Iron Horse executed its first job in 2005 and, subsequently, has provided coiled tubing fracturing treatments across a wide range of wells for E&P companies with industry leading recycle ratios, including shallow gas to horizontal oil throughout Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. In our 12 year history, we have coiled tubing fracture stimulated more than ~50,000 stages in ~3,500 wells at rates up to 10m³/minute.
Iron Horse takes pride in having the most experienced fracturing and coiled tubing crews in the industry, and our staff are driven to improve and refine systems and processes. Additionally, our new fleet of compact equipment generates a smaller footprint and reduces manpower requirements relative to our competition, thereby lowering non-productive time.
Currently, Iron Horse operates the industry’s newest fleet of fracturing equipment, including six coiled tubing fracturing crews, and downhole tools. Additionally, Iron Horse provides 24 hour operations to customers.
Iron Horse provides:
- Experienced crews – our field staff averages approximately eight years of coiled tubing fracturing experience, and 100% of our staff are employees.
- 24 hour operations.
- Newest equipment fleet – our compact lightweight equipment has the ability to travel on most road systems without special permits.
- Six sets of coiled tubing fracturing and support equipment, including the largest diameter coiled tubing units in Canada (3.25”).
- ~40,000 fracturing HP.
- Leading edge fluid systems – cost effective fluid systems designed and supported by experienced technical personnel and state of the art laboratory facilities.
- Downhole tools – we offer a full suite of proprietary downhole tools, and our engineering and technical staff are constantly focused on developing innovative and refining existing downhole tools to improve efficiency levels.
At Iron Horse, safety is not a program – it is engrained in our DNA. More importantly, we are committed to continuously improving our health and safety performance by ensuring minimal employee turnover and maintaining our compact equipment footprint to the highest standard, thereby ensuring efficient operations. Iron Horse’s commitment to the health and safety of our environment is second to none and, therefore, exceeds our customers’ needs, public expectations, regulatory requirements, and recognized industry standards.
