CPS Company Profile

The company was formed from the operations of Carson Pratt Services PNG and the expertise that has been developed since its inception. The company was effectively formed in 1974 and is still 100% nationally owned and operated in Papua New Guinea. Due to a consolidation in ownership the Company name change was effected in 2011 to Wild Cat Developments Ltd. In 2013 the company, along with its subsidiary, South West Air Ltd, was acquired by the Remington Group of companies. The companies have recently (2016) been acquired by Iaraguma Ltd and Wild Cat Developments Ltd. name has been changed to Construction & Procurement Services Ltd (CPS).

From its beginnings in hydrometric survey work, the company has grown to become a major force in oil-heli-rig construction, general field support services to the mining and petroleum industries, road, bridge and airport construction and maintenance and general civil engineering works.

CPS employs a permanent workforce in excess of 300 (and upward of 800 at any one time) with substantial resources including over 120 items of major plant. A significant factor in the company's long term success has been the Senior Management's experience and understanding of the difficulties inherent in remote area field operations within Papua New Guinea.

These operations include;

  • ROAD CONSTRUCTION, UPGRADING AND SEALING
  • BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION
  • AIRPORT UPGRADING/REPAIR WORKS, FENCING AND ASSOCIATED WORKS
  • DRILL AND BLAST OPERATIONS
  • QUARRY/CRUSHING OPERATIONS INCLUDING ROAD BASE AND AGGREGATE PRODUCTION
  • PIPELINE CONSTRUCTION
  • GENERAL CIVIL ENGINEERING WORKS
  • RIG SITE AND ACCESS ROAD CONSTRUCTION
  • CAMP CONSTRUCTION AND/OR SUPPLY AND OPERATION
  • LANDOWNER NEGOTIATIONS AND AGREEMENTS
  • PURCHASING FOR REMOTE OPERATIONS
  • LOGISTICAL SUPPORT
  • GEOLOGICAL TRAVERSE LINE CUTTING AND SURVEY
  • SEISMIC LINE CUTTING AND BRIDGING
  • SURVEY FOR RIG SITE POSITIONING
  • Given the vast experience the company has accumulated of PNG conditions, CPS has, by necessity, committed itself to a policy of sustained investment and self-sufficiency. To achieve this objective, it has diversified into associated infrastructure essential for the continued success of its primary business objectives and the continuing localization of positions.

    As a result, the company's field operations are underpinned by a proven and financially sound structure of support facilities and services. These include a training development program, fully equipped machine shop, carpentry, plumbing, electrical and fabrication workshops.

    The past 25 years have seen the company concentrating its operations on rig site construction. 117 sites have been successfully built for clients who include virtually every major oil company operating in PNG. In the past 12-15 years the company has become more involved in highway and bridge construction / maintenance and works of a civil engineering nature, particularly in remote locations.

    CPS also has the capability to take on design and construct projects and has formed associations with local design consultancies for this purpose.

    In addition to our commitment to training and employing national staff, including an Engineering Graduate Training Programme, CPS is proud of its donations to the local communities, whether it be by way of direct donations or sports sponsorship.

    It is this commitment to PNG and the development of available resources (labour as well as natural) which the company sees as its corporate responsibility.
