Intrusive soils investigation for an abandoned well site

The Challenge

Integrated Sustainability was retained by the client to conduct a Soils Assessment for an abandoned natural gas well site. A Soils Assessment Program was required to determine if there are any areas of environmental concern on the site and to support the application of a British Columbia Oil and Gas Commission (OGC) Certificate of  Restoration (COR) for the site.

The Result

Integrated Sustainability developed and executed the following scope of work:

  • A desktop characterization of the overburden materials, local geological conditions, and hydrogeology of the region.
  • Identification of areas of potential environmental concern (APECs) ad potential contaminants of concern (PCOCs).
  • An intrusive investigation to characterize the types, concentrations, an locations of any PCOCs that may be present.
  • Preparation of a report summarizing the findings.

River Water Intake

Integrated Sustainability was asked to perform a critical evaluation of an existing conceptual design for a new river water intake. In addition, the client also requested that Integrated Sustainability identify areas for design improvement and modifications, if necessary. As an output of the review process the client required an updated conceptual design, a regulatory road map for project execution and a Class 5 cost estimate for engineering and construction.
