ROAD, LEASE & PAD RESTORATION
The Alberta Energy Regulator requires that land no longer required for energy company usage be reclaimed. Before receiving AER approval to begin a project, companies provide a reclamation plan to return the land to how it looked and its usage [or similarly) before development occurred.
That's where STAT Energy comes in! We are adept at helping companies restore sites back to their former glory. We have the staff and equipment to enable companies to receive their reclamation certificates. We can assist with the removal of infrastructure as well as re-seeding and reforestation efforts.
FACILITY, PIPELINE ABANDONMENT, SUSPENSIONS,
"Companies regularly stop using certain wells, pipelines, facilities, or mines for a short period of time to perform routine maintenance. The infrastructure is considered "shut in" when it's in this state. However, if a well, pipeline, or facility is shut in for longer than 6 or 12 months (depending on the type of site and its potential risks to the public or environment), and is not being used, it is considered inactive. The company must do additional work to suspend the well or facility, or discontinue the pipeline to ensure that the public and environment area protected while it is inactive." -Alberta Energy Regulator
AERIAL DRONE OBSERVATION SURVEYS
Aerial surveying has the potential to help various industries, but one area where the technology has proven incredibly useful is in oil and gas reclamation design. After years of relying on either the traditional method of using GPS or the more expensive process of employing aerial operators, we can now acquire aerial topography data using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and, with modelling software, use this information to create reclamation areas that are well designed and relatively inexpensive. STAT Energy prides its claim on being a diverse, full-service solution for companies in the oil and gas industry, therefore we invest in the most efficient technologies to minimize downtime and ensure a responsible reclamation result at the end of the production life cycle.
Some aerial drone observation survey applications include site assessments, mapping and reclamation planning, mine and industrial site inspection/monitoring to meet regulatory requirements, tailings, waste rock and feedstock volume calculations, leak detection and monitoring, green tree retention and forest regeneration surveys, site-specific biodiversity assessments and monitoring.
