Trican Well Service Ltd. Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid

Trican Well Service Ltd. Announces Normal Course Issuer Bid 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/10/14 -- Trican Well Service
Ltd. (TSX:TCW) ("Trican" or the "Company") is pleased to announce
that the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") has accepted its
application to make a normal course issuer bid (the "Bid") to
purchase, from March 13, 2014 to March 12, 2015, certain of its
outstanding common shares (the "Common Shares"). All purchases will
be made through the facilities of the TSX. 
The Bid has been put in place because the Company believes that the
Common Shares are a good investment for the Company in the context of
equity market conditions, and to offset the dilutive effects of the
exercise from time to time of stock options granted by Trican under
its stock option plan. All Common Shares purchased through the Bid
will be returned to treasury for cancellation. 
As at February 28, 2014, there were 148,918,046 Common Shares issued
and outstanding. The number of Common Shares which may be purchased
during the period of the Bid will not exceed 10,426,156 Common
Shares, which is approximately 10% of the public float for the Common
Shares. Except as permitted under the TSX rules, the Company will not
purchase on any given trading day under the Bid more than 129,450
Common Shares, being 25% of the average daily trading volume of the
Common Shares on the TSX for the previous six calendar months of
517,800 Common Shares. No Common Shares were purchased pursuant to
Trican's most recent normal course issuer bid, which expired on March
7, 2014. 
Trican has engaged TD Securities Inc. as its broker for the purpose
of effecting purchases under the Bid. All purchases under the Bid
will be at the discretion of Trican, subject to the rules of the TSX. 
Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Trican has operations in Canada,
the United States, Russia, Kazakhstan, Australia, Algeria, Norway,
Colombia and Saudi Arabia. Trican provides a comprehensive array of
specialized products, equipment and services that are used during the
exploration and development of oil and gas reserves.
