There is one thing all construction, excavation, and demolitions have in common: they are projects which are often necessary, yet have great impacts on our environment. Because of this, many companies in the oil and gas industry, the large construction industry, or any other natural resource extraction industry, practice LAND REMEDIATION, AND LAND RECLAMATION. Both techniques are similar in goal: help the environment through restoration of water, land, soil, trees, etc. However, both employ different methods in order to do this. What is Land Reclamation? This is the process of making all the physically necessary changes to the land, terrain, and soil from which resources were extracted- by doing this, the land is useable once again. Specific services which we offer in land reclamation often include revegetation, hydroseeding, soil replacement, well removal and pipeline removal, and general waste removal or clean up. What is Land Remediation? This is the process of removing certain contaminants from soil or water, as well as the stabilization of any chemicals or contaminants left behind after a project is complete. Specific remediation services we offer often include careful land analysis, erosion control, contamination containment, water treatment, and contamination excavation. These two processes work together to help mediate the impact which many construction projects cause. All of our environmental experts are fully-trained, certified, educated, and insured. According to Alberta Energy Regulators and the Environmental Enhancement and Protection Act, oil and gas companies are legally required to restore all land used for resource extraction back to a productive state.
