Fabric Buildings for Oil and Gas
Fabric buildings for oil and gas operations have been used for decades. The versatility for relocation and the lack of environmental disruption these facilities have are just two of the reasons fabric covered buildings are so popular in the oil and gas industry. However, many of the ShelterSolutions Norseman Structures designs for oil and gas are not made fully with fabric cladding. Many of our customers choose a hybrid option of fabric and steel cladding, or sometimes even choose a full steel clad building. At Norseman Structures, we have experience with all of these options and are happy to design a structure with whichever cladding works best for you.

Energy Industry Structures
What are some of the key factors customers look for when it comes to oil and gas fabric structures?
Relocatable – When planning for an oil and gas fabric structure on your site, it is possible this structure will need to move in the future. Once shovels hit the ground, your plans may change. This is why fabric buildings for oil and gas are so popular. Norseman Structures’ construction team can easily dismantle and re-install your oil and gas fabric structure within weeks.
Quick Construction – When planning facilities for a site, you want them to be functional as quickly as possible. In comparison to traditional structures, fabric buildings for oil and gas can be constructed and usable within weeks instead of months.
Limited Environmental Interference – We know how important it is to take care of the land you are operating on. Fabric buildings for oil and gas are environmentally friendly solutions as they do not require a poured concrete foundation. Oil and gas fabric structures are most commonly built on concrete blocks, screw piles, or wide flange ring beams to prevent ground disturbance. When the project is complete, our team can simply dismantle the building, foundation and all.
Insulation Values – Does your site require structures to be NECB compliant? No problem. Our oil and gas fabric structures are designed to meet NECB requirements.
Strength & Durability – Whether you need storage buildings in the oil field or you need a heavy duty truck shop with a bridge crane, our fabric buildings for oil and gas can handle your loads.
Protection Against Extreme Conditions
We create strong fabric buildings for oil and gas that can last a lifetime. Many of the sites our structures are on are in remote locations with extreme weather conditions. Our in-house engineering team designs buildings for oil and gas that handle Canada’s harshest wind and snow loads. In addition, the fabric on the buildings are warrantied for up to 20 years are inexpensive to replace when the time comes.
When it comes to oil and gas sites, entire teams consisting of ecologists, engineers, drillers, and construction crews need constant protection from extreme conditions. Our structures are equally effective in Canadian winter blizzards, and in hot deserts with strong, sandy winds.
