Doyon Remote Facilities & Services (DRFS), LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Doyon, Limited, recently moved a brand new camp from Fairbanks to Nenana in preparation for a drilling project in the Nenana Basin this summer.
Doyon Camp Orie, named in honor of Doyon’s former president and current board member, Orie G. Williams of Nenana, was moved to its new location in March 2016. Newly constructed in early 2016, Doyon Camp Orie will make Nenana its first operating location. DRFS began with just one camp in 2012, Doyon Camp Sackett on 12-Acre Pad near Oliktok Point in Kuparuk. Today, Doyon Camp Orie makes the eighth camp in the DRFS fleet.
The move from Fairbanks to Nenana began on March 17 and ended with all units in Nenana on March 19. The camp consists of 21 skid-mounted units, ranging from 11’10”x32’ to 11’10”x60’. All together, the camp consists of 23 double occupancy rooms, 16 single occupancy rooms, office and conference space, a recreational exercise room, and residential and commercial utilities.
Doyon Camp Orie will serve as a temporary home to the crews for the Toghotthele #1 project, an oil and gas exploration effort in the Nenana Basin.
“We are all very excited to have Doyon Camp Orie on the Toghotthele #1 project this summer season,” said Mariah Pitka-Jenkins, DRFS senior vice president and general manager. “Doyon Camp Orie is our most efficient, modern camp with a list of amenities you wouldn’t typically find in a remote mobile facility. The creativity and innovation that went into the design and build of Doyon Camp Orie was a huge success. A lot of time and planning goes into moving the units over the ice in the winter months and our team did an amazing job with the safe and timely mobilization of Doyon Camp Orie.”
