Northern Mat & Bridge has been a leader in supplying access solutions to the SAGD sector for many years. Access mats are used to build roads and large leases that allow easy and safe access to the project sites. The matting on these leases allow for much-needed space to set up and operate the numerous stages of drilling and production on a SAGD site.

Devon Jackfish

Location: Northern Alberta

Scope: Place access mats along steam lines to allow equipment to get through

Mission: Insure safe access to trucks to deliver pipe and insulation as well as access to the inspectors and welders to fuse pipe sections together

Results: Northern Mat & Bridge supplied and installed access matting along steam lines to allow a pile driver to stay on stable footing and hammer the piles. Multi well pads, inject steam into the ground and soften the crude below, so it can be pumped to the surface and delivered by above ground pipe to a processing plant, thus making the ground unstable.

SAGD has been a successful and expanding sector of the oil and gas business. Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage is an enhanced oil recovery technology used to extract bitumen from underground formations.

Rig mats are used under the rig's footprint for extra stability. The use of matting enables projects to run without interruption due to poor weather and unfavourable site conditions. The quicker the site is producing, the more productive it can become for energy companies.

At Northern Mat & Bridge we understand the importance of providing safe and timely delivery and installation of access products and solutions. It is our goal to provide the safest, most cost-effective solutions available today.
