Gangline Website – Launch


Gangline Website

Representatives from Trinity Sling (in blue) and Crown Supply, Inc. on a recent large-scale Gangline™ installation in the Bakken Shale in North Dakota.

Trinity Sling, licensed distributor of the patented Gangline™ Pipe Restraint System, is proud to bring you this innovative, new website for our revolutionary temporary pipeline restraint system that improves oilfield and fracking safety. The new website provides a comprehensive overview of Gangline™ and its many benefits.

Here you will find a wealth of technical information on the product, receive information on training and installation, access documentation of certification and recertification of Gangline™ components, and find many pictures and a video.

See first-hand what happens when a temporary pipeline malfunctions in a pressure failure, and you will understand how dangerous temporary iron can be to crews working on an oil field or fracking pad if these temporary pipelines are not properly restrained with a reliable, high quality pipe restraint system like the proven Gangline™. The video shows how the brilliantly engineered Gangline™ layout creates a choke on either side of a rupture reducing in-line flowline movement as well as lateral (whip) movement.

The new Gangline website will also feature a video demonstrating the ease of installing the Gangline™ system on a temporary pipeline. Easy and quick assembly and disassembly is a well-known trademark of the Gangline™, as touted by Jim Richardson of Mercer Well Service in Texas. “The ease of application and transportation are a big advantage and selling point of Gangline™,” Richardson says.

Besides providing outstanding information on the Gangline™, we have built the new website to enhance customer service. Customers can request service and product / parts information through the site, and a “request a quote” feature makes it fast and easy to get cost estimates in the works for a Gangline™ system.

The Gangline™ has greatly expanded its presence in oil and gas fields around the globe. Demand for the product is increasing, and parent company Trinity Sling is prepared to meet the industry’s needs. Company representatives who work with the Gangline™ System comment:

“We are committed to expanding Gangline™ distribution throughout the fracking and oil field industries. We have been successful in expanding into Canada and other locations worldwide. Although the oil industry is going through a difficult time, we still are confident that we have a lot of opportunity for Gangline™ to make a big difference for oil companies and fracking and oil field operators, as these companies are looking to increase efficiency and safety, which is what Gangline™ helps to do.”

Those same representatives said that last August in Canada, British Columbia passed a new law requiring engineered restraint of pipe systems on oil field and fracking work sites to protect workers. Trinity Sling and its Gangline™ pipe restraint system were quick on the scene in working with oil field and fracking companies to ensure their operations were in total compliance with the new law. This alacrity illustrates Trinity Sling’s service-minded business model, and through their resources and inventories, it also demonstrates their ability to deliver the market’s premier temporary pipe restraining safety solution to operators throughout British Columbia in an expedited manner, the company notes.

Closing Thoughts – Why Gangline?

According to Trinity Sling, “We developed Gangline™ at the request of some of our oil field customers, who had a need for a secure, durable, easy-to-rig and rig-down on the iron, lightweight oilfield restraint system. We created it, engineered it, tested it, patented it, and are selling it domestically and internationally to meet the changing needs of the oilfield. We look forward to getting more of it out on the iron in the coming year as word spreads.”

Pipe Restraining Systems Mandatory for British Columbia Well Services

The Gangline™ Pipe Restraining System is the solution to the new British Columbia well service restraint requirements.

To comply with recent changes in Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) regulation in British Columbia, all Well Service Operators must now use pipe restraint systems that conform to new, more stringent OHS guidelines. The Gangline™ pipe restraint system was engineered for just such an application, providing peace of mind by protecting people, property, and profits. With Gangline™, well service compliance needs are covered. The new WorkSafe BC-published OHS guidelines for restraint of oil and gas piping systems state:

Employers need to ensure that the anchoring and restraint system will withstand the forces that could occur in the event of a failure of the piping system. An example of an adequate engineered restraint system is a purpose-built system composed of restraint and anchoring components which have been manufactured and engineered to be adequate for the operating pressures (OHS Regulation Guideline Part 23, Section 23.69[3]).

To view the full regulation details, click here.

The Gangline™ pipe restraint system enables well service operators to relax, as it renders compliance painless. It is:

  • Made specifically for oil and gas operations, with the owner/operator in mind.
  • Professionally engineered
  • Lightweight, high-performing and flexible
  • Easy to install and use in sub-zero conditions
  • Hydrophobic: doesn’t absorb oil or water, is washable
  • UV-protected and corrosion resistant
  • Easily maneuvered for access for leak repair
  • Traceable by serialization and date of manufacture
  • Easily transportable; shippable world-wide

Our professionally-engineered design uses the highest quality materials to create the most durable, lightweight, and easy-to-use temporary pipe restraint system on the market.

Well service operators can now become compliant with this new regulation while protecting people, property and profits with Gangline™.

Patented Pipe Restraint System Protects People & Profits in Oil Fields

Trinity Sling Authority ONG Market Place Article, October, 2015

The Gangline™ Pantented Pipe Restraint System is the dependable, go-to solution for restraining temporary pipelines and frack irons in oil fields.

The Gangline™ System is a professionally-engineered pipe restraining system designed to limit the whip range of the pipe should a catastrophic failure occur to the flow line or union connections. Brilliantly engineered, the Gangline™ System consists of only two parts: restraints and shackles. It offers a lightweight, high-strength installation solution for your peace of mind.

The Gangline™ System’s patented design uses the highest quality materials to create the most durable, lightweight and easy-to-use temporary pipe restraint on the market. Gangline™ restraints are installed in a leap-frog configuration. Each pipe section is secured by both the upstream and downstream sections of the pipeline in the event of a failure. The Gangline™ layout creates a choke on either side of a rupture, reducing in-line flowline movement as well as lateral (whip) movement. The Gangline™ System offers end-to-end restraint of flowlines for all lengths of pipe sections as well as swivels and joints.

The Gangline™ is an exceptional product with equally great service from Trinity Sling. “The system is one of the first on the market to be designed from the start as a restraint system, not something that was retrofitted or simply retagged to be a restraint system. “[Trinity Sling is] definitely the pioneer of dedicated restraint systems and I base that opinion on 15 years of pressure pumping experience along with 7 years in the HSE field,” comments Jim Richardson of Texas-based Mercer Well Service.

Every Gangline™ System is serialized and dated on durable waterproof tags. Gangline™ is traceable from end user through restraint fabrication back to original manufacturers and material lots. Gangline™ receives annual recertification and refurbishment from Trinity Sling. Gangline™ saves money with the fastest assembly and disassembly times in pressure pumping services. The innovative and simple design is trainable (Trinity Sling offers complete training to ensure the temporary pipeline is efficiently and accurately installed), inspectable and reliable. The Gangline™ System disassembles mid-flowline, allowing quick flowline refits and leak repairs.

Gangline™ System Product Highlights

  • Lightweight and flexible
  • Easy/quick to assemble and disassemble
  • Provides clear access to connection points for leak repair
  • Hydrophobic – is washable and does not absorb oil or water
  • UV-protected and corrosion-resistant
  • Easy to use in frozen conditions
  • Suitable for wide operating temperature range
  • Customizable to specific job requirements
