Dale Posein, chief operating officer, constructors has been appointed the head of Ledcor’s pipeline and industrial construction groups, plus its Fort McMurray operations unit. He takes over the reins with the retirement of Bill Partington, who was with the company for 15 years.
These three long-standing Ledcor operating groups construct and maintain large diameter mainline energy pipelines, build and maintain complex industrial facilities, and service oil sands operations in Western Canada for numerous energy, pipeline, and natural resource companies.
“I look forward to leading Ledcor’s oil and gas focused teams, as we evolve to face the new challenges and opportunities that face the industry,” said Posein. “I especially look forward to working with our long-standing clients, our global partners and local suppliers to deliver world-class petroleum energy infrastructure for Canada that is safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable.”
His previous role was COO, pipeline, responsible for operations, project management, project leadership and project execution for all pipeline contracts. He is currently serving on the board of directors for the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association Foundation (CEPA) and sits on the CEPA Foundation Planning Committee.
Ledcor’s pipeline, industrial and Fort McMurray units build and maintain large diameter mainline energy pipelines and industrial facilities, as well as service oilsands operations in Western Canada.
“I am very pleased to announce this promotion of Dale Posein within our constructors group. He is a proven leader with over three decades of construction experience with Ledcor in road-building, mining, SAGDs, fibre optics, and pipeline,” said president Tom Lassu. “Dale has been a very effective project executive on many complex builds, especially as energy project design, engineering, and construction methods have become more complex, demanding, and scrutinized.”
