North Star Petroleum expands footprint on North Slope
May 2, 2016
Saltchuk welcomes NANA Oilfield Services to the family!
Anchorage, AK – NANA Oilfield Services (NOSI) has become the newest member of the Saltchuk family of companies.
NOSI will operate as as a sister company to Delta Western, the leading distributor of petroleum products and lubricants in Alaska, under North Star Petroleum, the petroleum distribution unit of Saltchuk.
NOSI’s facilities in Deadhorse distribute jet A and B aviation fuel, diesel, heating fuels and gasoline as well as drilling fluids and potable water to camps all over the North Slope. The acquisition further diversifies and expands North Star Petroleum’s footprint in the state.
“We are very happy to have NOSI as well as Brad Osborne and his team join the Saltchuk family of companies,” said Brian Bogen, President and CEO of North Star Petroleum, “We currently serve the North Slope from Delta Western’s location in Fairbanks. Expanding services in Deadhorse is reflective of our long term commitment to the state of Alaska and our oil and gas customers.”
The purchase was completed on April 30, 2016. Leadership from North Star Petroleum and Saltchuk will travel to meet with NOSI’s 36 employees in Anchorage, Fairbanks and Deadhorse over the coming week.
“It’s a great fit. Saltchuk’s values and commitment to Alaska make me very confident that we have found a great home,” said Brad Osborne, President of NOSI. Osborne will stay on as President of the company. “We’ve got a long and exciting future ahead, I’m looking forward to being a part of the Saltchuk family.”
