Target on Target for another Modular Mancamp in the Bakken

April 23rd, 2014

Target Logistics, a division of Algeco Scotsman, which already operates a dozen modular mancamps in North Dakota for oilfield workers, recently received an almost $30 million contract to provide accommodations for hundreds more oilfield workers in ND over the next three years. Some energy companies that have operated their own workforce housing operations have experienced problems with undesirable activities among workers, but Target monitors their comings and goings during off hours, banning alcohol and overnight guests (including spouses) in the private rooms, according to wsj.com. With a one bedroom apartment in Williston, ND averaging $2,394 a month, out of range for most field employees, workers are willing to put up with the restrictions. Responding to the oil boom in the Bakken oilfield in ND and other energy rich sites, Target has grown from 15 employees doing $3.5 million in revenue in 2008 to 465 employees bringing in $164 million in 2013. The company has filled 5,300 beds in North American modular workforce housing, as MHProNews.com has learned. ##
