Project Profiles

Hydrogeology
The process of collecting, managing, and analyzing environmental data is key to successful execution of a project. Whether it is a municipal groundwater study or a large industrial remediation project, our staff will assist you in applying the latest technologies of data management and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Groundwater flow and transport models are a useful and cost-effective tool for managing contaminated sites. A calibrated groundwater flow and transport model can predict the potential migration pathway of a contaminant, evaluate multiple remedial scenarios, locate pump and treat wells for optimal extraction, or evaluate the effectiveness of natural attenuation. The model can also be used in conjunction with a monitoring program to demonstrate compliance to regulatory agencies.

Heavy Oil and EOR Quantitative Hydrogeology

Alta Tech provided quantitative hydrogeology services to support our clients Enhanced Oil Recovery Scheme (EOR). This included a regional hydrogeology study, regional groundwater modelling for Environmental Impact Assessment, and the modelling of thermal impact assessment for groundwater. These models were used to show compliance for the Alberta Energy Regulators (AER), which minimized the number of wells drilled, incurring significant savings for the client.
