Prairie Companies was founded in 2011 by Patrick Hughes. Over the years, Prairie has survived the oil booms and busts to grow 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 in Orla, TX. In 2022 we moved our Delaware Basin operation to Artesia, NM to further service the needs of our customers in the Permian Basin and in 2023 added operations in the Uintah Basin. Today, Prairie Field Services continues to be a growing leader in the logistics and transportation industry.
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.
We are the vital link between America’s energy producers, freight shippers 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 over the road. And we keep focusing on growth so our people and our customers know we’ll be here, hauling oil and freight, for years to come.
Prairie Companies operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in some of America’s most important and productive energy-producing regions: Wyoming’s Powder River Basin and the southwest region’s Delaware Basin.
These are places that balance a striking beauty with rugged conditions. Our love of the land where we work and live makes us keenly aware of our environmental responsibility. Our operations are structured to minimize impact on this land.
