Walking on water is not such a crazy idea to Newpark Mats & Integrated Services. The company, a subsidiary of Newpark Resources, makes composite mat systems (under the DuraBase brand) used to create temporary roads and walkways on wet, soft, and environmentally sensitive areas around drilling and construction sites. It also provides pipeline construction services. Newpark Mats & Integrated Services' pipeline crews test soils, lay mats, dig trenches, install pipe, and restore disturbed areas to pristine condition. The company also provides environmental remediation services, pit design, and well connection and maintenance.
SOLOCO was founded in 1960 with a mission of providing access to drilling sites and temporary roads in the Gulf Coast area of the US. In 1990 the company began to provide environmental services. – less
