CALGARY, AB --(Marketwired - June 25, 2014) -  Aveda Transportation and Energy
Services Inc. ("Aveda" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:
AVE), a leading provider of oilfield hauling services and equipment rentals to
the energy industry, today announces that, it has closed the increase to its
asset based lending facility at $125.0 million (as previously announced on June
12, 2014). The Company also plans to expand its operational footprint by
opening a new branch in Oklahoma. 
The Company also announces that it has reached an agreement with a new customer
operating in the Mississippian Basin in Oklahoma and Kansas to provide a
minimum threshold of monthly rig moves for a one year period in the region. The
minimum rig moving thresholds in this region will give Aveda a solid starting
position from which to grow. Accordingly, Aveda is planning on opening a new
branch in Oklahoma in the third quarter of 2014. A portion of the assets to be
acquired pursuant to the acquisition of Precision Drilling Corporation's
US rig moving assets (as previously announced on June 16, 2014) are expected to
be allocated to this new location. The Company estimates there are
approximately 260 drilling rigs operating in the planned Oklahoma branch's
service region which will include Northern Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas. This
branch is anticipated to generate between $12.0 and $18.0 million in revenue in
"This is another customer led opportunity for Aveda to expand its
operational footprint," said Kevin Roycraft, President and CEO of Aveda.
"Our growth in Texas was directly as a result of customers demanding us to
expand into new markets. The opening of our Oklahoma branch demonstrates the
continued faith our customers have in our ability to deliver operational
excellence and perform high quality rig moves."
