Oil and Gas

Oil and Gas

Today oil and gas continue to rely on wire rope and rigging for successful operations. For forty years Trinity Sling has distributed the highest quality wire ropes and slings to those same oil and gas service companies and drillers. Our Texas location landed us in the middle of the fracing boom that has fundamentally changed the oil business. Trinity knows the oil industry so well because, frankly, we helped change it.

Standard and Custom Well Products

Over the years we have found that the drilling rig is the heaviest user of wire rope products. Trinity supplies Washington Wire Rope for drill lines and air hoist lines. We also supply Columbus McKinnon wire rope clips, shackles, and chain as our domestic brand. To help our customers we offer excellent European products such as Green Pin shackles. Trinity supplies hardware and raw materials, like wire rope, but we also custom-fabricate slings for drilling. Such slings include BOP slings, well-head chain slings, derrick bridles and tong snub lines for customers who would like slings made to order.

Service on the Pad

Well service for oil and gas wells presents special rigging needs that we are happy to address. Trinity supplies tubing lines and sand lines in imported and domestic varieties. Additionally, we perform spooling and storage services for tubing lines. For those customers that need overhead lifting assistance, we distribute Johnson-branded wire rope blocks. Trinity can also address pipeline restraint requirements for hydraulic fracturing, for we manufacture and distribute the Gangline™ system, a lightweight, easy-to-assemble temporary iron restraint system.

Sling Recertification and Fall Protection

Pipelines, refineries and oilfield-related manufacturing are heavy users of overhead lifting slings. To meet customer demand Trinity Sling fabricates all sizes and types of lifting slings, including wire rope slings, chain slings, web slings, and round slings. We recommend regular recertification of all lifting slings. To assist with tracking and documentation we use InfoChip RFID tags on our fabricated slings. InfoChip provides an easy way to track and schedule annual pull tests and inspections.

Safety is a critical aspect of every part of the oil industry. To assist in maintaining the safest possible workplace Trinity Sling offers a wide variety of fall protection products and other related items. Derrick harnesses, SLR’s (or yo-yo’s), lanyards, and custom-made Geronimo lines are common workplace safety-related items we provide. We have also designed a full line of pressure line restraints including Gangline™, hose hobbles, and the newly-developed Whip-Lash™.

Customer Service under Pressure

Although service is always a customer priority, it is critical when the oilfield market is hot. At Trinity we pride ourselves on knowledgeable employees that can service customers quickly without sacrificing quality. We speak the oilfield language and always strive to meet its needs.
