Oil production is very prominent throughout the world as it is one of the main modes of creating energy. Canada is the sixth largest producer in the world, producing 2.6 million barrels of oil per day. Canada alone gets 42 percent of its energy from oil. It is a commodity across the world.

There are two types of oils, conventional and unconventional. Crude oil in Canada can be found in both forms. Conventional oil flows naturally and can be pumped to the surface without added substances. Unconventional oil is found as a solid below the surface and needs to be diluted or heated to flow. In order to gather unconventional oil, oil and gas companies tend to use hydraulic fracturing. Helios sells the equipment needed to extract the crude oil. Customers in Canada require high-quality equipment such as gate valves, frac heads and debris catchers that will allow them to prepare for completion and production

Alberta is the largest oil and gas producer in Canada followed by Saskatchewan. In 2013, Alberta produced 1.94 million barrels per day, primarily from oil sands. Saskatchewan produced 40,000 barrels of oil per day in 2012, and is constantly researching new technologies at the Petroleum Technology Research Centre to produce oil and gas more effectively while minimizing the impact on the environment. Within two provinces in Canada the oil and gas market is extremely prominent. Oil and natural gas can be found in these two provinces as well as Manitoba, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Quebec. British Columbia finds most of its natural gas reserves in the Northeastern part of the province and produced 21,000 barrels per day in 2013.
