Acheson, Alta.-based Frac Shack Inc. says it has entered the Argentina oil and gas market through a 51 percent owned subsidiary.
The company sells a patented frac fuel delivery system that it says is designed to significantly reduce the dangers of hot fuelling during continuous fracs by removing workers from the hot zone.
It rigged-in its first “shack” in Argentina on February 14.
“We have created a design of our unit that can be inserted into a sea-can and shipped anywhere in the world,“ Frac Shack CEO Todd Van Vliet said in a statement.
The shack is providing automated re-fuelling services to pressure pumpers on pads north of Añelo, Argentina in the Vaca Muerta shale play.
Frac Shack completed work on the first pad on March 21st while a second shack was shipped from Canada the week of March 11th, the company said.
“Argentina’s energy industry expansion and development in the Vaca Muerta is a great stepping stone for Frac Shack into the global market,” Van Vliet said.
