Quanta Expands Canadian Mainline Pipeline Services

Posted on

Quanta Services Inc. has acquired the business of Banister Pipelines Corp., a Canadian mainline pipeline construction and maintenance services contractor based in Nisku, Alberta. The acquisition expands Quanta’s Canadian mainline pipeline services offering across Canada and provides Banister’s customer base with access to Quanta’s energy infrastructure resources.
  “We anticipate unprecedented levels of investment in pipeline and related infrastructure to occur in Canada over the next several years, driven by the development of the Canadian oil sands and unconventional shale formations. Banister’s operations significantly enhance our ability to provide pipeline infrastructure solutions to our customers,” said Jim O’Neil, president and CEO of Quanta Services.
  As a Quanta company, the business will operate under the name Banister Pipelines Constructors Corp. The company is expected to generate $350 million in revenue for 2015.
