Case Study

Environmental Consulting Services (CAN)

Provision of environmental consulting services for an oil and gas asset in a remote northern area of British Columbia. SLR provided land quality technical services to assess the characteristics and extents of the contamination at the site.  Petroleum hydrocarbons from condensate liquids and salts from produced waters have been identified across the site in the unconsolidated soils, bedrock and groundwater.  The contamination has extended spatially outwards from the site in nearly all directions (situated on a topographic high) with a plume length of approximately 400 m at its longest observed point.
