OKC Firm Wins $200 Million Contract to Restore Electrical Power to Puerto Rico

Oklahoma City-based Mammoth Energy Services announced its wholly owned subsidiary, Cobra Acquisitions LLC has won a nearly $200 million contract to restore power to Puerto Rico following the hurricane.

Cobra is a utility infrastructure business that focuses on the repair and construction of transmission and distribution networks.

“After witnessing the destruction from Hurricane Maria first hand last weekend, where 85% of Puerto Rico’s residents are currently living without electricity, we intend to work quickly both to help rebuild the electric grid and to help restore normalcy to people’s lives,” said Arty Streaehla, Mammoth’s Chief Executive Officer.

The contract calls for Coba to carry out comprehensive damage assessment of the existing electrical grid and to provide engineering services in the design of a new electric utility grid to Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority. The company will also provide construction services to rebuild the grid and do so with fully self-contained life support equipment without putting additional strain on the local population.


Crews from the company spent the past week assessing the damage and more are expected to begin arriving this week. It could mean the company will have to temporarily double its workforce of about 250.
