As part of the MagTec
asset acquisition, Delta Leasing takes ownership of 350 equipment assets of MagTec
, an 8,000-square-foot Prudhoe Bay shop facility, and the current MagTec
customer leases on the equipment.
MagTec Alaska LLC is one of the providers of temporary facilities in Greater Prudhoe Bay; in fact, relocatable units are their specialty.
After MagTec matches the client's parameters, expectations, and ultimate location with a portable facility, the next step is timing.
"Once the ice road or ice pad is prepped and ready, along comes the carrier--such as Cruz, Peak, AFC [Alaska Frontier Constructors], CH2M Hill--who come pick up the units from MagTec's Deadhorse base and transport them to the required site.
There's dirt work and camps that are set up to support environmental impact studies for future development." MagTec performs the same services as for winter camps--determining client needs and matching camp structure type, arranging mobilization to the site, and even providing catering/housekeeping services.
The MagTec permanent camp and service center in Deadhorse are modular units that sit on pilings.
MagTec has been providing portable buildings and associated services for six years--and they've been building on that experience.
As a full-service company that provides equipment rental and project support to companies operating in the Cook Inlet and North Slope oil fields, MagTec has found its niche by taking a proactive approach to customer service.
Beyond the traditional oil field equipment rentals such as portable heaters, generators, light plants, man lifts and zoom booms, MagTec provides a wide range of specialized portable buildings and fit-for-purpose job site buildings and equipment.
Growth for MagTec took a significant upswing as business development and operations on the North Slope increased.
"Our camps division is independently operated by MagTec," explains Roger Wilson.
When that equipment requires servicing or repair, MagTec's experienced staff is available on site in Deadhorse and across the North Slope to provide fast response, enabling companies to get back to their operations quickly, safely and efficiently, according to Roger Wilson, who added: "We have a fulltime field mechanic who is stationed in Oliktok who services MagTec equipment on lease for the drilling programs in progress on the ice."
