ESI Energy Services Inc.
ESI Energy Services Inc. ("ESI"¯ or the Company¯) was incorporated in August 2001 with a mandate to enter the oilfield service business in western Canada. The Company acquired Bowridge Resource Group ("Bowridge"¯) in November 2001. Bowridge's principal businesses were natural gas production testing and auxiliary power generation rentals. ESI acquired Ozzie's Pipeline Padder, Inc. ("Ozzie's"¯) from a financial distress situation in August 2003. The Company exited the oilfield service business in September 2009 in order to focus on the pipeline equipment rental business. Since taking over Ozzie's, the Company has restored Ozzie's to profitability and re-established its reputation as a premium supplier of Padding Machines to North American mainline pipeline contractors and US utility contractors. ESI's management successfully rebuilt the Ozzie's management team, developed an impressive in-house design and engineering capability, and up-graded the fleet of 32 aging, mainline Padding Machines to meet the highest industry standards of performance, quality assurance and health, safety and environment. Ozzie's also owns and operates a rental fleet of 18 mini-padding machines which are powered by Liebherr 632 and 634 track-powered loaders.
ESI employs approximately 40 employees, 8 of which are based in the Company's downtown Calgary, AB corporate offices. The service centers in Leduc and Phoenix employ teams of fully qualified and experienced service technicians. The Leduc service centre operates out of a 30,000 square foot office and shop complex situated on 12.9 acres of prime industrial land within 2 miles of the Edmonton International Airport. The Phoenix service centre operates out of a 29,400 square foot office and shop complex situated on 4.9 acres of light industrial land in west Phoenix. Both properties are Company owned.
Through our wholly-owned operating entities, Ozzie's Pipeline Padder of Canada ("Ozzie's Canada"¯) and Ozzie's Pipeline Padder, Inc. ("Ozzie's"¯) , our objective is to promote and improve quality assurance in the construction of pipelines in Canada through the use of pipeline trench mechanical backfill separation or pipeline padding. We are committed to encouraging pipeline owners and contractors to embrace mechanical backfill separation as a safe, economical and environmentally friendly technique in the construction of pipelines. Mechanical backfill separation is a simple, cost effective application that is guaranteed to contribute to improved pipeline integrity by eliminating rocks and hard materials from falling onto the pipeline during the backfill process and damaging the pipe coating and/or the pipe during construction. Mechanical backfill separation also facilitates backfill material compaction. The risk of leaky or damaged pipelines is minimal if the proper construction techniques are applied through-out the construction cycle. Mechanical backfill separation is just one of a number of steps in the process. Mechanical backfill separation machines need to be used in the construction of pipelines along with pipe coating, automated welding, welding joint scans, joint coating, etc. to ensure that Canadian pipelines are constructed to the highest possible standards of quality assurance and safety.
