STONEHAVEN Energy Resources
stonehaven projects

Stonehaven Energy Resources' core group of seven and their dedicated group of sub-contractors have been involved in Commissioning and Starting-Up some of the largest energy projects in Canada over the last decade. Their roles ranged from hands-on field work to leading multi-disciplined teams in a management capacity. What that means for your project is that Stonehaven has been on the front lines of numerous projects, gaining the practical knowledge to deliver results where they count—in the field.
Below is a list of projects, both completed and active, in which the owners of Stonehaven have participated in or Stonehaven has been asked to supply resources to:
