Marwest Utility Services Ltd. 

Founded in 1987, Marwest has become one of the largest gas utility services companies in the Interior of British Columbia. Like ROGA, Marwest is a 100% Indigenous-owned company with ventures in mining, energy, and transportation. The company operates throughout Western Canada and brings the experience and understanding of project delivery from both the owners’ and the contractors’ perspectives.

Marwest Utility Services is split into three main categories: distribution, pipeline integrity and replacement projects. Our company’s focus is directed at all phases of pipeline construction and maintenance, both PE and steel, and large and small diameter pipe.

Marwest’s Services Include:

  • Maintenance of natural gas utilities including urban and rural pipelines; 
  • Construction of high pressure natural gas and other pipelines up to 30" in diameter;
  • Line locates, hydro-vac services, directional drilling, sandblasting, epoxy coating and NACE Level 2 certified inspections; and
  • Road maintenance, excavation, and earthworks.

Marwest looks to build long term relationships with their customers by delivering the best service every time. When projects are unique and challenging Marwest's broad sector experience ensures that we can provide the best solution possible.

Marwest’s project managers and construction overhead teams bridge the interests of industry and local stakeholders. Marwest fosters participation in strategic alliances with indigenous communities for the delivery and execution of projects.

By upholding transparency and fostering a clear understanding of our stakeholders’ positions and Indigenous communities’ right to title, we strive to serve as a conduit for sustainable economic growth, while actively promoting economic participation, member employment and training, and supporting cultural preservation as well as reconciliation.

We are proud to have established partnership agreements with the following Indigenous communities, bringing with them a range of value-added benefits:

  • Whispering Pines / Clinton Indian Band

  • Nazko First Nation
