Mullen Transportation and E. Gruben’s Transport have completed an expansion of their northern operations, the companies report.
E. Gruben’s is an Inuvialuit-owned and operated company based in the Northwest Territories, and along with Mullen it jointly owns Beaufort Oilfield Support Services (BOSS). Marine and land operations have been expanded under the partnership.
The marine operations were expanded to include the addition of the John Wurmlinger marine base camp barge with fuel storage capabilities, a helicopter pad, a new warehouse and a new 800 horsepower tug. The expansion allows Mullen and E. Gruben to better service northern customers through the entire supply chain.
BOSS Land was expanded thanks to the acquisition of a significant part of Arctic Oil and Gas a Northwest Territories-based company providing support services to the oil and gas industry in the MacKenzie Delta region. It includes a 140-man base camp with fuel storage and marine access. Catering services and docking and staging facilities were also included in the acquisition.
