Arctic Directory: Canadian Mat Systems FRP raises drill platform

Canadian Mat Systems Inc. said May 29 that it is helping the oil and gas industry reduce its environmental footprint with the first Fiber Reinforced Raised Drill Platform.

The high-capacity composite RDP elevates an entire drilling operation above ground, eliminating impact to fragile ecosystems. The RDP’s unique design eliminates seasonal constraints and the cost of environmental reclamation. Re-usable and lightweight, RDP panels can be lifted by helicopter and are easily transported to remote areas. Platform panels can accommodate drilling rigs up to 1.5 million pounds and fully loaded tractor trailers. The unique corrosion- and chemica-resistant product, built with modular FRP panels on a steel structure, provides a durable work surface for oil and gas exploration. Canadian Mat Systems Inc. is a leading manufacturer of temporary structural foundation panels commonly called “Mats.” The panels are used to support operational activity in areas of low weight-bearing soil conditions.
