DSI further enhances ALS’ ability to service the upstream Oil & Gas industry with leading technical services across all major geographies.
Established in 2010, DSI Thru-Tubing Inc is headquartered in Calgary, Canada, with operations throughout North America with specialized, premium thru tubing intervention services. DSI was formed with a vision to create a leading company of thru tubing experts, focused on a responsive customer service and a culture of innovation to address customer issues. DSI offers a range of unique, specialist thru tubing tools with innovative solutions and specializes in the milling of FRAC plugs/seats and the associated bespoke tools and experienced team of 48 staff to deliver the best in class thru tubing services. DSI offers drillable FRAC plugs, ball seat systems, motors, mills and cleanout accessories. From design through to production, service and support, customer service delivered by a highly qualified team of experts has become synonymous with the DSI brand.
The new venture with this leading service capability adds to ALS Oil & Gas’s technical and product expertise, specifically within the companies thru tubing specialized service arena. DSI will operate alongside the existing ALS Oil & Gas brand, Wellvention, and will allow DSI Thru Tubing to offer their own range of specialist fishing tools together with innovative efficiency improvement tools such as their PACS FRAC cleanout hydraulically operated circulation tool to the US and Canadian markets. Wellvention already has a strong footprint in other key oil and gas hubs globally; the UK, Europe, Africa and the Middle East and joining forces with DSI is the next step on realizing the brand’s global ambitions.
Current President, Dave Griffith, stated that a large benefit of this agreement will be the opportunity to lever the benefits of a global team, as he explains, "We have a lot in common with Wellvention, a focus on specialist tools and a real passion for thru tubing. Joining forces with Wellvention will give us access to new proprietary tools and the backing of the global infrastructure of ALS."
ALS Oil & Gas MD, Pascal Bartette commented: "There is a natural synergy between DSI and Wellvention, both in terms of geographical focus and the complementary product ranges. Culturally, we believe DSI’s customer-driven approach will closely mirror the same values demonstrated by Wellvention and the wider ALS Oil & Gas group."
