Case Studies

icon-case-study.pngIncreasing Pumping hours

We are pumping more hours per day than almost any other fracturing service provider in North America. And when time is money, seconds matter.


STEP Energy Services leverages modern technology that allows operators to make better decisions in real-time. STEP-conneCT reduces bridge plug milling time by over 215%.

STEP Energy Services leverages modern technology that allows operators to make better decisions in real-time. STEP-IQ fiber optic solutions deliver realtime data accuracy and value for operators.

icon-case-study.pngQNT 3000 Thunder Pump

In just over four months STEP’s QNT 3000 Thunder Pump has worked for eight clients, on 10 wells, with a total of 4,534 cycles per hour, without any downtime.

icon-case-study.pngLong Lateral Millout

With the increasing number of horizontal wells and multistage fractures needed to access unconventional resources, producers in the WCSB are looking at alternative well designs to maximize production economically.

icon-case-study.pngHigh Pressure Milling

In August 2014, an oil and gas operator with assets in the Duvernay play requested STEP’s engineering team analyze the feasibility of milling out composite bridge plugs using 60.3mm (2-3/8”) outer diameter coiled tubing (CT) 7,400m (24,278ft) in length.

icon-case-study.pngMilling as a Guarantee

With the growing trend toward wells with long, challenging horizontal segments requiring multistage hydraulic-fracture stimulation treatments, completion operations play a critical role in the production of the well.

icon-case-study.pngFrac Through Coil

A Calgary based, mid-size oil producer working in southwest Saskatchewan was looking for a unique solution that would allow them to frac through coil with a high enough flow rate to be successful.

icon-case-study.pngCT Conveyed Fracturing Technology

In late 2014, a junior E&P company operating in the Kakwa region of the Montney was eager to find an effective completion technology in response to operational challenges commonly found in the region.

icon-case-study.pngCoiled Tubing vs Snubbing

What was once considered impossible using coiled tubing due to extended reach and set-down force is now possible thanks to STEP’s fit-for-purpose equipment and operational efficiencies.

icon-case-study.pngString Optimization

STEP’s technical specialists conducted a thorough analysis and developed a plan to run a customdesigned 73mm (2-7/8”) string with a 0.250” wall, coupled with an in-depth monitoring and string management program.
