Subsidiary Update: DUS Security Division Expands in Texas
On June 2013, the Doyon Universal Services (DUS) security division began their first project in Carrizo Springs, Texas with Anadarko Petroleum, in an area known as the Maverick Basin in the Eagle Ford Shale. DUS currently operates 14 access control posts on ranch leases and critical infrastructure sites for Anadarko.
In February 2016, DUS renewed their security contract with Anadarko for another three years and took over as the only security provider for Anadarko in the Maverick Basin. This growth will add approximately 30 more security officers and expand DUS’ footprint in the Eagle Ford until March 2019.
Anadarko Petroleum is also making some changes in this expansion, by investing in technology to improve physical safety measures. These investments include the use of electronic gates, which will be installed at posts with minimum traffic, and card reader scanning systems for expedited access and egress. Although this technology may reduce the number of officers at post, a physical security presence on lease property remains a top priority for Anadarko. As a result, DUS will see a more robust roving patrol system in the Maverick Basin.
“We are very proud of our men and women who are the face of DUS in Texas,” said Cal Kaiser, DUS Texas security director. “The success and growth in south Texas is a direct reflection of the Anadarko project. We value our partnership with Anadarko and we are very excited about our future and growth potential in the lower 48 because of this project.”
