Extraction of Natural Resources for the Oil & Gas Industry

The extraction of natural resources for the oil and gas industry is increasing at an alarming rate, which means the necessity for land reclamation on oil and gas wells has never been more apparent. At Duraroot, we have an abundance of experience in natural resource damage assessment, or NRDA, not only in the oil and gas industry, but others as well. Our services include crisis management planning, incident planning, restoration planning, and so much more. Contact our team for a full list of services we provide.

Drill Pad Reclamation Services Performed by Company

In the oil and gas industry, drill pads are often what affects the land formation the most. Drilling deep into the soil can mix good topsoil with bad topsoil, effectively ruining the vegetation in the area of the drill site. Our job is to make it look as though the extraction of natural resources didn’t occur. Proper soil fertility and soil amendment rates increase plant germination, establishment and growth in the area of the drill site, which decreases the amount of time it takes to reclaim the land. Our team also knows how to ensure there is no weed outbreak around the drill pad by placing just the correct amount of fertilizer.

Crew of Experts Professionally Monitor Your Site

In any construction project, no matter the size or location, stormwater compliance is required. The sediment from a disturbed site must remain on-site and out of the waters of the state, otherwise there will be consequences. Luckily, the team at Duraroot can supply inspection and compliance services for all forms of stormwater management. We have a firm grasp on the intricacies of permitting and compliance, so you don’t have to be concerned about handling a project yourself.

Managing Topsoil in the Oil and Gas Industry

By effectively salvaging and protecting the topsoil on a drill site, we’re able to preserve the seed bank and microbial community that resides there. Doing so promotes environmental sustainability for years on end, not just in the short-term. Furthermore, the proper salvage of topsoil will limit the amount it mixes with subsoil to create ideal conditions for land reclamation once the job is complete.
