Sioux City, Iowa (PRWEB) July 10, 2012
Radius Steel Fabrication, a division of SOO Tractor, recently attended the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary to show its continued commitment towards manufacturing the best equipment for the Oil and Gas Industry.
The Global Petroleum Show is the meeting place for the oil & gas industry, combining a high-profile industry business and technical conference with a remarkable exhibition showcasing the newest innovations in the energy industry. The 2012 event in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, proved to be one of its largest events in almost 50 years. Over 60,000 oil and gas professionals and decision makers from around the globe attended, attesting to an overall improvement in the economy and within the industry.
Among the prominent keynotes, Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin discussed the Keystone XL pipeline project and stated that Americans were warming up to this potential pipeline that would carry crude oil to multiple U.S. destinations for refining. Ms. Fallin believes the pipeline would be advantageous for the U.S. and for Canada. The plan for the pipeline was initially rejected by the White House due to environmental concerns, but TransCanada Corporation, the Calgary-based company behind the Keystone proposal, is working to design a new ecologically-sensitive route.
Ida Covi, CEO of Radius Steel, shared her thoughts on the matter, “It is crucial to not only understand the types of equipment being used in the oil and gas industry, but to also be familiar with the innovative technology that’s available and being built into today’s pipelines to keep our environment safe.” Radius Steel’s expertise in a cross-industry range of steel fabrication allows the company to work with large projects such as these by providing durable equipment in a cost-effective and timely manner. Radius Steel has recently been engaged by Silent Drive, Inc., an innovative leader in air ride suspensions, to manufacture Lift Axle components for Silent Drive's product line being used in the Oil and Gas fields, amongst others. The lift axles increase the outer bridge of a truck or trailer so that substantial additional payload is allowed to be hauled. Larger payload equals greater revenue.
