ARCOLA - CEDA is a trucking company that has a presence across the country.
They have three locations in Saskatchewan, including one in Arcola. The others are in Estevan and Regina.
Bob Lawrence is the operations manager in Arcola, and he said CEDA bought and took over Gibson Energy, formerly know as Little Hawk, in May 2019.
They focus mainly on supplying specialty equipment to the southeast corner of the province in the oil sector, but they are not limited to this area alone.
In Arcola they presently operate 12 trucks, including hydrovac trucks. These trucks are equipped with a pump which is designed to suck liquids, sludge or slurries into a tank of the truck.
Water trucks and pressure trucks are also part of the fleet. Pressure trucks pump fluids at a high pressure into pipes or wellheads to thoroughly check and test for leaks.
Also on the lot are combo trucks, body job, vac trucks and steamer/boiler trucks. These trucks all play an important role in the oilfield works.
Another one is the wash truck.
Their main focus is specializing in turnaround which includes tank and vessel cleaning, vapour suppression, cannon washing and building washing.
This also includes the day-to-day jobs which consist of facility work, pipeline installation and construction builds.
The core values of CEDA are the safety of their people, the integrity and trust of their customers. They feel it is important to communicate with everyone involved and to take accountability for their work.
They have a 24-hour dispatch service for issues that may arise after hours, so they are always available to keep everyone safe and happy.
CEDA looks forward to serving the southeast for years to come.
