Founder and President, Preferred Energy
Preferred Energy founder and president Danton Moorhead started the energy services firm back in 2011 as the sole owner and operator driving around in a single company truck. His first foray into the energy business was in the Alberta oil sands, where he worked with an environmental outfit contracted by Nexen. He later returned home to southeastern Saskatchewan to begin a career in pipefitting. Today, the oilfield welding, construction and maintenance firm out of Stoughton, Saskatchewan, has a fleet of more than a dozen service trucks, several pieces of heavy equipment and a full-time staff of 35, many working out of Preferred Energy’s brand new 13,000 square foot welding facility.
