CALGARY – March 25, 2014 – CCI Inc. today announced that it has joined the elite rank of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.

This prestigious national award program is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queens School Of Business and MacKay CEO Forums.

“CCI is tremendously proud to be among such a worthy field of Canadian business success stories,” said Dave Dupuis, Chief Operating Officer at CCI Inc. “We credit our talented pool of highly qualified technical people as the key to being able to deliver stellar results, project after project.”

By practicing a relentless focus on safety and employing state-of-the-art horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and other construction methods, CCI’s strong team of experts including engineers, geotechnical professionals, geologists, biologists, foresters, hydrologists and many other specialists have been able to maintain an ongoing 100% success rate.

“Over the past 21 years, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program has recognized the most innovative and Best Managed Companies in Canada. We are delighted to celebrate the accomplishments of CCI Inc.,” said John Hughes, National Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies and Managing Partner, Growth Enterprises, Deloitte.

Industry “Firsts”
CCI has developed and implemented some innovations that are “Firsts” in the oil and gas industry, including:

PIPE-360 – In response to client needs, CCI has developed the PIPE-360 Pipeline Review System to assist with current and future pipeline project planning projects – enabling companies to make more informed decisions. Concurrently, a mobile app is being created to enable any pipeline company to export their data into the app and perform similar analyses.

DIRECT PIPE® – Completion of the Design and First DIRECT PIPE® installation in Canada. Used successfully in Europe and other countries, this method combines the advantages of micro-tunneling and HDD technology and allows speedy, highly economic installation of pipelines – a design that save CCI clients time and money.

STRAIN GAUGES – CCI has developed the ability to monitor actual loads that the product pipe encounters during the installation (pull back) of a horizontal directional drilled crossing. This procedure gathers information on the product pipe stresses incurred to ensure that design and construction processes do not compromise the integrity of the product pipe.

ANNULAR PRESSURE MODEL – CCI is the leader of the implementation of this technology that has revolutionized the HDD industry by providing indications of ground integrity and enabling success rates to increase from 50% to 99%.

WELLPAD-360 – For wellpad and road planning projects, CCI’s WELLPAD-360 is an end-to-end, cost-effective solution that examines all factors and places the utmost importance on constructability and feasibility.
