Paradox Access Solutions is bringing technology developed by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers to the Saskatchewan oil patch.
PRS-Neoweb is used to engineer roads over formerly inaccessible terrain, and it will remain stable in severe weather conditions, making it perfect for Saskatchewan’s climate. This is the first time Paradox Access Solutions has had the opportunity to show how their product can get oil and gas producers to their locations, while reducing the environmental impact.
“Paradox is tackling the problem of how to get a local oil and gas client into its location near Stoughton,” said president and CEO Marc Breault. “The site development has repeatedly required conventional matting and many loads of aggregate.
“That’s where Paradox comes in. We are recognized as specialists in getting in to sites when traditional road building just won’t work.”
In recent years, PRS-Neoweb has been gaining recognition in the petroleum industry for its low environmental impact and economic benefits that reduce capital and long-term maintenance costs. It can be removed when no longer needed, and the environment can be restored to its original state.
Access construction using PRS-Neoweb reduces the consumption of raw materials such as wood, carbon fuels and aggregate, and it has no environmental impact, which greatly reduces the corporate carbon footprint.
Paradox Access Solutions has successfully completed PRS-Neoweb projects throughout Western Canada for clients in a variety of sectors, and has assembled a team which includes an engineering department who specializes in designing and engineering projects using the Geocell technology.
Paradox Access Solutions specializes in access solutions such as conventional matting, but it is always looking for new innovative, economical and environmentally friendly solutions. Paradox has a yard near Stoughton for conventional matting, and its work in the region will be the first installation of its PRS-Neoweb product in the province.
