Lynden, which has support to Alaska oil and gas customers for decades, has created a new Lynden business, Lynden Oilfield Services (LOIL), to specifically serve customers on the North Slope of Alaska's Prudhoe Bay oil fields. A division of Alaska West Express, Lynden Oilfield Services provides support for oilfield exploration and production and transportation and logistics solutions to the companies working to redevelop Alaska's existing oil and gas resources.
"Dependable transportation and logistics are critical to the growing activity on the North Slope," says Scott Hicks, Alaska West Express president. "Through our family of companies Lynden Oilfield Services provides multi-modal air, sea and land opportunities and heavy-haul options for drilling contractors, chemical suppliers, camp support, construction, and all types of activity on and off the road system throughout the North Slope and offshore Alaska."
Based in Deadhorse, Lynden Oilfield Services offers in-field logistical services for Prudhoe Bay and all other North Slope oil fields. Its new 15-acre facility includes storage for supplies like pipe and bulk materials, a cross-dock operation, and a full-service maintenance shop and mechanics.
"We have intermodal capability and a 90,000-pound-capacity forklift with all attachments for containers, intermodal tanks and support flats," Hicks explains. "We also offer trans-loading and offloading capabilities including ISO tanks and containers."
Same-day field hauling and intra-field hauling of water, fuel and bulk liquids to various worksites on the North Slope will also be a focus.
The Lynden family of companies' combined capabilities include shipping to Alaska, truckload and less-than-truckload transportation, barge service to Hawaii and Alaska, charter barges, worldwide air and ocean forwarding, third-party logistics, trade show shipping, intermodal bulk chemical hauls, scheduled and chartered Hercules L-382 cargo aircraft, and multi-modal logistics.
