Evergreen Energy takes pride in its environmental performance, particularly, in creating minimal ground disturbance and superior site reclamation.

Ensuring soils are stored properly, that ditches are packed and the clay base returned is as important to us as it is to the environment.  As with all of our work, we strive to do it right the first time:  When we do a final site clean-up and Right-of-Way reclamation, we use proven, time-tested methods of soil conservation and handling.  Ultimately, it saves time and money while building positive relationships between landowners and oil and gas producers.

For instance:

  • We routinely use low ground pressure (LGP) dozers and side booms that cause no permanent damage to native vegetation.
  • All of our excavators have 32” street pads to distribute machine weight.
  • Our versatile Sampson is our “go-to” ditcher. This rubber-tired machine cuts 20-inch trenches through farmland, minimizing the amount of soil we need to strip, and creating as little as possible field disturbance. We also use this machine in the bush when the ground is not frozen and conditions permit.
  • Designed in-house, our custom-built packing wheel is an excavator attachment that re-packs clay into the ditch after the pipeline is laid. The clay creates a solid, natural base to return the successive layers of soil during the reclamation process, even when the ground is frozen. This minimizes potential landowner issues by enabling landowners to start field work in the spring as usual.
  • We use a topsoil cutter on frozen ground to minimize any add mixing of soil horizons.
Environment Protection

Environmental protection and reclamation are key to our business and to our integrity. We are committed to protecting the environment in the same way we are committed to employee safety. For us, the two go hand-in-hand.

We are an Alberta company and we know this country. We have worked successfully in some of the most challenging terrain, including the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and on sensitive farmland.

We always use best-management practices to minimize our environmental footprint. We routinely use rubber-tired wheel ditchers, for instance, to reduce ditch width to 500 mm, and we pay close attention to ground conditions. We ensure adequate ditch line compaction, while also ensuring soil horizons are returned to their original state when the job is done.

Armed with the latest technological know-how, we are known for developing innovative solutions to difficult problems.
