Sanjel is a specialized, privately owned global energy service company with over 30 years of experience. Sanjel was founded in 1982 by Don MacDonald, the company’s chairman. It has main offices in Calgary, Houston, Denver, Dubai and Mexico City, and employs 4,100 people. His son, Darin MacDonald, is the company’s president and chief executive, having worked at the business for 23 years. The two have equal financial control over the family’s holdings, which include energy businesses, real estate assets and capital and technology units.The Company's large-scale, international operations stretch across North America and overseas. Sanjel has team members in over 30 field districts, 12 laboratories, 11 regional maintenance facilities and three training centers.[citation needed]

Sanjel provides two specialized product offerings - Pressure Pumping and Completions. Each product offering is complete with its own engineering products and custom-designed and manufactured equipment.[citation needed]

A preliminary prospectus the company issued in 2014 indicated that it would generate $1.5-billion (Canadian) in its fiscal 2014 year, making it third-largest in its industry. The company is equally controlled by Don and Darin McDonald.[1] It has become an important provider of hydraulic fracturing services as the North American energy industry has tapped increasing volumes of oil and gas trapped in shale formations.[citation needed]

Its largest customers include SM Energy Co., Continental Resources Inc., Arc Resources Ltd., Bonavista Energy Corp., Newfield Exploration Co., Husky Energy Inc. and Encana Corp. Its top 10 customers account for about 65 per cent of company revenue. Their customer list features Canadian and American companies who are developing shale resources.[2]
