3D Epix Inc. has a vast experience in producing 3D animations and renderings for the Oil and Gas industry. Animated videos or 3D images can effectively demonstrate drilling, completion and production processes; showcase your tools; promote or present an innovative technology and illustrate a region-specific geology.
Our studio is able to create any kind of oil and gas related 3D graphics (videos or stills) that would demonstrate various processes and services: rig mats installation, drilling, fracking, SAGD, transportation, storage, refinery plants, pipelines, operating equipment, etc.

Website Graphics (TRICAN)
The following 3D renderings have been created for Trican Well Services new web page launched in spring 2015. The Land Cube image is created for the main page and smaller images are made as the hero banners for various services that the company offers. You can take a look how it all came together at Trican's website: trican.ca
NTD Liner-Top Packer 3D Animation (WEATHERFORD)
This animation showcases NTD liner-top packer manufactured by Weatherford. The video demonstrates how the tool parts shift making the rubber element expand in order to hold the packer still in a wellbore.

Peace River Bitumen Deposits (STRATA OIL)
These 3D renderings have been created for Strata Oil company as parts of their presentation on Cadotte Central and Cadotte West (Peace River area in Northern Alberta) geology rich with carbonates. The presentation proposes Cyclic Steam Simulation method of oil extraction in the area. The final image shows the aerial view of the land with the leases that belong to different oil companies.
tNavigator (GLOBAL NEW PETRO TEC)
This 3D animation showcases tNavigator - new reservoir simulation software developed by Rock Flow Dynamics company. The application is able to simulate SAGD, CSS, steam flooding, hydrofracking and unconventional tight oil and gas.

Rig Mats 3D Animation (LOADLINK)
This project is entitled to showcase client's rig mats that are used to support drilling rigs and various heavy equipment in swampy areas where the ground is soft and unstable. The rig mats can be used as the support for drilling pads and as the temporary access roads to various remote off-road locations.
Here are three short animations from this project. The first video is a general presentation of the rig mats. It demonstrates the application of the mats, the equipment they can support and the environments they are used in. The second animation demonstrates how the mats are installed. The third animation shows the distribution of weight across the mats and their capacity.

3D renderings in this section represent various oil and gas tools that 3D Epix Inc. has created for various companies. Two vertically oriented renderings on the right side are a packer in a wellbore and a top drive testing head, both produced by World Oil Tools. The renderings below are: iFrac Cem (Trican), Multi-Stage Frac toolstring (Tryton), NDT Top-Liner Packer (Weatherford) and Plug and Perf Tool (Smith International).
Pipeline Heating System
3D animation created for Kold Katcher company is showcasing the technology that prevents surface gas pipe lines from freezing during extremely low temperatures, therefore, eliminating loss of production and hazardous conditions. The video demonstrates how Kold Katcher pipeline heating system gets assembled and how it functions.
