Owner/Operator Tyler Prokopetz, or more widely known as “Skinny” has been serving the oil, gas, and construction industries since 2003. After moving from Saskatchewan at the age of 17, Skinny started his career operating equipment in the Peace Country of Northern Alberta. He quickly obtained his class one, began operating winch tractors, and rapidly advancing into a bed truck. He spent a great deal of time moving rigs including the derrick all over Northern Alberta and BC. Skinny became very experienced with hauling wide (16’), long (130’), and heavy loads. He continued on to heavy hauling and gained experience with all different wheel set ups, from 48 to 192 wheels. As a heavy hauler, Skinny hauled loads that were 25’ wide and 25’ high and gained experience in steering trailers. During his heavy hauling career Skinny has obtained a great deal of experience being the pull or push truck.
After moving to Okotoks in 2013, Skinny and his wife Sam decided to start his own piloting business to provide companies with experienced pilot truck operators. Our companies goal is to assist Class 1 drivers with hauling over dimensional loads safely to their destinations. Skinny’s Oilfield Service Ltd. is an incorporated business with the ability to operate across Canada and the USA. We look forward to working with you in the near future.
