Phoenix buys Robin’s Oilfield Hauling

NISKU, Atla. — Phoenix Oilfield Hauling says it has acquired Robin’s Oilfield Hauling and Hot Shot Service for $21.8 million.

The deal is expected to increase Phoenix’s fleet to about 60 trucks and 80 trailers and expand its operating presence in the core central Alberta area, said Phoenix president Leo Provencher, adding that by the end of this summer the company will be operating out of Devon, Nisku, and Grande Prairie.

Robin’s founder Robin Peterson will remain with the company and deal with field operations. General manager Darwin Hartley will remain in his current role.

Devon, Alta.-based Robin’s specializes in the transportation of supplies and equipment required for the exploration, development and production of petroleum products. It reported annual revenue of $10.5 million last year.

Phoenix offers services related to the transportation, handling, and in some cases storage of oilfield equipment and supplies; as well as specialized picking and handling equipment, flatdeck heavy haul, and pipe stockpiling.
