The WEST, ULC team has experience in supporting oil and gas exploration and development projects. Our approach and support on mineral development projects remains consistent regardless of whether the client has a single well or full field development. This has included designing studies, collecting data, preparing documents, and consulting with government agencies.
WEST, ULC’s experts can conduct biological surveys or habitat assessments to support agency permitting of oil, gas, and mining projects. WEST, ULC staff can incorporate standardized protocols or can develop project specific methods to obtain precise data on the wildlife use of an area proposed for development. Biologists use their extensive knowledge to identify potential adverse effects that may occur to individuals or populations and suggest mitigation to minimize these effects.
