It might come as a surprise to find out oil and gas chemicals weren’t always delivered straight to the wellhead. The relationship between chemical and oilfield companies was like any other distant commodity vendor/customer relationship. It is in this tenuous communications gap that the story of ACE Completions begins.
Bottlenecks & Breakthroughs
Oil and gas chemicals companies used to put raw materials into 50-gallon drums on loading docks. Services companies paid third party trucking companies to pick up and deliver the chemicals to their warehouse.
At the warehouse, services companies were paid to track inventory and fulfill orders to well site locations. They also paid trucking companies a second time to deliver the products.
Like everything else in the oilfield, “that’s the way it always was”. Enter ACE Completions Founder & CEO, Jody Ehler.
Bulk to the Wellhead is Born
In 2011, Ehler experienced the extraordinary inefficiency of this system first-hand. After six months of working to import ceramic proppant for a consulting client in West Texas, he had enough.
There had to be a better way, but circumventing the system wasn’t enough. Someone had to turn it on its head. It was time for a pioneer in bulk to the wellhead chemical delivery.
Recognizing the opportunity, Ehler tapped Co-founder Jeff Louis and ACE Completions was born.
