Matrix Service provides top-tier service to Western Canada’s energy companies

Connecting the upstream markets to downstream refineries, aboveground storage terminals serve as a key link in the oil and gas value chain that ultimately transforms crude oil into useable product. Equally important are the cryogenic and other pressure vessels and terminals that store products like LNGs, NGLs and other gases for transportation, power generation, petrochemical, or other uses.

In Western Canada – home to the third-largest oil reserves in the world – the need for additional capacity continues to grow and, as new pipelines are added and pipeline expansions approved, the trend is only expected to continue.

With nearly a decade of service to energy companies across Western Canada, top-tier contractors like Matrix Service, which has built nearly 10 million barrels of storage in Alberta in just the last seven years, are answering the call.

Matrix Service is well-recognized as a leader in the design, construction, repair and maintenance of aboveground storage tanks.  But the legacy of the company’s parent, Matrix Service Company (NASDAQ: MTRX), reaches back even further – to 1984, when its founders committed themselves to building a company known for exceptional service, first in aboveground storage solutions.

It is this commitment that has resulted in Matrix Service Company and its subsidiaries being recognized among the top 100 contractors in North America for more than eight consecutive years and being twice recognized by Forbes as one of the Top 100 Most Trustworthy Companies in America.

Today, Matrix Service Company is parent to a family of companies that include Matrix Service, Matrix NAC and Matrix PDM Engineering. Together, these companies design, build, and maintain infrastructure critical to North America’s energy, power, and industrial markets. The company’s products division, Matrix Applied Technologies, also offers precision engineered, premier products for aboveground storage tanks that include FlowdomeTM geodesic domes, internal floating roofs, drain systems, suction lines, and skimmers and seals.

“We’re proud to be part of the Matrix Service Company family,” said Mark Fritz, division manager for Matrix Service in Western Canada. “It provides our customers with access to complete lifecycle solutions and expertise that might not otherwise be available. Being part of a company with revenues in excess of $1 billion also provides assurance that we’ll be here when they need us.”

Energy companies including TransCanada, Enbridge, Canadian Natural Resources and Suncor Energy have all called on Matrix Service for their depth of resources, safety, and quality project execution.

“As is the case elsewhere throughout North America, in Western Canada, we take pride in partnering with our customers to develop solutions that meet or exceed their expectations,” said Fritz.

Matrix Service Company’s subsidiaries perform FEED studies, designing, engineering, fabricating, and constructing crude and product terminals, as well as LNG and NGL terminals for export, storage and transportation fuel, process plants, and more.

They also provide decontamination, inspection, maintenance and repair, capital construction and complex turnaround services, including Fluid Catalytic Cracking and Coker units, for refineries coast-to-coast.

And across the entire oil and gas value chain, the company’s industrial cleaning division provides advanced chemical cleaning, tank cleaning, waste characterization, waste minimization, pre-commissioning cleaning, decommissioning cleaning, hydro-excavation for construction and hands-free hydro-blasting.

Matrix Service Company is headquartered in Tulsa, Okla. with subsidiary offices throughout the U.S. and Canada, including its Western Canada offices in Calgary, Edmonton and Leduc, as well as in Sydney, Australia, and Seoul, South Korea.
