What is an Oil and Gas Supply Store?

What does Kimray do for Supply Stores

Oil and gas supply stores are a vital part of the energy production ecosystem.

In this article, we’ll talk about what they carry, how they help producers, and how Kimray partners with supply stores.

What Equipment Do Oil and Gas Supply Stores Carry?

Supply stores stay alert to the type of equipment producers in their region need. Offerings will differ by location, but basics typically include:

  • Pipe
  • Valves
  • Fittings
  • Tools
  • Controls
  • Pumps
  • Paint & Coatings

Many also carry accessories like FR clothing, outerwear, hard hats, gloves, eye wear and other safety equipment.

Where are Oil and Gas Supply Stores Located?

While these stores vary in size, they are located where the energy is being produced. In every major North American Basin, from the Permian to the Marcellus-Utica, from the Bakken to the Haynesville, you will find oil and gas supply stores.

Convenient location is central to their value proposition.

What are the Benefits of Using a Supply Store?

Again, convenience is the key benefit supply stores provide producers. If your site is down and you need a product to get back online, your quickest bet is to contact your area oil and gas supply store and check their stock.

Do Supply Stores Stock Kimray Products?

Because Kimray valves and control equipment are widely used in oilfield production, many supply stores stock our products.

Typical offerings include standard Back Pressure Regulators, High Pressure Control Valves and Liquid Level Control Equipment.

Does Kimray Partner with Supply Stores?

Kimray partners with regional supply stores in several ways. Our goal is to provide assistance to help them get producers what they need.

This support has included:

  • phone assistance—we are always available and want to make sure we are all providing what producers need
  • classroom training—we provide training on how to specify the correct Kimray product
  • field visits—we have also made field visits with supply store representatives to help producers diagnose and solve production problems

If you are a supply store and would like to set up a training session for your team, contact your local Kimray store or authorized distributor.
