CALGARY, Alberta (PRWEB) December 08, 2020
Bravo Target Safety (BTS), a leading provider of industrial and oilfield emergency response and safety services, today commented on the energy services market in western Canada approximately nine months into the Covid-19 pandemic.
“The pandemic has been very challenging for the Canadian energy sector,” says Kevin O’Brien, CEO, Bravo Target Safety. “As a government-designated essential service, we have maintained operations throughout this period and will continue working in this capacity.”
“Regrettably, we have had to reduce overhead costs, including letting go of some good people. These tough decisions ensure that our business is on a solid financial footing and that we can withstand an extended period of reduced activity. Government support has been appreciated but we are not relying on it going forward. Looking toward 2021, we are reasonably optimistic about a gradual return to ‘normal’.”
“There have been signs of encouragement. For example, in recent months we completed more than 10 major industrial facility turnaround projects and deployed up to 400 people. These are large work sites – employing thousands of people in total. During this period, we reported zero positive cases of Covid-19. These numbers prove that we can maintain a safe work environment by strictly adhering to provincial health guidelines and implementing additional voluntary safety measures to remain virus-free.”
“Our dedicated employees are mostly from Western Canada – including First Nations – and a few from as far away as the Maritimes. We have been inspired by their energy. Our people want nothing more than to get back to work.”
“Unfortunately, we feel that wellsite support work will continue to be soft through the coming winter. But 2021 should be more ‘normal’ – a regular year for facility maintenance.”
“The number one message that we wish to share with our industry is simple: Bravo Target Safety is here to stay and we are here to support you,” concludes Mr. O’Brien.
