New Pipelines can Ease Costly Pipeline Constraints

by | May 22, 2018 | Oil And Gas

Delayed oil pipeline construction is costing the Canadian economy as much as $15.6 billion a year, the Globe and Mail report. That’s a steep discount. Adding on new pipelines is one way to help ease the discount.

Before that can happen, though, finding the right construction company will need to come first. Having a bit of trouble? Don’t know if you’re hiring the right one? Read on for tips.

Know the company

Learn as much information about the company. Find out how long it’s been in the industry and field. A bit of history will tell you if you’ve got a company with significant experience in the field or if you’re dealing with a newly-launched firm.


Check out the company’s site before you move forward with anything. Consider the services available. Alberta oilfield construction companies, for instance, are a very specific group. This will help you narrow down your options so you can find out the company you need that much sooner.

Check the news

Be on the lookout for any news regarding the company. If they have a bad reputation in the media, that may be enough to put the brakes on any thoughts of partnerships. Also, if there are any complaints lodged against the company or if its litigation history, then those are all good reasons to give the company a pass and to move on to the other options in the field.

Switch to a new one

If you already have an existing pipeline and you want to add another one, that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to hire the same construction team. Be on the lookout for signs that your first team did a bad job. If you want to engage the services of a better firm, look to leaders like Platinum Pipefitting Inc. for Alberta oilfield construction companies.
