Sharptail was founded in the Edmonton Alberta area, with the focus on Oil & Gas visual inspections.


The company was purchased by the current ownership group, who have focused the company on organizational & process excellence.


Sharptail acquired BRIAS Integrity in Wainwright, Alberta. This created geographic expansion, as well as diversification into tank inspections and jurisdictional inspections.


The company signed a cooperation agreement with the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation to jointly pursue business with Backwoods Energy Services. Our first award was Turnaround Work in the fall of 2023.

Sharptail expanded into Grande Prairie Alberta with a local office to service clients in the Peace Region and Northeast BC.
