Pipeline Brochure 



McCaw’s Drilling & Blasting Ltd. has been actively involved in the oilfield industry performing drill/blast operations, piling and anchor projects since the 1970’s. Specifically we have been an industry leader in pipeline ditching projects specializing in terrain that is remote and rugged. McCaw’s Drilling is proud of the reputation earned in Western Canada for the professional drilling & blasting services within the oilfield and construction industry. Customer satisfaction, maintaining the highest possible standards of safety, and production are the backbone of our achievements. To operate our fleet, an experienced crew is required and we have that in managers, supervisors and operators. Our top level supervisor and operator team has a cumulative experience of over 100 years between five members and that is all with McCaw’s Drilling. Another asset to our company is our commitment to a safe work environment. We have made it a priority to continually develop our safety program and comply with OH&S standards utilizing ISNetworld requirements. Maintaining our COR and participating in the WCB PIR program has continued to help our company sustain lower than industry standard rates.
