DALLAS, Sept. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Primoris Services Corporation (NASDAQ Global Select: PRIM) (“Primoris” or “Company”) today provided an update to the work being done by Rockford Corporation, part of the Pipeline and Underground segment, on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (“ACP”) project. With the decision by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”) to allow construction activities to resume on ACP, Rockford has resumed work on the project doing various activities in West Virginia and North Carolina. Winter weather is expected to curtail some activities in West Virginia later this year, but at this time, the Company anticipates that weather permitting, work in North Carolina will continue through the winter months.
Primoris estimates that during the five weeks impacted by the FERC stop work order, revenue on ACP was roughly $35 million less than originally planned. It remains to be seen how much of the work can be accelerated during the 4th quarter of 2018.
Founded in 1960, Primoris, through various subsidiaries, has grown to become one of the largest publicly traded specialty construction and infrastructure companies in the United States. Serving diverse end-markets, Primoris provides a wide range of construction, fabrication, maintenance, replacement, water and wastewater, and engineering services to major public utilities, petrochemical companies, energy companies, municipalities, state departments of transportation, and other customers. Growing both organically and through acquisitions, the Company’s national footprint now extends nearly nationwide and into Canada. For additional information, please visit www.prim.com.
