BEHR Energy Services
Calgary-based Behr Energy Services Ltd. started as an oil service company but, while that is still part of the business, the consultancy firm has since branched into emergency and risk management. Over the past ten years, growth in the industrial sector has been significant, and as of a few years ago, Behr has entered into the municipal arena. Business in Focus spoke with company President Todd Wilson to find out more.
Behr started on the operations side of the oil and gas sector, providing engineering services and completion programs. As part of this, it dealt with well site supervision and regulatory compliance issues. At the time, the company had a strong background in sour gas operations. Back in 1984, the Energy Resources Conservation Board (now called the Alberta Energy Regulator) came out with regulations in response to blowouts that had occurred in some previous years from sour wells.
