ABOUT US

About Stealth Oilfield Inspections Ltd.

Stealth oil field inspections LTD was formed and incorporated September 27, 2000 in Red Deer, Alberta, by Gerry Der and Dennis Costen. Having worked for Georay inspections for 18 years, Gerry brought to the table a wealth of inspection knowledge and experience. Similarly, Dennis had worked for Georay and Tuboscope for 2 1/2 years, as well as working for CE Franklin for 20 years in management. It was an awesome combination.

The company's first day of business was November 1, 2000 and has been going strong ever since. After the first two months of business, a second inspection truck was added along with another inspection operator. A third inspection truck quickly follow to join in the other two by mid 2001. Within the first year of operation a total of three inspection trucks were operating and doing a variety of inspections for several service companies in Red Deer. At that time, a total of six employees were employed by Stealth. 

After continued growth and improvement in the next couple of years, the management at Stealth decided to diversify and offer wellhead tubing inspections. In August 2004 Michael Walliser or added his special expertise to the company by joining the owners, Gerry Der and Dennis Costen as a partner. Michael has been in the oil field industry for the previous 28 years. First with Franklin Supply for 14 years then subsequently with Majestic Oil Tools, which was bought out by Smith International. This branch of the company began with only two wellhead inspection trucks, still based out of Red Deer. Shortly thereafter a shop in Drayton Valley was opened up with initially one, and then a second truck, servicing that area. A third well head tubing inspection truck was also added to the Red Deer branch to accommodate the growing demand for the services there. As of present we operate a total of four wellhead tubing inspection trucks out of Red Deer, and two out of Drayton Valley. The addition of the new owner, the new division, and the new branch office, greatly assisted in the growth of this young business.

Both sides of the business continue to do well and therefore a decision was made to add a branch in Grande Prairie. It seemed a prudent move as the demand grew to carry out inspections on drilling rigs in that area, along with requests from companies to perform inspections on their downhole tools and rental equipment.

With the challenge of finding qualified personnel, the continued partnership itself made an agreement of purchase Enerspec Inspections LTD, which had been owned and operated by Rush McEachern, in March 2013. As a result, we have three inspection trucks servicing the Grande Prairie, Alberta and NE British Columbia area, along with those already present in Drayton Valley and Red Deer. The company has grown now to where we have 26 employees and 14 inspection trucks. Many of our employees have multiple years of experience, totaling in excess of 130 years in the inspection business. Having had a safety program in place from the beginning of our business, Stealth is a very safety conscious company and we have held our COR Safety Certificate since 2001. We are also members of ISNetworld, Comply Works, and are on most major oil companies approved list.

Stealth Oilfield inspections LTD is a member in good standing with IPIA (International Pipe Inspectors Association) and many of our employees have taken courses provided by them specializing in the oilfield industry. From a small beginning, Stealth Oilfield Inspections LTD has grown to a company that performs inspections all over western Canada and it continues to flourish as a leader in both safety and high standards in the oil field inspecting business.
