Our flush-by services repair sanded vertical, slant and horizontal wells, returning them to full pumping capacity.
Clean Harbors significantly improves oil and gas well production through expert flush-by techniques.
Oil wells can become clogged due to solids trapped below. In addition, rods may break due to a number of environmental factors. Quality of production can be severely reduced, slowing projects down to a near halt. To safely and effectively repair these critical issues, businesses need experts with successful methods to keep production moving forward.
Clean Harbors Flush-By Services significantly improve well production by carefully repairing rods and properly flushing away debris embedded within the wells. With a set of high-level troubleshooting methods, Clean Harbors can efficiently resolve problems ranging from damaged pumps to tubing strings.

Fire Blade Welding
All of our continuous rod units are equipped with a vast selection of fishing tools to repair broken rods, including fire blade welders. These welders are designed to fuse together the broken continuous rod, so it can be reinstalled in the well.
Not only will you save costs associated with traditional service rigs, you’ll benefit from cost savings associated with the fire blade welders.
Avoid costly leaks by testing facilities, line, and wellheads before operations start up.
Clean Harbors Pressure Trucks test your equipment before operations begin to ensure production accuracy.
Your equipment needs to be ready before operations even begin. Comprehensive testing for leaks, pressures and flow rates should be evaluated up front by a company with a reputation of getting the job done right. Clean Harbors offers a fleet of pressure trucks to tackle a wide array of challenges, providing the best in environmental services.
Clean Harbors Pressure Trucks strategically push fluid at high pressures into wellheads, pipes and vessels to analyze and test for leaks as well as to monitor displacement. Our trucks have state-of-the-art equipment to provide you with the most accurate testing results, ranging from rates of volumes pumped to rate of pumping and pressures.

Vapour Tight Tank Production Packages
Clean Harbors vapour tight tank production packages meet your specifications for a single and multi-well battery
Clean Harbors Vapour Tight Tank Production Packages make your job quick and easy with cost-effective, positive pressure production rentals.
Our oil and gas process equipment is designed to work with sour oil (H2S) production to capture emulsion and burn all sour vapour. Our units eliminate odor on lease sites―safeguarding clients and landowners from odorous gas or oil.
Clean Harbors Vapour Tight Tank Production Packages have built-in safety features for when vapour is displaced from the tank truck. When loading fluid, vapour is pushed back into the gas tight tank and sent to the flare, thereby protecting the truck operator from fumes and preventing vapour and odor from being released on site.
