VIDEO: Land reclamation 101

Discover how Canadian oil and natural gas producers ensure the lands they disturb are returned to self-sustaining ecosystems with native plants and trees.

 

Did you know all lands disturbed by oil and natural gas production are reclaimed? Oil and natural gas producers are required by law to return the lands, once they are finished with them, back to an equivalent, biologically self-sustaining ecosystem with native vegetation. This requires careful planning, the involvement of biologists and experts, consultation with nearby communities and stakeholders and monitoring that spans years to ensure it’s done fully and well.
