Relevant Project Experience

  • Sundre – Diesel spill into a creek. Water and sediment sampling completed as part of monitoring program. Completed an excavation along a road side ditch near the spill source with impacted soils being hauled to a Class II disposal facility.
  • Fox Creek – Confirmatory soil sampling of an excavation at a flare knock-out tank. Historical contamination was identified as an issue on this location.
  • Rocky Mountain House – Supervised excavation of a spill on an existing wellsite. Hydrocarbon-impacted soils were hauled to a Class I disposal facility. Provided recommendations to both a trucking and oil company during this process which also involved spill impact to a buried sump area.
  • Edmonton area – Used calcium nitrate amendment during flushing and recovery process of a large scale produced water spill. Cost reporting and feasibility study were objectives of this project. Correlated results with electromagnetic (EM) survey and soil analytical.
  • Swan Hills – Supervise contouring as necessary on hill cuts and complete rollback on a trail formerly used as access to a spill site.
  • Edmonton area – Obtained vegetation data from a wheat crop on a reclaimed wellsite and access road impacted by salts. An EM survey and soil analytical provided necessary information as well.
  • Drayton Valley – Water well testing to obtain drawdown and recovery data as well as water analytical prior to a drilling program.
  • Central and Northern Alberta – Numerous site inspections of wellsites, access roads, pipeline right-of-ways, and facilities. Completed Environmental Field Reports necessary for regulatory submission.
  • Hinton and Mayerthorpe – Phase I ESA's in accordance with reclamation documents from Alberta Environment. Followed up with Phase II ESA's for target areas identified with potential contamination and a sump investigation in association with an EM survey.
