About Us

History Prairie Companies was founded in 2011 by Patrick Hughes. Over the years, Prairie has survived the oil boom and grew a thriving business. In 2015, we expanded into the Powder River Basin of Casper, WY. We launched our water business in 2018 and started hauling in the Delaware Basin down in Orla, TX. Today, Prairie is the oil field hauling and logistics leader in the basins where we operate.

PRIORITY #1

Around here, safety comes first. We believe in doing the job right and getting each and every one of our drivers home to their families after every haul. And it’s not just the words, we put this belief into action with rigorous training, accountability and weekly bonuses for drivers with a commitment to safety—not just for themselves, but everyone out on the roads.

PRAIRIE PRIDE

We’re not pencil-pushers or bureaucrats. We’re out on the roads doing the job that needs to be done. Everyone at Prairie takes pride in their work and aren’t scared to roll up their sleeves and get the job done right. We’re a team of independent, tough, hard-working do-ers who have the mettle to tackle a tough job. Whether it’s in the office, in the shop or out on the road, the team at Prairie are the kind of folks you can count on.

WHAT DRIVES US

We are the vital link between America’s energy producers and the consumers that rely on them. And when that many people are counting on you, you’ve got to do the job right. At Prairie, a promise made is a promise kept. So, we operate with the real-world knowledge earned over years out in the field. And we keep focusing on growth so our people and our customers know we’ll be here, hauling oil, for years to come.
