EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 5, 2012) - North American Energy Partners Inc. ("NAEP" or "the Company") (TSX:NOA) (NYSE:NOA) today announced that the Company has been awarded a five-year master services contract for the provision of civil mine support services at a new mine site near Fort McMurray, Alberta.
"We are very pleased to have been awarded this contract," said NAEP's Vice President of Oil Sands, Barry Palmer. "The scope of the new contract covers overburden removal, reclamation, mine services and civil support and maintenance. We plan to mobilize our equipment to site in November with activity levels expected to gradually ramp up over the winter, thereby enabling us to improve the utilization of our heavy equipment fleet. While there is typically no committed backlog associated with master services agreements, we anticipate generating annual revenues of $40 to $50 million under this new contract."
"This is another significant step in the right direction for the Company," added NAEP's President and CEO, Martin Ferron. "Since the outset of oil sands site preparation activities in the 1970's, we have been providing Heavy Construction and Mining services to every mine in the Fort McMurray area. This new important contract award extends our proud track-record of service and success. We are very gratified that another major customer has included us in their long-term plans."
