You might not think oil companies need propane. Surely, they utilize the same fuels they’re helping to produce and supply, right? Not necessarily! Versatile propane proves to be a more cost-effective choice for all types of oil field jobs. And Pico Propane’s commercial services division is geared to be a full-service partner with a range of businesses with industrial fuel needs, particularly oilfields!
Propane is the smart choice for a range of oilfield operations. Efficient and clean burning, propane can power a wide variety of equipment including wells, submersible pumps, oil- and water-heating equipment, and drilling rigs. It’s also ideal for temporary heating in outdoor work areas in the colder seasons.
Propane-fueled forklifts can be used outdoors in wet conditions, unlike electric-powered forklifts. Plus, refueling is quick and easy with replaceable cylinders. Recharging, on the other hand, takes equipment out of service for hours, slowing down operations.
Speaking of power, propane-fueled backup generators will safely keep your systems running when you are off-grid, too.
Pico is set up to check all the boxes for oilfield services. We have a full range of products and services in addition to propane, including commercial oils and lubricants to protect equipment—and keep it running well.
We offer customized programs to ensure ready supplies, including an automatic delivery program and wireless tank monitoring. Satellite monitoring makes our monitors are ideal for oilfield locations, or any off-grid location that can’t fully rely on cellular data. Additionally, we offer metered transport as well as volume discounts for a range of fuels including gasoline, marine fuels, on- and off-road diesel, as well as bulk propane and cylinders.
Pico has the know-how to get you set up and operating efficiently. We can consult on tank sizes, and handle tank installations and service. We also perform system inspections and leak checks.
From degassing storage tanks and cleaning ocean-going vessels to tank cleaning and purging, or working with thermal oxidizers or vaporizers, the commercial fuel experts at Pico Propane & Fuels will work closely with you to develop the right solution.
