Our Company

Since the company was first incorporated in 1999 as a manufacturer of downhole pressure and temperature measurement gauges, Pioneer Petrotech Services Inc. (referred to as ‘PPS’) has become recognized as one of the global leaders in research, development, and manufacturing of high quality downhole pressure and temperature gauges, surface data loggers, permanent downhole gauges, geothermal logging tools, and measurement while drilling (MWD) tools. PPS also offers project design, management and on-site installation services.

PPS is, as the name Pioneer suggests, a trailblazer creating emergent and state-of-the-art products that exceed industry standards. Products are available in a range of pressure and temperature specifications pursuant to customers’ needs. Through innovative electronic and mechanical designs we deliver a hybrid electronics module that allows tools to work continuously at 200 °C (392 °F). These high temperature products are also used outside of oil and gas production, being suitable for downhole measurements in the geothermal industry.

We continue to work tirelessly to expand our product offerings with new tools like a positive mud pulse MWD tool, an ESP monitoring gauge and remote data access and management system. These new products allow PPS to offer complete solutions for many stages of reservoir development and address critical challenges faced when producing all kinds of wells.

To provide exceptional customer support, PPS staff are readily available to respond to requests, provide technical assistance and deliver technical training whether by electronic correspondence, telephone or in person. Many of PPS's engineers are professional members of provincial engineering associations holding professional permits to practice, as required by the Engineering Act of Canada and applicable provincial and federal laws. The company is also Certified and has a permit to engage in providing engineering solutions, guidance and advice to its customers.
