At Trinidad, we’re proud to give back to the communities where we work and live. It’s a responsibility our team takes just as seriously as providing value for our customers and our shareholders.
From coordinating school supply drives to volunteering countless lunch hours to make sandwiches for those less fortunate, our team is proud to dedicate time and resources to great causes. Just as our involvement enriches the lives of those in the community, it brings us so much joy to be able to lend a hand.
Giving back to the communities in which we live and work is an important part of Trinidad’s culture, no matter the state of the industry. That’s why this year, perhaps more than ever, our employees have been working together to give back in any way they can. From raising money for local initiatives; to cooking for those in need; to coordinating toy drives; there’s been no shortage of community involvement around here.

James Kapeller was born, raised, and still lives in Arborfield, in the northeastern part of Saskatchewan.
It may not be obvious, but coming from this rural town had an influence on his decision to work in the oilpatch, and ultimately for Trinidad.
“It’s a little town in Saskatchewan that’s had a lot of oilfield people come out of it over the years. I grew up around them,” said Kapeller. “It seemed like a good way to make a good living.”
It certainly turned out that way. Kapeller, who joined Trinidad in 2003 as a Floorhand, is now a roving Toolpush (aka Rig Manager) who goes wherever he’s needed. He spent most of the last four years in British Columbia, and is now Relief Rig Manager on Rig 60, a tele double near Hinton, Alberta.
