Our team has been involved in the assessment, approval, design and construction of hundreds of water related projects in the Canadian Energy industry.  Specifically, our team has overseen the planning, permitting and design of over forty (40) produced and freshwater storage facilities in Alberta and BC.  This extensive experience allows our team to understand the complexities of these projects and implement strategies to deliver them successfully. 

  • Siting and Design of 300,000 m3 freshwater storage structure – Provided siting, geotechnical investigation, permitting support and preliminary design of 300,000 m3 freshwater reservoir.

  • Freshwater (River) Intake FEED Design –Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for a 10,000 m3 per day freshwater for an intake in BC.   The scope included:

    • Coordination of field studies including: geotechnical investigation, river flow monitoring, flood modelling, groundwater assessment, terrestrial and water-borne geophysics, groundwater assessments and river geomorphology study;

    • River intake design options assessment,

    • Constructability assessment

    • Regulatory application technical support,

    • FEED design package. 

 

  • Water Hub Expansion (2 x 50,000 m3 Saline Storage Ponds) -  Project Manager and Stamping Engineer for 2 x 50,000 m3 saline water storage ponds at Water hub near Fort Saint John, BC.  Scope included preparation of regulatory applications, Issued for Regulatory Approval (IFRA) engineering packages, Issued for Construction (IFC) packages and on-site Construction Quality Assurance/ Quality Control (QA/QC) supervision.

 

  • Brine Pond Study - Confidential Project providing technical expert advice relating to investigation of failure of brine pond synthetic liner system. Scope included on-site investigation, coordination of third party testing, assessment of failure root causes and litigation support as an expert witness.  

  • Produced Water Storage Hub Siting and Design Study (Regulated Waste Facility in AB) – Study to evaluate a variety of saline water storage options assessing capital cost, schedule, regulatory, and environmental protection factors (on-going) and asses various site options in Alberta.

  • Freshwater Reservoir Design and Permitting (350,000 m3 AB Registered Dam) – Project Manager and Stamping Engineer for 350,000 m3 lined freshwater water storage reservoir located near Grande Cache, AB.
