Ecoquip manufactures, rents and services the Ecoquip 9000 series hydraulic pump jacks. This patented technology is manufactured in Calgary, Alberta. The Ecoquip hydraulic pump jack has serviced wells across Saskatchewan, Alberta and North Eastern British Columbia.
We incorporated Ecoquip hydraulic jacks as part of our exploration and production evaluation process. Our first hydraulic pump jack installation went smoothly and quickly; Ecoquip helped us get the jack up and running on site. We finished running rods in the morning; setup the pump jack and started pumping in the afternoon. They continued to help train us until our operators were quite good at the controls. We started with rentals and soon moved to purchase the hydraulic jacks as our operators became expert in operating the hydraulic jacks and the jacks proved to have a good service life.
Completions programs ended with steps that installed the Ecoquip jacks by bolting the main frame to the casing flange and spacing out the rod string. You can clean up frac fluids from a 2000 metre Montney well fairly quickly with a 144″ stroke length at 7 strokes per minute; essentially swabbing 24 hours with the test crew following the performance. The Ecoquip system became part of our routine completion operations for oil and gas wells. These hydraulic jacks also served as backstop when we had equipment failures or delivery problems – we could cost effectively move in an Ecoquip jack to keep production up.
