At GT, we believe that the world will need hydrocarbons to power the transition to a more sustainable future. It’s our job to help energy producers quantify their performance and build a better tomorrow.
“We support collaborative water management, participating in watershed advisory councils and in regional water monitoring initiatives for our in situ oil sands operations. We take part in multi-operator water sharing agreements.” – Page 62
GT helps producers gain full market transparency which includes alternative options to disposal like water sharing opportunities.
Canadian Natural Resources
“Through joint venture agreements with other companies, some of our landfills are now accepting third-party material, further reducing transportation and allowing support for remediation projects and operational efficiencies.” – Page 22
GT helps producers turn a disposal asset like a landfill into a revenue opportunity. We also help producers quantify the environmental benefits of alternative treatment, reuse or disposal options.
Crescent Point Energy
“To mitigate this risk, we ensure proper oversight and accountability at the management and Board level to ensure we effectively manage water risk. As part of our risk management process, we take a prudent approach to the sourcing, transportation, use, recycling and disposal of the water we use to mitigate potential impacts and ensure our development activities uphold our commitment to being strong environmental stewards throughout our operations.” – Page 46
GT provides transparency to field operators who make and execute disposal decisions. These decisions provide the basis for oversight and demonstrate strong environmental stewardship.
“Goal: we will continue to reduce our environmental footprint through active engagement and technological advancement.
2025 Target: by 2025 we will achieve a 50% reduction in fresh water use per well within our completions corporately, based on our 2019 baseline.” – Page 11
GT provides producers with real time reporting to track operational, financial, regulatory and environmental performance. What gets measured gets managed.
“Water management plans for each area identify and mitigate water risks over the long term, promoting responsible water stewardship by evaluating re-use opportunities, source alternatives and wastewater disposal solutions.” – Page 30
GT provides full-cost decision support on every disposal, reuse or treatment option in the market. Best option; on every single load.
“We continually evaluate opportunities to reduce waste generation or find more efficient waste management opportunities. Given the remote nature of our operations, we factor in GHG emissions associated with transporting waste to waste management facilities. We focus on reducing, recycling and disposing locally when possible to minimize these emissions.” – Page 41
GT is the only digital solution provider that calculates GHG emissions due to transportation on every waste and water load. Canadian energy producers continue to lead the way in environmental performance.
Murphy Oil Corporation
“A core principle of our plan is waste hierarchy where we first reuse, the recycle, then recover and finally dispose where practicable. Waste prevention and reduction at source are Murphy’s preferential options and are deployed whenever possible.” – Page 38
GT tracks all disposal metrics and allows producers to quantify what volumes are reused, recycled, recovered and disposed of.
“All produced water from our operations is safely disposal of in our own disposal wells or transported via pipeline or truck to regulated third party disposal facilities.”- Page 23
GT through it’s partnership with Wotherspoon Environmental brings the Waste Receiver Audit Program into operations and helps producers manage and track vendor performance.
“Peyto’s waste management strategy requires that all waste be properly manifested and recorded to ensure compliance with all Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) and provincial regulatory requirements.”- Page 29
GT is the easiest way to ensure waste loads are aligned with TDG regulations and tracked cradle-to-grave.
“In addition to complying with all regulatory waste material production, control and disposal requirements, we see waste recycling, reuse and recovery as an opportunity to generate economic social and environmental benefits.”- Page 17
GT provides the most through reporting suite which allows producers to quantify economic, social and environmental benefits.
Tamarack Valley Energy
“In addition, as part of our EOR optimization, our engineers identified that more water injection was required to improve recoveries in the EOR. To ensure that the optimization did not drive additional fresh water use, a non fresh source well was identified and drilled to supply sufficient make-up water.”- Page 28
GT helps producers find beneficial reuse opportunities like providing water to neighboring producers for EOR schemes. In fact, one of our clients was able to reduce disposal demand by 30% all while helping their neighboring producer reduce their fresh water demand simply by collaboration.
“As an organization, the majority of Vermilion’s water withdrawl (88%) are produced water associated with conventional oil production. The majority of this volume (73% of total discharge) is reinjected into the oil producing formations for voidage replacement or disposed via deep well injection. Lifecycle tracking of produced water is a regulatory and corporate obligation with defined accounting and reporting requirements.”- Page 139
