Trimac Transportation, a provider of bulk transportation and logistics services, has acquired Jacknife Oilfield Services.
Trimac said the strategic move further solidifies its position as a market leader in fluid hauling, particularly in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin.
Founded in 1997 and based in Bonnyville, Alberta, Jacknife Oilfield Services has established itself as a top-tier fluid transportation company specialising in heavy crude and oilfield hauling.
The company’s operations initially focused on servicing oil and gas companies in the Lakeland Region of Northeastern Alberta, and it has since grown exponentially to become a key player in the industry.
With a workforce of 154 employees, including owner-operators and skilled mechanics, Jacknife has built strong indigenous relationships and serves numerous blue-chip customers.
Jacknife’s primary service line focuses on fluid hauling, encompassing the transportation of fluids to and from well sites. Its expertise includes in-field transfers, pumping water off land and disposal, handling produced water, transporting fresh water, and facilitating flood ups.
In addition, the company offers mobile mechanic repairs, operates a Commercial Vehicle Inspection Programme facility, and provides general maintenance and repair services for light and heavy-duty trucks and trailers.
With operations spanning Bonnyville, Cold Lake, Lloydminster, North Battleford, Lac La Biche, St. Paul, Conklin, and throughout the Lakeland and Fort McMurray area, Jacknife has been a trusted partner of the largest oil and gas producers in the Lakeland Region for over 25 years.
