FRACTURING - EQUIPMENT
Trican has designed a large fleet of fracturing equipment that is fit-for-purpose
for the regions in which it operates. The equipment utilizes the latest in
electronics and motor and pump technology to ensure that it is reliable and
effective in placing treatments as designed.
The combination unit is ideally suited for multiple stage fracturing where
one fracturing crew performs several fractures in a single day. Compared to
conventional fracturing setups, the combo unit provides significant savings
through increased efficiency of equipment utilization and all related completion
services. The unit leaves a small environmental footprint and no fluid waste.
Trican’s data vans make it possible for engineers to monitor a job as
it is being pumped, in real-time. With satellite, cellular and fax communications
systems, mini-frac analysis, a gel testing lab and real-time frac modelling
software, all job data can be analyzed on location or transmitted either to
Trican’s office or our customer’s office as the job occurs via
a satellite link. The van utilizes an integrated control system that links
all equipment on site.
Blenders are used for mixing or blending powders, chemicals and liquids to
create the required treating fluid on-the-fly.
Trican’s low profile frac pumper design was the first of its type in
the world. These units utilize the most modern motors, transmissions, electronics,
quintiplex and triplex pumps to ensure that reliability and job flexibility
are never compromised. The units are easy to maintain, and are much more efficient
than previously designed frac pumpers.
Chemical units are used for on-the-fly additive control and designed to meet
treating fluid requirements.
Trican’s Hydration Units ensure gel fluid consistency in accordance with
residence time, optimizing fluid performance.
PROPPANT STORAGE & TRANSPORT
Trican offers sand storage bins in two different sizes to help accommodate
the variety of customer needs regarding job size and location size.
