      Native Plants & Reclamation $ Establishing Native Plant Communities Add to Cart.   Dave Core, CEO of Canadian Association of Energy and Pipeline Landowners Associations (CAEPLA), warned in an interview, Monday, the penalty process could actually impose new restrictions on, and responsibilities for, agricultural operators and pipeline land owners. “This is pretty scary stuff,” Core said by phone from Regina.

      (Government of Alberta ). Equivalent land capability is defined as “.the ability of the land to support various land uses after conservation and reclamation is similar to the ability that existed prior to an activity being conducted on the land, but that the individual land .

        Data and guidelines were created to aid reclamation planners in soil reclamation and conservation planning in Alberta. Soil inventory data, climate type, soil landscape data, maps and reports were presented. Each soil series in Alberta was characterized to provide information on how construction planning and operations can be affected. These measures include topsoil conservation, erosion/sediment control and reclamation. This paper discusses environmental protection measures for pipeline abandonment, using issues faced during abandonment of one of the oldest natural gas pipelines in Alberta as a case study.

Below is a listing of guidelines for land conservation, reclamation and remediation in Alberta. These lists are not exhaustive. Users should also search for other regulatory documents for their projects. For guidelines on upstream energy resource development, visit: Alberta Energy Regulator (AER).

Alberta’s land reclamation practices have developed methodically. Through the s, oilfield practice was simply intended to keep a site clean and safe. This changed in the s, when an increasingly activist province focused on making sure that its petroleum industry kept its exploration and production sites safe and stable.

Reclamation. Overview. The Reclamation team at InnoTech Alberta provides leadership on the development of applied, innovative, practical and holistic land reclamation and remediation procedures and technologies for landscapes disturbed by industrial activities for the benefit of our partners, clients and all Albertans.

Pipeline Rules. The AER regulates more thankm of oil and gas pipelines throughout Alberta. The majority of pipelines in Alberta carry natural gas or oil effluent (production from oil wells).

This document is primarily concerned with provincial high-pressure oil and natural gas pipelines that are owned or operated by energy companies. lands. A review of reclamation standards for upstream oil and gas facilities is timely because of improvements in reclamation practices, scientific developments and recommendations for improving the former criteria.

The Reclamation Criteria Advisory Group began with an assessment of the Reclamation Criteria: intending to retain the parts that. The Conservation and Reclamation Regulation (Government of Alberta ) lists the industrial activities subject to the are primarily related to extraction and processing of resources (oil, gas, oil sands, coal, sand and gravel and other minerals) or linear developments (pipelines, roads, transmission lines and railways).

lands presently used for, or capable of, cultivation. Soil conserva-tion procedures specified in the D & R Application must be based on the soil evaluation. A detailed guide to the preparation of a soil report Is outlined in Appendix B "Soil Evaluations for Pipelines on Agricultural Land.

Well and Pipeline Abandonment and Reclamation After a project is completed and production has ceased, a company is required to abandon and reclaim the well, pipeline, and all associated lands and facilities.

This section explains the requirements and obligations a company has to abandon and cap a. reclamation of a pipeline. Depending on the nature and extent of the surface disturbance, the content and level of detail in the application can be reduced or increased as needed. Proponents should discuss their projects as soon as possible with staff of Land Reclamation Division, Alberta Environmental Protection (3rd Floor, Oxbridge.

ecological functions of forested lands, practices applicable on agricultural lands (predominantly former grasslands) were imported into the forest.

A soil. Reclamation of land after the disturbance of pipeline installation is reviewed. Planning considerations for pipelines are outlined including a comparison of pipelining and surface mining. The physical (topography, topsoil conservation, rutting and soil compaction and water management) and biological (vegetation, fish and wildlife) parameters affected by the disturbances are discussed.

Footprints: The Evolution of Land Conservation and Reclamation in Alberta. Author(s) / Creator(s) Chandler, G. McKenzie-Brown, P. Bott, R. Footprints: The Evolution of Land Conservation and Reclamation in Alberta is the story of how Alberta’s land conservation and reclamation program came into being and how it has progressed over the past half century.

Reclamation of disturbed forested lands should include recontouring to an acceptable landform, and revegetation to achieve soil stabilization for the desired end land use (e.g., timber production, agricultural purposes, aquatic and terrestrial habitat, and various kinds of recreational activities).

Len “basically created the “bible” in the reclamation planning manual for all the soil series in Alberta. He is also the author of the “bible” for reclamation practices for quarry and gravel pit surface disturbances in Alberta. The agriculture side of agrology also benefited from his work on the Alberta Soil Information project (AGRASID).

This is part two of our ‘pipeline reclamation in action’ series. In part one, we learned about the planning and pre-construction measures taken by Kinder Morgan Canada to facilitate reclamation after the completion of their Trans Mountain Anchor Loop project.

Alberta first legislated the requirement to reclaim land disturbed by industrial activities in with the enactment of the Surface Reclamation Act. In the Land Surface Conservation and Reclamation Act introduced the concept of conservation and added new regulated industries and an approvals process.
