Reclamation Services for Northeastern British Columbia and Northern Alberta
Highmark Environmental Services Ltd. has offered the following types of reclamation services in Northeastern British Columbia and Northern Alberta.
CoR Parts I and II Applications
Since 1998, Highmark Environmental Services Ltd. has successfully completed hundreds of Certificates of Restoration (CoR) Parts I and II applications. HESL's experience and strong relationship with the local OGC office save you time and ultimately extra lease payments.
Development and Reclamation Plans
Highmark Environmental Services Ltd. prepares development and reclamation plans for all upstream oilfield projects (well sites and ancillary developments). As part of the OGC’s application for Aggregate Operations and Borrow Pits, HESL develops specific development and reclamation plans for oil and gas aggregate or borrow pit operations.
Highmark Environmental Services Ltd. not only has the experience and qualifications to manage the surface reclamation of upstream oil and gas sites but can supply the heavy equipment to perform the earth works. HESL technicians have the training and experience to perform surface reclamation activities from the ground to the seat of a dozer or excavator. This streamlines operations and reduces future site visits.
Seeding and Weed Management
Completing the reclamation process requires a healthy regrowth across disturbed surfaces. Careful contouring and topsoil depths in concert with a site appropriate seed mix lead to successful regrowth and positive CoR Part II application outcomes.
Erosion Control and Monitoring
Highmark Environmental Services Ltd. has used innovative techniques to stabilize disturbed sites. Projects include: riparian restoration, sediment control, spill remediation projects, slope stabilization on newly constructed pipelines, well sites, and access. Stabilized sites speed up habitat enhancement and reduce future liability issues often associated with siltation into waterbodies.
Gas Migration and Surface Casing Vent Testing
Not only is gas migration testing a requirement prior to abandonment, it gives peace of mind to the operator, ensuring that the well bore is structurally sound and future remediation costs will be minimized.
