Oil & Gas Fabric Buildings

Oil & Gas Buildings, Pipeline Fabrication Structures & Warehousing Facilities

Alaska Structures® — the world’s premiere fabric building manufacturer since 1975 — provides hundreds of rugged structures used in the worldwide oil & gas industry each year. Alaska Structures expertly engineers its pipeline enclosures, workforce housings and remote-site camp systems to 2012 IBC Building Code, ASCE/SEI 7, and AISC standards of design and construction.

Our tension membrane structures for the oil & gas industry are:

The GTX Series of gable truss buildings are Alaska Structures’ largest and most rugged fabric tension structures. Ranging from 16 feet to 150 feet wide and any length, GTX Series buildings are uniquely suited for use as warehouses and other large-scale applications.

The revolutionary Denali Series of fabric buildings and camp systems provide ideal shelter for offices, dormitories and hundreds of other uses. MTX Series buildings are uniquely suited for maintenance facilities and workshops.

Possible applications of Alaska Structures fabric buildings for the oil & gas industry include:

Alaska Structures offer incredible longevity because they’re 100 percent made in the USA from durable materials. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) fabrics and architectural support systems require little to no maintenance and can last for decades in any environment. Alaska Structures manufactures its framing systems using high-strength aluminum or galvanized steel.


Easy installation and incredible portability make Alaska Structures fabric buildings superior alternatives to wood, steel or brick-and-mortar structures. Our tension membrane structures also offer a wide range of other benefits, including:

  • Low-Cube Shipping
  • Field-Tested Designs
  • Custom Design Options
  • Clear-Span Interiors
  • Shorter Build Times
  • Lower Construction Costs
  • Project Management Services
  • Minimal Foundation Requirements
  • Secure Anchoring to Any Surface
  • Door and Window Packages
  • In-House Powder Coating
  • Logistics Support

Alaska Structures creates proven designs that can include translucent fabrics that allow in natural light and propriety insulation to any R-value of thermal resistance to reduce lighting, heating and cooling costs. We design oil & gas facilities to accommodate plug-and-play electrical systems, rugged environmental control units and HVAC systems.


Use Of Fabric Structures In Oil & Gas Exploration
Fabric Structures can be useful in all stages of oil & gas exploration operations and have several benefits for the oil & gas industry, including reduced costs, offering protection from the elements, portability, and limited foundation requirements.

Fabric Buildings for Oil & Gas, Mineral Exploration and Mining
The engineering and construction of Alaska Structures' fabric buildings provide the protection needed to keep oil, gas, and other mineral assets safe. Each structure's operating systems and portable capacity extends the applications for these fabric structures.

Alaska Structures Pipeline Enclosures Used Around the World
Civil, petroleum, and mining industries require specialized systems for protection of their assets. From pipeline welding enclosures to overland, portable, and bulk handling conveyors, these systems must perform to a high standard in any climate.

Frac-Sand Production Poised for Increase Despite Falling Oil Prices
The proppant industry is looking at annual production increases in the double digits, even while frac-sand prices rise. As production increases, suitable storage facilities will be necessary to protect and maintain quality throughout the transportation process.
