Calfrac’s principal business is the provision of hydraulic fracturing services
The completion of unconventional reservoirs, including unconventional oil and gas shales, siltstones, mudstones and other traditionally bypassed reservoirs is technically and operationally challenging and characterized by increasing numbers of horizontal wells, multi-stage fracture treatments and elevated pumping pressure demands.
Since its start-up in 1999, Calfrac has established itself as a key energy services provider and has a reputation for high quality, safe operations and flawless execution. The team has experience working in a variety of geographic environments ranging from the arctic tundra to mountainous and foothills regions to semi-desert and dry tropical regions. Job sites have ranged from remote locations, accessible by ice roads only, to rural areas where regulations pertaining to road restrictions and noise are in place. Given these situations, Calfrac has developed well-defined journey management and logistics practices.
With an expanded geographic network and an operating fleet sized correctly to service the markets where it operates, Calfrac's goal is to safely and efficiently provide the highest degree of expertise, innovation and service to its customers.
At Calfrac, our customers and their unique requirements are one of the primary drivers for our business. Our success is based on achieving high levels of customer satisfaction and building long-term, mutually beneficial relationships.
Our experienced field operations teams are supported by highly qualified technical, supervisory and support personnel. In collaboration with our customers, we develop an understanding of the specific project requirements, and then tailor innovative and practical solutions to meet those needs. Over the years, we have developed strong relationships with a diverse mix of multi-national public companies, national oil and gas companies, as well as small private companies. We count among our customer base many of the most active exploration and production companies in the countries where we operate.
