Use of Fabric Structures in Oil & Gas Exploration

Oil and gas operations can be very expensive. As the oil and gas prices drop, it can be hard to maintain a profit with such costly operations. It’s more important than ever to have cost-effective operations, and one way to do that is by using fabric buildings. Fabric buildings can withstand extreme weather and work for every stage of operations at a lower cost than traditional buildings. Fabric buildings have use during the search, well drilling, rig, and extraction stages to house equipment and workers on site. These buildings clearly can support all aspects of operations, similar to traditional buildings, with added cost and time savings.


One of the great benefits of using WeatherPort Shelters is that you can set up them up on any surface with minimal site prep. This allows businesses and hobbyists alike to use our structures to suit their needs. The design of our shelters is suitable for many foundation types and different purposes such as warehouses and sports facilities.
