Trican began operations in 1979 providing cementing services from a base in Lloydminster, Alberta. Late 1996 saw the arrival of a new management team and, with it, a new direction for Trican: new services and new markets. The Company was taken public in December of 1996 to enable Trican to realize its vision of growth. Two key strategies were implemented at that time: to expand the complement of services available by adding more technical, higher margin services, and open new operational bases to find new markets for these services. These strategies have proven to be very successful for Trican.
Since that time, the Company has grown to encompass multiple operational bases in Canada, offering a range of services to oil and gas customers operating virtually anywhere in the Canadian Western Sedimentary Basin. Trican has also expanded its capacity internationally with operations in the United States, Russia, Kazakhstan, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Colombia, and Australia.
Trican’s success internationally is based on its business model in Canada: providing high quality, innovative solutions to help our customers develop their resources more efficiently and effectively, using state-of-the-art technology and equipment, deployed by highly trained and reliable personnel.
The Company’s growth can also be attributed to the expansion of its service lines and its ongoing commitment to Research and Development. Trican is recognized industry-wide for the technical quality of its products, its ability to innovate and design solutions for specific customer problems.* It has also been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Financial Contributors to R&D for 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, and 2013.
Whether providing Coiled Tubing Services in western Siberia, Light Weight Cementing in Algeria, or Microseismic Fracture Mapping in Hinton, Alberta, it’s by finding the solutions that address our customers’ needs and providing the highest quality service offered anywhere that Trican is becoming a leading pressure pumping supplier worldwide
