Headquartered in Houston, Axip’s international business operations were in Mexico, South America, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

The acquired assets included a 448 unit compression fleet totaling 285,000 hp (212 MW) with utilization above 90% and an average age of 5.5 years. Other assets include gas treatment facilities in Mexico, Argentina and Peru.
