Michels selected to build facilities on Keystone XL
Michels Corporation has been awarded a contract from TC Energy Corporation (TSX, NYSE: TRP) (TC Energy) to construct pipeline facilities on the Keystone XL Pipeline, directly putting hundreds of Americans to work this year on this important energy infrastructure project.
“As a family-owned and operated US-based company, Michels supports local economic growth,” said Pat Michels, President and CEO of Michels Corporation. “Construction of these Keystone XL Pipeline facilities will help support families and communities in Wisconsin and beyond, which is more important than ever during these uncertain times. In the long run, this project will provide the energy our country needs; during construction, it will allow us to provide a steady paycheck to our hard-working people and their families.”
Michels is responsible for the construction of eight pump stations in Montana, South Dakota, Oklahoma and Texas. Construction started in late June and is on schedule for completion in the first quarter of 2021. During peak construction, Michels Corporation will employ more than 350 people on the facilities projects.
Michels is a leading energy and infrastructure contractor with significant experience in the oil and gas industry.
“Michels is pleased to bring our absolute commitment to safety and quality to Keystone XL,” said Michels. “The facility stations will be built to the highest standards.”
“We are proud to partner with Michels, a company that shares our values of safety and quality and our commitment to building the safest pipeline ever built to the highest standards,” said Richard Prior, President of Keystone XL. “We are also eager to create jobs and fulfil our promise of putting thousands of Americans to work on Keystone XL.”
