Jarrett McKean – Chief Operating Officer
Jarrett originally started off as a ticketed B-pressure welder, and with over 15 plus years in oilfield construction/fabrication experience. He started his apprenticeship in 1999 in a shop environment building flare stacks, which helped him to build a comprehensive background in stainless steel welding. Jarrett’s hard work and expertise began to show during his apprenticeship where he won multiple awards through Skills Canada. He then completed his journeyman / B-pressure certification later in 2001.
Over the years Jarrett has gathered extensive experience in both pressure piping and structural fabrication, small bore and large bore, for both facility and pipeline construction which include projects such as compressor and dehy installations, heavy oil facilities, refrigeration plants, heavy oil well pads, pipeline risers / tie ins and tank farm set ups throughout Alberta, BC and Saskatchewan. In 2004 he began expanding his own business and equipment lineup by purchasing and setting up multiple welding rigs where he employed and trained apprentices from start to finish with their own B-pressure designation.
In 2009 Jarrett would jump into the start-up and partnership of Vise Energy Services Ltd. Since then, he has taken a leading role in the field and shop management, contract review, scheduleing and procurement of all projects Vise gets its hands on. Jarrett continues to use his extensive field experience and overall knowledge of the oilfield industry to make Vise Energy Services Ltd. one of the most innovative companies’ in the oil and gas industry while ensuring their quality of work and safety are held to the highest standards.
