Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Prolink Fabrication Ltd. is a comprehensive enterprise. The company provides numerous products and a full range of services to energy focused customers. The client list includes Canadian and international oil and gas, heavy oil, oil sands and mining industries. With its all-embracing approach, Prolink Fabrication delivers end-to-end solutions that enable the start and subsequent completion of projects in a seamless fashion.
This is a fascinating story about a robust enterprise that has made its presence strongly felt in a relatively short time. The company was established in 2005 and now records annual revenues of more than $10 million. Its more than 50 employees are led by President and Chief Executive Officer Wade Fleury, who has more than 30 years of oilfield experience. He served 15 of those years in a supervisory capacity. Prior to his current position, Fleury was vice president-International Operations and Project Execution for Tarpon Energy Services, which is Prolink’s parent company. Tarpon Energy Services, a private company established in 2003, and also headquartered in Calgary, employs about 1,400 people and boasts annual revenues in the range of more than $200 million.

Prolink Fabrication designs and manufactures oil and gas processing equipment for operations residing between the wellhead and the pipeline. It’s a turnkey enterprise – with its full complement of mechanical, structural, electrical, instrumentation and control disciplines, it can provide complete and customized packages and processing equipment. Its extensive library of design standards makes it a “go to” company for major industry players.

As far as customization, Prolink – as its name implies – can capably fabricate equipment from a customer’s supplied prescriptive design. Also, as the company relates, it can offer a fit for a purpose solution developed from a functional specification that deploys proven industry processes. This assures clients an optimal level of quality, as well as cost control – all the while adhering to a customer’s schedule.

Though established in 2005, the company has a heritage of more than 20 years of experience and expertise. Offerings range from the basic metering packages to the far more complex processing equipment. Notably, all of its output is fabricated to the requirements established by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, American National Standards Institute, CSI and project-specific international quality assurance and control specifications – whatever is required.

The products that Prolink Fabrication designs, engineers and produces include the following process equipment for applications related to oil, gas and water:

  • Inlet manifolds;
  • Separators;
  • Indirect and Direct Heaters;
  • Dehydrators;
  • Pressure piping;
  • Pump packages;
  • Water injection systems;
  • Metering skids.

Also, Prolink Fabrication is a leading provider of services – again for domestic and international customers that seek a seamless execution of projects. The wide-ranging service menu includes:

  • Project management;
  • Manufacturing;
  • Cost control and scheduling;
  • Planning and design coordination;
  • Inspection and test planning;
  • Quality assurance and quality control;
  • After sales service and support;
  • Commissioning and field service;
  • Equipment refurbishing;
  • Engineering and product development.

As Prolink Fabrication deals with industries that drive energy resources from the ground, the company takes its social responsibility quite seriously. This is a company that has an almost obsessive commitment to the preservation of the environment. It focuses its efforts on the most creative and effective strategies that not only meet but exceed industry regulations and best practices.

The company’s morality also extends to its employees. Prolink Fabrication strives to create the safest work environment. Indeed, its self-defined goals are quite stringent, as it is dedicated to ensuring the well being of its workforce. After all, its employees are the valuable resource that contributed to the company’s success.

Goals related to the environment, health and safety and – of course – product and service quality, are the cornerstone of this company that developed a culture that embraces continuous improvement.
