Company History

Since our founding in 1977, our company has been providing oilfield construction services by delivering quality projects to our customers, safely and on budget.

Robert Heely started out as a welder working in the oil fields of central California. Demand for Robert’s services grew, and in 1977, he founded Robert Heely Construction, Inc. headquartered in Paso Robles, California. Over the years our operations expanded to cover almost every onshore oilfield in California.

In 2006, the company had grown to the point where additional senior leadership was needed. Therefore, Craig Bonna joined the company as a Partner, CEO, and President. The company was also renamed Robert Heely Construction, LP and branded as RHC. As we continued to grow, in 2014 we relocated our Headquarters to a larger facility Bakersfield, California that was more central to our customer’s core operations.

The company grew from initially providing field welding services to the fully integrated oilfield service provider it is today. Today the company provides a wide variety field and plant mechanical and maintenance, heavy civil, concrete and well abandonment services.

In 2014 due to customer demand, RHC started operations in Midland, Texas. Leveraging the operational excellence, policies, procedures and safety culture developed over the years from the California operations, RHC was quickly able to establish itself as a full-service provider of oilfield construction services to the Permian Basin. In addition to the oilfield services, RHC relocated its concrete batch plant from California to Midland to provide high-quality Ready Mix Concrete to the greater Midland area.

Today, RHC continues to grow its operations in California and Texas by delivering high-quality projects safely and cost efficiently.
