Environmental Planning & Assessments | Ghostpine Enviromental Services ltd

Ghostpine’s philosophy is that planning and communication during the early stages of a project is critical to avoiding potential environmental issues. We work with the client, project engineers, surveyors and land agents early in the planning process in order to identify the issues and to offer informed, cost effective solutions.

Initial routing and siting of wellsites, pipelines and access roads are identified, and viable alternatives are also identified. Routing of pipelines and access roads are chosen to minimize length, where possible, while considering environmental factors. Further honing of the route and scoping of project issues are undertaken through government contact and consultation, background information reviews, public consultation, and via multi-disciplinary studies (i.e., soil assessments, wildlife surveys, archaeological investigations and vegetation surveys).

To efficiently and accurately establish the route and to determine if re-routes/adjustments a field trip may be necessary. Supplementary field studies, such as wildlife surveys may also be recommended. Once background information is synthesized and routing is selected, Ghostpine prepares an EPP (Environmental Protection Plan) report and identifies areas to be addressed during the construction, reclamation and operation phases of the project. Post-construction reclamation monitoring may be warranted to ensure that measures outlined in the EPP were undertaken/addressed.
