Pumping Services


Nitrogen (N2) is an inert (non-reactive) gas that is pumped into a wellbore to improve the safe recovery of introduced and produced fluid, while reducing the potential of formation damage. As a result of being an inert gas and the most abundant component in the Earth's atmosphere (78%), N2 is intrinsically safe, easily accessible and in widespread use in the oilfield.

Gaseous N2 is most commonly used in the oilfield to displace or lighten fluids. This feature allows oil or gas to more easily flow from the well. Nitrogen is also pumped into many surface facilities and pipelines to purge air from the piping prior to welding and cutting. Trican’s nitrogen units are used by themselves and in conjunction with our other service lines.
