"Enteq has delivered sequential growth for each equivalent period over the last three years,” Perry said.

“The investment in building partnerships, bringing engineering projects closer to market and developing a broader international customer base are beginning to show the anticipated returns,” Perry said.

“Recent advances in China and a new technology agreement with Shell demonstrate the potential of our business."

The company noted that in the United States it continues to benefit from the ongoing success of the equipment rental program, despite some reduction in the rig count over recent months.

In international markets, it described further gains in China where it now expects to generate around 30% of group revenue for the first half. It is boosted by a recent order to use Enteq's kit in a shale gas development project the South West region of the country, with the contract worth around US$500,000.

The recently announced development project with Shell, meanwhile, will further enhance Enteq's product range, thus leading to a significantly increased market potential.

Elsewhere, the company noted that ongoing technology partnerships are now delivering commercial returns and are contributing to sales opportunities.

It today has some US$10.7mln of cash and the company said it continues to invest in engineering projects and its equipment fleet. Financial results for the first half of 2019 are due to be released on 14 November.
