Our active Tier 1 green initiatives and commercial innovations combine to target an annual reduction in emissions of 343 metric tons and eliminate the use of over 36,400 litres of fresh water.

Tier 1 Green is more than just the colour of our logo

One of the core values of our team is a total commitment to health, safety, and the environment. This promotes “Green” thinking to be a key part of our culture. At Tier 1, we actively seek out, promote, and develop technologies and opportunities that have a positive impact on how our operations interact with the environment.


The electric E-skid™ technology from Tier 1 is designed specifically for improving the safety and efficiency of wireline pump-down operations.

Source power options available to enable a reduction of GHG emissions up to 14,000 kg/month.

Minimal operating noise levels eliminating the need for hearing protection and greatly reduces noise pollution.

A decreased in fuel consumption of over 25% vs a convention wireline unit when utilizing fuel for power generation.

Improved safety by means of eliminating steps to access, improved visibility, and an ergonomic cabin design.


The skid-mounted electric wireline units from Tier 1 are fully-commercialized and preferentially utilized by Tier 1 for pump-down plug-n-perf operations.

The accompanying chart details the efficiency achieved as well as the opportunity that was available for further emission reductions if all our pump-down plug-n-perforate operations were accomplished utilizing the E-skid™  technology powered with electricity generated by natural gas.

Additional reductions are available when connecting direct to grid power.

E-set Efficiencies

Eliminates the release of nearly 4,400 kilograms of noxious gas/year from plug setting operations, creating a healthier atmosphere for our employees and the environment.

Eliminates the consumption, and disposal, of 17,500 aerosol cans of cleaning agent and over 7,000 litres of oil per year.

Reduces the number of expendable components by over 52,000 units/year.

Eliminates 3 pieces of explosive material every time a plug is set, creating a safer work environment for our employees.

Eliminates the requirement to handle and bleed-off a pressurized setting tool at surface.


In 2021 Tier 1’s E-set™  technology started to be piloted on several client projects.

E-set™  technology is fully-commercialized and field-proven with our first complete pad, utilizing only E-set™  technology for plug setting, accomplished successfully in Q3-2021.

The accompanying chart details the achievements to date and the opportunity during the same time period that would have been realized with complete E-set™  utilization.

Tier 1 Smooth Cable Efficencies

The Tier 1 Smooth™ cable technology package specifically engineered for pump-down applications includes greaseless wireline, flex joint, over-the-line weight bars and our proprietary ballistic release tool.

Eliminates the consumption of grease when compared to utilizing standard braided wireline during pump down plug-n-perf operations.

Allows for varying run-in and pull-out speeds without risking any torque effects on the line.

Cleaner operation which reduces safety hazards of slippery gloves, slips, trips, and falls.

Tier 1 Smooth Cable accomplishments

In 2021, Tier 1’s utilization of Smooth™ Cable technology has eliminated the consumption of over 1.2 million litres of grease while executing our plug-n-perforate operations.
