Chemco Access Matting in the Northwest Territories

All the way up in the Northwest Territories, our access matting team has successfully provided 212 truck loads carrying 17,500 access mats to Fort Simpson in the span of just 21 days. The mats are required for an 11 kilometer remote access, along with 2 drilling pads and an area to set up a remote camp. The objective of the project is to replace an aging section of pipe under the river. The remote access provides a solid surface for equipment to travel on with zero disturbance to the natural environment. For this project, all materials and equipment required had to be delivered in the winter utilizing local ice bridges/roads. Once the River was flowing in the spring, a portion of the matting had to be barged up river to reach the remote site. The project started March of this year with an anticipated completion this October.

Starting with an access matting inventory of only 15,000 mats in January 2017, our matting division has now grown to have over 65,000 mats, allowing us to handle high volume projects like this one.
