Pipe Logistics Contractor Opens New Houston Headquarters

March 2012, Vol. 67 No. 3

Since then, the company and its staff have been involved in the planning, offloading, stockpiling and stringing of pipeline projects with varying terrains and challenges throughout the U.S. and Canada. Many of their projects are done on a turnkey basis, coordinating rail, barge, stockpiling and stringing. The company has developed and built specially designed equipment that can handle almost any difficult terrain. All of Pe Ben’s equipment is company owned and 90 percent of its entire equipment fleet is less than four years old.

The company maintains a high quality safety record as it moves across public highways and roads. Frequently, all foremen and safety personnel visit Houston for comprehensive safety and operations training. Pe Ben is also heavily involved with its clients’ safety programs, meeting regularly with them on all projects.

Pe Ben has worked on projects for major oil and gas companies though its principal clients are major pipe mills. They have executed projects for all major U.S. and European mills. Pe Ben now has operations in Alberta, and British Columbia Canada, as well as Texas and North Dakota. A new heavy-haul division in Houston has recently been established, and is led by Tony Beffer. They are working with the mills and owning companies developing a bar code system that will track each joint of pipe once it leaves the mill and is delivered to the right-of-way.

At the close of 2011, Pe Ben USA completed 16 simultaneous stringing projects during the year, building on its commitment to safety, customer service and equipment reliability. Dale Mykyte’s operating philosophy is “to be invisible and anticipate the client’s needs, being proactive rather than reactive.”

Other key personnel include: Dustin Mykyte, president; Patti Martinez, CFO; Todd Phillips, vice president of business development; Blake Culp, vice president of operations; Brock Wilson, logistics coordinator; Tony Beffer, director of business development for heavy haul; and Bill Cunningham, safety director.
