Why Propane Is Vital To Oil & Gas

Propane is ideal for oil and gas operations because it is stable and reliable and can be stored indefinitely at remote and rugged locations. In addition, it functions well in extreme weather, a significant feature for oil sites in the remote regions of Northern Alberta and Saskatchewan. At CanGas, we understand the benefits that propane can bring to the oil and gas industry, and we believe in building strong partnerships to allow us to bring those benefits to you. We take care of our clients, offering automated delivery, local supply, and attentive care.

Well-Site Production

Utilizing propane can up the green factor of your well-site as well as improve the overall efficiency of your well-site production. Propane is useful in powering drilling rigs, well testing equipment, and, in some cases, waterless fracking processes. Propane generators can power electric motors or equipment that has been converted to run on propane.

Water Heating

Propane-powered water heaters are used in the kitchens and homes of workers residences as well as in essential well-site operations. Propane-powered water heaters are efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally responsible.

Building Heat

At any given time, there could be thousands of workers living at an oil and gas camp, and propane is just as essential for them as it is for the on-site operations. Propane furnaces, boilers, and heaters provide heat to residencies as well as other on-site buildings.
