Featured Project: NOSI, Red Dog Mine
Project: Fuel purchasing
Company: NANA Oilfield Services, Inc. (NOSI)
Partner: Teck, Inc.
NANA Oilfield Services, Inc. (NOSI) assists Teck, Inc. – Alaska with the purchase of 18 million gallons a year, as well as all of the mine’s Chevron lubricants to keep machines in optimum running condition. The fuel purchasing delivery window at Red Dog Mine is short due to the usually icy conditions around the mine that prevent barges from delivering goods. NOSI organizes logistics and creates estimates for lubricant oil shipments. Once the barge arrives, NOSI loads the appropriate tanks that are shipped to Seattle, refilled and sent back to Red Dog Mine before the ice moves back in for the winter.
