Delta Constructors’ entry into the North Dakota oil boom started in 2012 when the company brought a small crew to the Bakken Shale to perform some electrical work. “There was a high demand for electricians,” says Rick Hyce, vice president of construction. “There were limited electrical resources. We were hooking up the well sites.” It didn’t take long for the company’s presence in North Dakota to grow.
The initial crew composed of a handful of workers and two trucks quickly burgeoned to more than 100 individuals, who performed electrical, mechanical and insulation services as well as installing pump jacks, tank batteries and treater units. It wasn’t long before the company tied in more than 80 well sites, Hyce recalls. Eventually, Delta Constructors had approximately 400 employees on rotation in North Dakota and more than 550 total, Hyce says.
