The Stream-Flo Group of Companies donated four pairs of wellheads with choke valves to the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology’s (NAIT’s) Petroleum Engineering Technology program, according to a press release.

The approximate value of the wellheads and chokes that were donated was $30,000.

The Stream-Flo wellheads with flowing top sections and Master Flo choke valves off the wing valves are part of gas metering skids that are used by Petroleum Engineering Technology students to learn on the same oilfield equipment they will encounter on the job.

“The Stream-Flo wellhead and choke donation allows our students to get hands-on experience operating wellheads and choke wells they would encounter in a producing gas field. We have incorporated the Stream-Flo donation into a gas metering and separating skid which creates an extremely realistic learning environment for the students,” said Bruce Reinders, chair of NAIT’s Petroleum Engineering Technology program.


Stream-flo’s ongoing support of NAIT includes endowment funds for two annual scholarships in each of the Mechanical Engineering Technology Diploma and CNC Machinist Certificate programs, as well as a donation from founder Duncan and wife Verda McNeill of close to $1 million for NAIT’s Centre for Information and Communications Technology.

“Graduates of NAIT’s Petroleum Engineering Technology program, as well as other NAIT programs, have the practical knowledge they need to enter the industry and contribute on the job right away,” said Mark McNeill, President of the Stream-Flo Group of Companies.

In addition to NAIT, the company and employees support a wide range of local organizations in the communities in which it operates.

Stream-flo has close to 1,000 employees worldwide, with two-thirds working in Canada, mostly in Alberta.

“We’re proud to support that real-world learning with the donation of these wellheads and choke valves, as well as through our scholarships. Investing in NAIT and its students is critical to ensuring the Canadian oil and gas industry has the skilled, safety-conscious workforce it needs to continue leading the world in innovation and sustainable energy production,” said McNeill.

In 2014, the company donated $3 for every dollar raised by employees to purchase a total of $258,730.00 worth of medical equipment for Edmonton’s Stollery Children’s Hospital.
