BAR Engineering: supporting Canada’s oil & gas sector while building strong communities

Building cities and building Canada’s oil and gas sector seem like two very different challenges, but for an engineer it’s all about working the problem. The numbers don’t lie and neither do the results. That’s why BAR Engineering always builds in long-term maintenance strategies at the beginning of a project regardless if it’s a pipeline or a sewer line. It’s just one of the things one learns after forty years in the business, and that isn’t going to change.

What has changed over the last four decades is their company. Growing from just three engineers to a team of over 60 highly trained individuals specializing in multi-disciplinary engineering for municipalities and Western Canada’s energy sector. 

“We stay grounded by working out of the small communities that make Western Canada such a great place to live. By keeping one foot in Lloydminster and the other in the Okanagan, we are able to provide municipalities and the energy sector with a diverse set of engineering services that are unique to communities that support Canada’s energy sector,” explains BAR’s Chief Administrative Officer, Kent Smith, P. Eng.

Understanding this complex relationship between industry and municipalities is what makes BAR Engineering different from most firms. No matter if it’s working with Husky in the Lloydminster area at one of their thermal facilities, or the direct river intake, or helping them in Winnipeg expand an asphalt refinery, BAR understands what it takes to move a project from conceptual design all the way through to commissioning, start-up, and beyond. 

“Our clients don’t take the size of their projects for granted and neither do we. That’s why we structured, and have proven, to efficiently handle projects that range in size and scope. From the management of small change projects to $150M+ oil & gas initiatives. We have a proven track record when it comes to everything from building thermal facilities to designing pipelines and raw water facilities,” says BAR’s Director of Energy, Bart Redden, P. Eng

Perhaps their greatest achievement is the impact they are able to make within the communities they serve. 

“We are proud to contribute to the communities we do business in by supporting various organizations like local minor hockey associations, and the Lloydminster Region Health Foundation. And we are excited to continue supporting the work that energy leaders like Husky and Cenovus do which help to strengthen Western Canadian families,” says Redden.

We’re energy focused

BAR Engineering was born out of a need for local, oil & gas expertise and after 40 years of serving industry leaders such as Husky Energy, Murphy Oil, and Encana (to name a few), we’ve earned the reputation of being Lloydminsiter’s engineering firm of choice for the energy sector.
