Appraisal and installation of large-scale industrial water source(s) for hydraulic fracturing and camp water supply for an unconventional gas development in NE BC.
Two Specific sources were targeted: deep groundwater sourcing ranging from 200m to 600m below surface, and feasibility of a river bank filtration system water intake in a significant northern river.
The project execution required remote operations, including barge an helicopter logistics, and execution as Prime Contractor.
Integrated Sustainability was responsible for the Prime Contact execution of the ~$5.4M contract for deep groundwater sourcing and appraisal including:
- Execution of a procurement driven cost reduction process finding ~20% (~$1.0M) reduction from original $6.4M budget.
- Prime Contract Execution of the 24hr drilling ad testing program for the Groundwater Appraisal including full technical and regulatory execution, Project and Site Management, HSE Management , Procurement, and Project Controls for the 24hr drilling and testing operation.
- Advancement, installation, and aquifer testing of three appraisal wells completed in the Dunvegan Formation, ranging from a total depth of 250m to 625m.
- Installation, testing, and regulatory reporting for a water supply well and a water source well according to the applicable BC Ministry of Environment and BC Oil and Gas Commission (OGC) Supplementary Information for Water Source Wells (2015).
- Delivery of the program on budget and on schedule.
Integrated Sustainability executed lead contractor responsibilities for the $700k river bank filtration feasibility program including:
- Installation of a testing wellfield for the RBF intake system through a barge an helicopter access program on schedule.
- Subsequent proof of concept of a 20,000 m3/day RBF water intake system
