ALDERSYDE, Alta. — Mullen Transportation and E. Grueben’s Transport have joined upto offer a range of services to oil and gas companies in the Mackenzie Delta Region of the Northwest Territories.
The partnership will allow Inuvialiut-owned E. Grueben to play a major role in the economic development of the western Arctic.
As part of the venture, the two companies have taken ownership of the region’s only fully-equipped base camp, situated in Tuktoyaktuk, NWT.
The companies claim they are prepared to meet the needs of oil and gas companies who have committed to extensive drilling projects in the remote region.
“The combination of Mullen and E. Grueben’s will provide our customers with a total supply chain solution,” said Bruce Mullen, Senior Vice President of Mullen Transportation. “The North is an extremely difficult and sensitive area to operate within and requires a unique skill set. Our northern partners at E. Grueben’s have the experience and understanding of the challenges presented by operating in the harsh winter conditions.”
