At Enerplus, sustainability and the environment go hand in hand. We work to apply best practices, innovative operating strategies and technologies to minimize our environmental footprint. Our plan includes evolving our environmental practices, by developing more robust and integrated air, soil and water environmental strategies. We strive to be a leader in this space and recognize that it is going to take a collaborative effort along with our industry peers to have the greatest impact.
Throughout our operations, Enerplus strives to develop our oil and gas resources in a responsible manner. We consider the environment during each stage of development and work to minimize our environmental footprint. Before we start work, we conduct a pre-disturbance assessment to identify potential environmental sensitivities, risks and enhancement opportunities. This provides us with a good understanding of the “pre-development” state of an area so that we can avoid sensitive environmental features, historical resources, rare plants and sensitive/endangered wildlife, and mitigate environmental impacts where appropriate. This information also helps us plan project reclamation. Read more about our approach below.
In the spirit of collaboration during a very challenging year for industry, Enerplus and PTAC worked together on a methane emissions reduction project targeting glycol dehydrator pumps and shared the results with peers within the Technology for Emissions Reduction and Eco-Efficiency (TEREE) Committee.
