Hurricane Harvey has brought catastrophic flooding to the state of Texas and Louisiana with a state of emergency being declared in both areas. Currently, all OTS employees are accounted for are presently safe. The response from volunteers and first responders has been incredible – it makes us proud to be working in the USA with such dedicated people. OTS is committed to providing help in any way we can for the local communities we work in.
Congratulations to our OTS KSPC Team
OTS has been awarded the Project Safety Contractor of the Month Award for K+S Potash Canada’s (KSPC) potash handling and storage facility located at Pacific Coast Terminals (PCT) bulk handling terminal in Port Moody, BC.

We would like to extend congratulations to our KSPC OTS team on their commitment to safety and for the proactive use of our behavior observation program on site.
Growth of Houston, TX Office
Expanding into the United States is a core strategic component of growth and long-term success for OTS. Over the last year, OTS has successfully kicked off two projects in the US and has specifically been operating on two major projects in the state of Texas.
Projects are Becoming Paperless
We have undergone some recent changes in order to upgrade our service to clients and increase our efficiency for reporting. Technology is always advancing and we wanted to be part of impacting change for the commissioning industry. We are now utilizing Continuum Edge (CE) Completions Management System. We have now transitioned all of our completions data and have established processes to utilize CE on our new projects with significant reductions in paper usage.
Thank You to Our Team
A big thanks to the folks at OTS that worked hard in the hookup and commissioning of the Hebron Topsides in Bullarm, Newfoundland. As the Topsides readied for loadout from the pier we can be proud we played a role in such a great project!
OTS has always believed that being engaged with communities is the key to our business success. Promoting vibrant, caring, healthy communities create the best possible environment for the future. We know that our business activities impact communities through employment and investment in those communities. OTS is a proud supporter of a number of community events, volunteer opportunities, and non-for-profit organizations throughout Canada.
Partnering to Give Back
Recently we had the opportunity to partner with one of our clients, Agrium to raise funds for an outreach program in Borger, Texas. Agrium and OTS recently held a barbeque to raise funds for the Rainbow Room of Borger for a backpack and coat drive campaign. Dyer's BBQ, United Supermarket and The Plaza all assisted with donations for the cause. The BBQ served more than 100 people and raised $2000.00 through purchase and donations from participants. Agrium pledged to match the funds raised by the BBQ bringing the total to $4000.00.
Thank You to the Cape Breton Business Community
