Section 1 – Conflict Minerals Disclosure


Item 1.01 Conflict Minerals Disclosure and Report

Conflict Minerals Disclosure

This is the Conflict Minerals Report of Superior Energy Services, Inc. (including its subsidiaries, the “Company”) for calendar year 2017 in accordance with Rule 13p-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Please refer to Rule 13p-1, Form SD and SEC Release No. 34-67716 for definitions to the terms used in this Report, unless otherwise defined herein.

The Company provides a wide variety of services and products to the energy industry related to the exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas. Accordingly, the Company undertook due diligence on the source and chain of custody of conflict minerals used in manufacturing its products in 2017. For those limited products which were identified as containing conflict minerals, the Company then performed a Reasonable Country of Origin Inquiry (“RCOI”) reasonably designed to determine whether such conflict minerals originated in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or an adjoining country.

In conducting its RCOI, the Company contacted those 12 suppliers who were identified in its initial supply chain risk assessment to establish the origin of the conflict minerals supplied to the Company. The Company was able to gather and review responses from 11 of its suppliers.

The Company conducted due diligence on the source and chain of custody of such conflict minerals, and has prepared the Conflict Minerals Report filed as Exhibit 1.01 to this Form SD. Based on the Company’s due diligence to date, the Company does not have sufficient information to determine the country of origin for the conflict minerals contained in certain of its well completion tools, or to confirm whether such conflict minerals were from recycled or scrap sources.


Item 1.02 Exhibit

The Company’s Conflict Minerals Report for the calendar year ended December 31, 2017, is filed as Exhibit 1.01 hereto and is publicly available on the Company’s website, “”
