Our History

CETCO Energy Services delivers custom solutions to the oil and gas industry’s challenges. We began in 1997 as CETCO Offshore, a division of Colloid Environmental Technologies Company, a division of AMCOL International. That same year, our fluid treatment technology was introduced in the Gulf of Mexico for treatment of fluids from acid stimulation flow backs and well completions.

In 2003, CETCO Offshore became a separately incorporated entity of AMCOL International and took the name CETCO Oilfield Services Company. Since it’s inception, the company has grown significantly, both through internal growth and acquisitions. The addition of services has grown out of the needs of our customers, and spurred by our company’s desire to link complementary technologies and processes.

With this growth, a rebranding initiative became essential for our customers to better understand our offerings. Therefore, in 2013 we developed into CETCO Energy Services. With a worldwide presence in 14 locations, we employ more than 300 people in 10 countries.


Today, CETCO Energy Services, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Minerals Technologies Inc. (NYSE: MTX) A New York-based resource- and technology-based growth company that develops, produces and markets worldwide a broad range of specialty mineral, mineral-based and synthetic mineral products and related systems and services.
