"We'd like to share our gratitude for the continued support we receive from our Ponoka community."
Gemini does more than manufacturing steel products for the oil & gas industry. We create jobs and opportunities for the surrounding communities in Alberta. But our economic contribution would not be possible without the continued support of the town of Ponoka. We are proud to be members of this community, and we do anything we can to give back.

Module Fabrication Capabilities
Gemini Fabrication has a strong reputation for providing high quality fabrication services to the Western Canadian Energy Industry. Our fabrication facility, located in Ponoka, AB, is equipped with the following abilities: wellpads, fabrication & assembly of modules, MCC buildings, pipe racks, meter skids, pipe spools, pump houses, and utility packages among others. Gemini Fabrication's integrated approach allows for the ability to self-perform almost all aspects of the build in-house. This vertical integration allows for schedule and cost certainty other facilities cannot offer due to their high level of subcontract activities. All module fabrication and assembly activities take place at Gemini Fabrication's Ponoka Facility. Gemini Fabrication is situated on the Alberta Highline Corridor and has no restrictions with module size and weight.
Area under roof:
Over 50 Acres
Our shop offers complete flexibility and capability with all the standard and key weld procedures including carbon steel, stainless steel, inconel, hastelloy, high nickel, chrome-moly, monel, and other exotics. Duplex and Super duplex.
Currently, we have sufficient available space to house up to 50 standing, full sized Alberta modules, at various stages of completion.
10 FDI/Man /HR
Pipe fabrication is housed within our 18,400 sq ft shop. This space can be increased by adding up to an additional 24 outdoor stations. Our average welding productivity is 100 FDI/day/welder or 10/FDI per hour, and our repair rate is < 1% on a rolling 12 month basis.
Gemini produces 100 FDI/welder at <1% repair rate
This allows for an intimate understanding of both the trade and code requirements governing our work. Our Quality department prides itself on working collaboratively with our client’s inspectors in a joint effort toward a successful project.
Gemini has over 50 weld procedures, including: carbon steel, stainless steel, inconel, hastelloy, high nickel, chrome-moly, monel, and other exotics. We are one of the only fabricators capable of this type of technically challenging alloy welding. We can utilize stick, sub-arc, flux-core, STT and TIG welding processes.
Gemini Fabrication employs a rigorous Quality Management System (QMS) for all fabrication activities which is currently registered in regional jurisdictions, Alberta (ABSA) and Saskatchewan (TSASK). Currently we hold certifications for shop and field construction with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) for “S” and “U” designated work, the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors(NBBI) with “S”, “U”, and “R” designated work, as well as the Canadian Welding Bureau(CWB) for structural steel fabrication. Project-specific Quality Management Plans are established at time of award to identify the project specific requirements based on scope of supply. Our Quality Team of Inspectors are Certified in accordance with CSA W178.2 as Level I or Level II, and composed primarily of Red Seal Journeymen, who have attained other industry certifications (API 510/570).

Condensation control - we use Foam Glass insulation, which is designed to wick moisture away from the pipe we can eliminate the formation of condensation on pipework and avoid the potential for corrosion
Heat conservation – Insulation used together with a heat medium, such as Electrical or Glycol tracing will protect critical systems from freezing and allow the piped commodity to operate with optimal viscosity.
Cryogenic/cold work- insulation can be applied to maintain temperatures as low as -163 c
Noise controls – insulation can prevent noise transfer by acting to damp the pipe wall
Personnel Protection - pipe insulation can be used to bring surface touch temperatures into a safe range.
