Single Source Solution: Caterpillar supplies Propell Oilfield Equipment with Cat® Engine with Dynamic Gas Blending™, Cat Transmission, Cat Pressure Pump and Cat Vocational Truck for Landmark Well Stimulation Trailer

Calgary, Canada – Caterpillar Oil & Gas is pleased to announce the company has outfitted a well stimulation trailer for Propell Oilfield Equipment with all Cat®components for the first time in its noted history. Featured on the trailer is the Cat 3512C (HD) engine with Dynamic Gas Blending™, a Cat TH55-E70 transmission as well as the Cat WS255 quintuplex pressure pump with a stainless steel fluid end. Additionally, the 3512C (HD) engine is also equipped with Product Link™, the Caterpillar enterprise telematics solution for comprehensive engine management. The trailer will complete field testing using a Cat vocational truck and will be on display at the Propell Oilfied Equipment exhibit #3734 at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary, Canada. Cat dealer Finning Canada led the Caterpillar efforts on the sale and will continue to deliver stellar support and service to Propell Oilfield Equipment.

“At Caterpillar, we strive to consistently be easy to do business with for our customers and this project delivers on that goal. We’re currently the only manufacturer in the industry who can provide this scope of supply to customers and the value of utilizing a single supplier to completely outfit a well stimulation trailer should not be underestimated,” Aaron Jenkins, Caterpillar Oil & Gas sales manager noted. “At the end of the day, it’s one phone call to one point of contact for everything on the trailer instead of working with up to ten different suppliers, which was the industry standard prior to Caterpillar expanding its offerings for trailers.”

The WS255 pump offers a maximum power input of 1864 bkW (2500 bhp) @ 330 rpm and is ideal for well stimulation applications using Cat 3512C (HD) engines and TH55 transmissions. The Cat well stimulation pump product portfolio consists of five well stimulation pumps in triplex and quintuplex configurations in a standard, Extreme Duty (XD) series or Stainless Steel (SS) series. The Cat well stimulation pumps feature fluid ends and power ends designed to an industry standard footprint, allowing customers to easily fit the Cat pump into their existing trailer designs. The fluid ends on all models have a valve-over-valve design to simplify valve, seat and plunger installation and each fluid end block is manufactured with a robust material conditioning process. A full assortment of discharge flanges, suction manifolds, and bore sizes is also offered. The WS255 pump assembled on the Propell Oilfield Equipment trailer is also equipped with the new Cat valves and seats, launched in spring 2015. The trailer will operate as a rental unit in western Canada once field testing is complete.

Paul Zuk, Finning Canada petroleum manager noted, “We developed a long-standing relationship with Propell Oilfield Equipment over the years and are pleased to again collaborate with them on such a significant and innovative project. We’re looking forward to outfitting many more customers with the wide range of Cat solutions for well stimulation trailers as a single source supplier.”
