Our experience in oil sands and the wider oil and gas processing industry, together with our approach to risk management and our commitment to sustainable business practices, enables us to develop safe, practical and economic designs for our customers.
Multidisciplinary environmental services
Whether a site requires mining or in-situ extraction, our environmental work begins years in advance of design, meeting regulatory agencies needs so that projects are permitted to proceed.
Geotechnical design and engineering services
Our geotechnical engineering services for tailings, water management and overburden disposal support all phases of initial investigation, design, operational support and monitoring.
Social impact studies
We have environmental specialists for socio-economic impact assessments, leadership public participation and implementation.
AMEC has shared best practice of alternative tailings technologies on a wide range of projects in response to climatic, topographic, geochemical or material properties.
AMEC has more than a decade of experience in creating and delivering customised technical training programmes for the local oil sands industry.
Our team is internationally recognised for excellence in providing geotechnical investigations, monitoring, routing, transporting and transmitting services of oil, water and tailings slurry to most major pipelines in Western Canada.
We work in partnership with local governments to design, implement and monitor reforestation projects, focusing on the physical and chemical properties of the soil cap, and testing the performance of various tree and shrub species suitable for revegetation.
