Reclamation in Action
Land Reclamation is integral to the sustainable operation of the oil and gas sector and other resource-based industries.
Land reclamation erases industrial footprints. It can start at ground level, with removal of contaminated soil or treatment of depleted soils. It can include harvesting seeds and then replanting to restore vegetation. It requires knowledge of the environmental impacts of the oil and gas industry combined with expertise in soil management, horticulture, native plants, climate, forestry, and the logistics of working safely in remote locations.
Both Alberta and B.C. offer oil and gas companies a way to reduce their environmental liability through reclamation program which certify the restoration of former well sites and pipelines to a condition as close as possible to the original, natural state.
Reclaimit offers professional, proven and safe reclamation services, even in the most difficult and remote environments. Our skilled project planning and site management ensure effective health, safety and environment protocols. We solve your problems – we don’t create new ones.
From Complex Problem to Solid Solution
Reclamation projects are often complex. Locations can be remote. Experience and solid project planning give you results at the lowest possible cost. For example, when possible we hire contract local workers to take advantage of their familiarity with the terrain and to reduce the cost of bringing in operators and machinery.
Integrating Natural Vegetation
Reclaimit specializes in reclamation strategies that work with nature by using native plants as allies in restoring the land. A few advantages of this approach include: effective long-term erosion control; elimination of weed management; improved nutrient availability; reduced need for monitoring; and, less site preparation. All of these benefits combine to give you long-term savings in dollars and can used to tangibly demonstrate enhanced environmental stewardship; restoration of sites with native plants a solid way to demonstrate a broader social value for land management.
