Detailed Site Assessments (DSA)

The Detailed Site Assessment (DSA) is completed for the wellsite and associated facility once the soils have been replaced on the location and the vegetation has had the opportunity to re-establish. This is completed after a few growing seasons but may take longer if the site encounters issues such as weed infestations, severe drought conditions, etc. The DSA is completed to ensure the disturbed area has been returned to an equivalent land capacity in relation to the surrounding area.

DSA’s involve the following:

  • Lease contouring is assessed and compared to adjacent topography.
  • Soils undergo comprehensive assessments to ensure soil replacement meets offsite controls in depth, type, and numerous texture characteristics.
  • Vegetation is assessed to ensure plant health, density, litter, and composition match offsite control vegetation.
  • Professional Sign-off – If the DSA determines that the affected area meets criteria, a Reclamation Certificate Application (Alberta), Acknowledgment of Reclamation (Saskatchewan) Certificate of Restoration (British Columbia) or a Certificate of Abandonment (Manitoba) will be applied for.
