Proudly Serving The Oil Patch Since 1978


  • It All Started With A Truck

    In 1978 Mike and Craig Schnell saw the opportunity in a rapidly-expanding oil & gas industry and recognized how they would be a part of it. They bought a 1 ton truck and began providing services to operations in the oilfields around Alberta.

  • What’s in a name?

    In the spirit of Alberta’s early frontier pioneers, Mike and Craig realized they were among the mavericks working in a largely untamed land – and the company name sprung from that.

  • Next? A bigger truck, of course

    The demand for Maverick’s services soon outstripped the capacity of the original 1 ton truck. The Schnell brothers soon bought a larger truck capable of carrying more equipment – and a crew of three.

  • Geographic Expansion

    At a time when many in the oil industry were feeling nervous about the future, Mike took a calculated risk and expanded his operations to include Macklin, Saskatchewan. It would pay off, big time.  

  • Macklin, SK Becomes Home

    The headquarters moved to Macklin when work in that area began booming. When asked by a local banker what his business plan was, Mike stated simply that it was “Get to work!”

  • Provost Office Added

    With the success of operations in Macklin, the company expanded beyond just trucks, and began working out of a location in Provost, which would become the new headquarters.

  • Hello, Grande Prairie

    Increasing work in northwestern Alberta led to the opening of yet another field office, this time in Grande Prairie.

  • Expansion Across the Prairies

    After 35 years of operations in Alberta, Maverick expanded with the acquisition of the assets of Toro Projects, which also included assets in Southern Alberta. Maverick's corporate offices were set up in Calgary.

  • US Expansion

    Maverick expanded with the acquisition of Legion Rig Services in Colorado, with a primary focus on the the DJ Basin region of Colorado and the southwest region of Colorado.

  • Continued Success

    Maverick continues to deliver successful project execution to it's partners and looks forward to continued growth in the future.
