FTSI_Manufacturing_02.jpgFTS International Manufacturing produces and assembles the custom well stimulation units that are used in our fleets. Implementing completion solutions for today’s complex unconventional operations requires an expert understanding. We use the expertise from our operations to optimize the design and produce customized equipment for the most demanding and challenging reservoirs.

Our fleets are among the newest, most reliable and have the capability of meeting the most demanding pressure and flow rate requirements in the field. On average, our powerful pumps are less than three years old.

Well Completion Unit Manufacturing

Each well completion unit includes a 2500 horsepower (HP) high pressure pump, 2500 HP engine, transmission, radiator, and a proprietary silencer to mitigate engine noise.

Many components used in our fracturing equipment are fabricated in-house, including fuel tanks, structural brackets, hoses and mufflers. Most of the support equipment used in fracture operations such as blenders, hydration units, chemical additives and manifold trailers are also produced by Manufacturing.

Blenders with large tubs are manufactured to mix fluids with proppants at the location of the jobs. The mixture is transferred through pumps to move the fluid under pressure into the well.

Hydration units, large trailer-mounted containers, are manufactured to continuously mix fluids.

High pressure manifolds connect the well's tubing to the discharge lines, transporting the fluids and proppants from the pumps.

Pump Manufacturing

At our state-of-the-art facilities in Fort Worth and Cisco, Texas, we manufacture the high-pressure hydraulic pumps used to push fluids and proppant into a well formation. 3D CAD design, computer numeric control (CNC) machining and robotics are utilized extensively in the manufacture of durable pumps that are also easy to maintain. Full sets of replacement parts are also manufactured and distributed to our districts for ready availability should high wear parts need to be replaced.
