All equipment is certified and produced according to the best global standards. About 40% of the machinery is operated by the world's leading service companies such as Schlumberger, Baker Hughes, Weatherford, that are known to use only the high-quality and multifunctional equipment.
FIDMASH company was established in 2001 with the involvement of a foreign investor, as a specialized design and manufacturing company of the Russian-Belarusian group FID. During the first years of activities, the company developed a number of dimensional coiled tubing units of different classes with linepulls injectors from 10 to 45 tons on different chassis, with trailers and block design (including those for the offshore drilling platforms). Blowout prevention and other additional equipment (rewinders pipe, wellhead prefabricated bases of various modifications, pad mounting borehole, etc.) were designed and produced in addition to the coil tubing equipment. Coiled tubing equipment had been designed to ensure also the drilling works.
The products, manufactured by the company, are continuously improved. The components with insufficient quality would be replaced with more reliable equipment from the leading manufacturers, the innovative solutions that enabled export-orientation were applied. Joining the global market dictated the new requirements that have been successfully implemented. More effective design solutions were applied-they appeared as a result of working with international service companies, primarily with strategic partner - Schlumberger.
From 2004, the company started mastering the hydraulic fracturing units of main type. Using the best practices of world leaders, they created the pumps with chassis or semi-trailer, proppant transporters and proppant feeders with various sizes and performances, mixers (blenders), blocks, manifolds, control and operation stations Now the company produces a full range of equipment for hydraulic fracturing. Its hydraulic fracturing fleets are successfully operated at the fields of Russia and Belarus.
From 2008, FIDMASH develops its own production of various electronic systems, devices and software products in the structure of produced equipment.
In subsequent years, the Company mastered new equipment: cementing units, nitrogen evaporation units, mobile pumps for various purposes. The range of equipment for hydraulic fracturing was expanded due to various additional equipment. The electronic control systems and automation equipment were created for production processes. The Company was improving the coiled tubing technologies: it uses various chassis made in Belarus and abroad.
All the equipment, manufactured by FIDMASH, shall pass the required testing, compulsory certification on conformity to the requirements of technical regulations and normative documents, examination of industrial safety and it has all the necessary documents for its further registration and safe operation. All new developments are patented.
In 2002 it was decided to establish a system of quality management, corresponding to the international standards ISO 9000. The objective was implemented in the shortest time possible. From 2003 onwards, the company's quality management system was certified for conformity to requirements of international standard ISO 9001 by the Certification Association "Russian register" and further from 2006- by the Australian certification company SAI GLOBAL. In 2010, due to expansion of markets, as well as in accordance with the requirements of consumers, the management had taken decision on certification of products for compliance with the requirements of the American Petroleum Institute -API Specification (A6, A16). It was necessary to ensure the training and certification of the quality management system at the American Petroleum Institute as a first stage forimplementation of this decision. From 2011 onwards, the FIDMASH company is certified under the quality management system by the American Petroleum Institute for the following standards:
