New Products, New Trucks, and Old Traditions
It’s been a busy couple weeks at PIT. Everyone is back from holidays now and it’s been a nose to the grindstone kind of month. We’ve got some new hires coming in, have been working on training some others, and rewarded a more seasoned employee.
So, what’s new at PIT?
FlowFit Modular Lubricator Release
A week ago we released our new FlowFit, Flow-T Replacement Lubricator. It’s a design we’ve been working on for quite some time, and we’re very happy with how it came out!
Traditionally, Flow-T’s can be a pain to remove and replace on a wellhead. The FlowFit drastically reduces the amount of time and money wasted during these installations. It’s an all machine forged, no weld design that bolts directly to the Master Valve and the Wing Valve. This means that the only thing that needs to be replaced is the Flow-T itself, allowing the valves to remain in place. The added convenience of the FlowFit lubricator can save up to $27,000 in costs for the producer.
Curling the Night Away
PIT has been a proud part of the Annual Red Deer Oilmen’s Bonspiel for many years. We are both a regular sponsor of the event and a regular competitor in the tournament.
This year the PIT Crew was represented by Mark Sutherland, Brett and Kevin Kroetsch, and Dan Boutin. This team has been a top contender in the past, often kicking butt and placing in the tournament. Unfortunately, this year the ice was against us.
The PIT team won their first match, placing them in the A level of the competition. They went on to play in the Saturday portion of the bonspiel and were eliminated Saturday evening. The team that beat them went on to win the entire tournament and we congratulate them on their victory.
We’d like to thank the community and the Red Deer Oilmen for allowing us to be a part of this fun and exciting event for another year.
A New Truck for an Experienced Employee
Those of you that have worked with PIT before will undoubtedly have met Laura-Gene Haga; or LG, as we often call her. LG has been a member of the PIT Crew for over five years. Located in the Red Deer office, LG works as our Oil Engineering Technologist. Always hustling and bustling, Laura-Gene can be found in the field just as much as in her upstairs office, showing us again and again just how hard of a worker she can be.
As a thank you for all the hard work she’s given us over the years, we wanted to do something special to show LG how appreciated she is. And nothing seemed better suited than a brand new Dodge for her to do all her business in.
We hope you like the new truck, LG.
