Prairie Field Services is looking for people who are in it for the long haul


Prairie Field Services offers high-paying, sustainable and satisfying careers for the dedicated driver.

The oil and gas industry can be a volatile place for hardworking men and women looking for a sustainable, satisfying career. The Powder River Basin hasn’t been immune to this volatility and the people working in it have faced real exhaustion trying to ride the ‘boom or bust’ waves of the industry for the last several years. Luckily for experienced haulers and newcomers alike, Prairie Field Services provides a variety of exciting hauling careers that likely fit any one individual’s unique needs.

Founded in 2011 by Patrick Hughes, Prairie Field Services (PFS) started its journey in the Bakken oilfield of North Dakota. In 2015, they expanded into the Powder River Basin of Casper, Wyoming, where the majority of their operations are still based. Then, in 2018, PFS saw continued growth as they opened a produced water hauling division out of Casper as well as crude hauling operations in Orla, Texas. In 2020, the company again expanded their portfolio by opening an Over-The-Road division with over a dozen units operating nationwide today.  

Prairie’s ability to grow and thrive over the last decade can be traced back to its company values being focused on employees and customers.

With a “WE DO” attitude, those values are:

  • Work hard with enthusiasm
  • Employee support ensures customer success
  • Do the right thing
  • One team, safety focused

Prairie prides itself by their catchphrase of “Hauling…done right.” With a leadership team that never puts profitability over safety, PFS drivers are supported in their careers with a foundation built on each individual’s well-being. With a robust in-house training program, even new, less experienced drivers can join a team that invests in the employee’s success from their first day.

It is this same commitment that has enabled PFS to garner long-term, strategic relationships with its customers. These customer relationships provide stable careers for PFS’s some 140+ employees. 

For the owner–operator with the same “WE DO” values, Prairie also has a network of third-party haulers they partner with for some of their customers’ crude hauling needs.

If you’re a driver and you value the same things PFS does, you might also wonder, “Why is hauling for Prairie the right fit for me?” Prairie has one of the best total compensation packages in the industry, including:

  • High base pay
  • Significant sign-on bonus
  • An $800 monthly ‘Do The Right Thing’ bonus
  • A tiered retention bonus up to $8,000 annually
  • Company-paid uniforms
  • A great benefits package including:
    • Medical
    • Dental
    • Vision
    • 401K with company matching
    • Short and long-term disability
    • Company-paid life insurance

The average crude hauler at PFS made $95,000 in 2021, while the top hauler earned a whopping $141,362!

Crude and production water hauling careers are mainly local based, so drivers are home almost every night.

PFS also has a fully functioning repair and maintenance shop in Casper, Wyoming that offers a tiered career path for mechanics and technicians of all experience levels.

With the rebound and future positive outlook in the oil and gas industry, along with the new opportunities for over-the-road drivers, there’s never been a better time to start a new career, and there’s no better place to start that exciting career than with the hardworking team at Prairie Field Services.
