Calfrac Well Services Ltd. (CWS), Canada, is one of the world’s largest oil field service companies. The fleet of its representative office in Russia consists not only of specialized machinery, such as hydraulic fracturing equipment or coiled tubing units but also of trucks.
The company searched for a solution that would help cope with the problem of fuel frauds committed by drivers. After a monitoring system had been installed, the number of fuel thefts decreased. However, the issue with fuel was still unresolved.
Montrans has developed a solution that allows comparison of the fuel amount both supplied during a fill-up and that got into the fuel tank. In addition, the system helps quickly detect unauthorized interference with the equipment operation.

The customer has noted a tremendous reduction in fuel consumption since the implementation of the solution.
Dishonest drivers know that their actions will not go unnoticed and prefer not to risk and steal fuel during a fill-up.
Now, the telematics solution monitors fuel both in vehicles and in fuel reservoirs and refueling trucks.
Unauthorized interference with the sensor operation can be quickly detected and acted upon.
