The Baker Hughes Joint Facility in Minot, ND is a culmination of hard work and much patience. Located on the eastern most edge of the Bakken Shale this facility got underway just prior to the great floods of 2011 causing extensive delays. However; with the fast track schedule and well tuned design and construction teams the project was able to quickly gain momentum and turn a potential disaster into the latest and greatest oil field services facility within miles. The consolidation of Artificial Lift, Drilling Services, Bits, Chemicals and the area management creates a coexistence of the companies most highly technical divisions in one centralized location. In addition to the office building and workshop this 132,000 SF facility consists of an electronics laboratory, training, tool washing, indoor & outdoor chemical storage, specialized coating and spooling.
