Impact Assessment and Remediation Design of Oil Sand Tailings

Alta Tech was retained by one of the world’s largest heavy oil producers from the Oil Sands near Fort McMurray to develop a transport model for a typical contaminant for the industry: Total Dissolved Solids (TDS).

We developed advanced conceptual geological and quantitative hydrogeological models which allowed us to evaluate a variety of scenarios. The evaluation justified reducing the amount of monitoring wells to half of what would have been traditionally installed to monitor potential offsite migration. A significant savings was provided to the client.
