, Imperative is a leading provider of specialty chemicals, chemical program management and in-field technical support primarily to operators and midstream companies in the most active shale plays in the United States. With over thirty service locations across Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Illinois and North Dakota, Imperative has the capability to service major integrated production companies and transportation infrastructures, yet maintains the flexibility and responsiveness to service independent operators.

"We are extremely proud of what we've built here," said Randy McMullen, CEO of Imperative. "This new partnership brings together the strengths of these highly complementary companies, allowing us to offer our customers the best products, laboratory capabilities, regional coverage and technical expertise in the industry. Our customers are seeing immediate benefits from the combined platform. It's an honor to work with such a talented management team, many of whom are the founders of the original companies. Without them, Imperative would not be the success it is today," said McMullen.

"Hastings Equity Partners has been an investor in Imperative for the past five years and has developed a domain expertise in oilfield chemicals over its more than 15-year history investing," said Ted Patton, Founder of Hastings. "Imperative was founded to fill a white space in the market that Hastings identified early on. Until Imperative, the market lacked an independent production and pipeline chemical platform of scale that had the products, infrastructure and laboratory capabilities to serve both large and small customers while maintaining the service quality and customer-first approach of a small independent company."
