The company’s owner, Brandon Nichols, has more than 16 years in the oil and gas industry and 6 years in the piping industry. He has worked internationally for over 10 years. His experience in providing productive teams through difficult circumstances enables him to lead the company into a profitable position. He began work in the piping industry in 1995 and continued to work in the construction field until 2000 when he started his career in the oil and gas drilling with Transocean, then R&B Falcon. In 2016 the downturn in the oil industry resulted in the termination of the drilling rig he was working on. Brandon stayed on the rig to secure all the equipment and to stack the rig prior to being laid-off. He has since returned to the piping industry working for Specialty Welding Services / Turner Industries on plant turn arounds at Dow and Exxon in Baton Rouge. He joined Mohawk Field Services after completing the turnarounds on a new construction job in Texas. Most recently, Transocean rehired Brandon as a driller, a senior supervisor over drilling activities, for a long-term contract in Australia.

A fabricated pipe and pipe fitting shop welds piping components like pipe, elbows, flanges, reducers, tees, etc. for engineered piping systems to meet the clients design specifications. Pipe is cut to lengths specified in the provided isometric drawing and the desired fittings are installed to the angles of the specifications. The controlled environment of the shop reduces weather delays and helps to reduce the time required to assemble the spools. Shop prefabrication reduces field installation costs and increases quality of products.
