In order to further improve its commitment to the region and ensure the overall success of the project, Rigstar claims that it is planning to open numerous remote field offices along the route, including its’ principal Service Centre in Prince George, B.C.

Daniel Grisdale, Rigstar’s President and CEO, said: “The Rigstar team is excited about the opportunity to work closely with CGL, the prime contractors, the first-class camp providers and the local and First Nation communities for the duration of the project.
