Oil and gas sites can damage not only the surrounding land, but the ecosystem. Site reclamation is meant to restore ecosystem functions back to normalcy, including crop production and wildlife habitats. The team at Arnold’s Custom Seeding know we’ve done our job properly if we can return disturbed land to its original condition. Another sign of successful oil and gas reclamation is whether the vegetation in the area is self-sustaining. If so, then we know the environment is flourishing.
The crew at Arnold’s Custom Seeding periodically work on the oil and gas site reclamation, even when the well is still in use. If we wait until the end of the well’s lifespan, the damage will have become uncontrollable, and might be irreversible. This intermittent reclamation has become industry standard to promote safety and efficiency. Once the well has run its course, we will then plug the well to prevent any harmful substances from being released into the environment. After well-plugging, we recontour the land and restore plant communities, which eliminates any trace of land disturbance.
Our passion for the restoration of the land on which we live is what fueled the idea for our business. Without the natural benefits of a sustainable ecosystem, we would not be able maintain our lifestyle. Site reclamation is more than a paycheck for us, it’s a way of life. Keep this in mind the next time you’re in need of a company who can perform gas and oil reclamation. There are many companies that have the tools to get the job done, but none who operate at the level of skill and expertise as Arnold’s Custom Seeding professionals.
