The Oil & Gas Awards Industry Summit and Awards Gala Dinner event went north of the border to Canada last night with their 2015 Canada event in Calgary. Senior leaders from E&P, Midstream and the Vendor community gathered to deliver practical insights on methods for improving best practice and instilling excellence in crucial areas such as health and safety, environmental protection, regulation and community engagement.
Among a bevy of who’s who in the oil and gas industry, the Honorable Lois Mitchell, Lieutenant Governor of Alberta was the guest of honor.
The Awards continue to act as are a platform for the oil and gas industry to demonstrate and celebrate the advances made in the key areas of environmental stewardship, health & safety, efficiency, innovation and corporate social responsibility.
VZ Environmental Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship
VZ Environmental won this award at the Denver gala last year and has now chosen to sponsor the award. The VZ Environmental Award for Excellence in Environmental Stewardship spotlights a company judged to be an industry leader in environmental stewardship.
Congratulations to McMillan-McGee Corp.
McMillan-McGee was judged the best among many entrants that the Oil & Gas Awards received for the Canadian region.
“Huge volumes of contaminated soils exist that need to be treated. Faster more effective means of treatment. Lower costs so more contaminated soil might be reclaimed.”
“When considering this category I felt that McMillan-McGee showed true innovation in tackling environmental remediation issues. To be able to employ a technology that would in essence separate contaminants from soil which could be collected and removed rather than stripping areas of their natural soils and back-filling is quite progressive. Anyone that has had experience in an environmental clean up will recognize that finding suitable soil to back-fill can be a huge challenge and if one could use a technology to clean the soil that is there rather than dumping it somewhere else is truly a technological advancement for the oil and gas industry.”
About McMillan-McGee Corp
McMillan-McGee Corp is a full-service, client-focused company providing advanced engineering solutions to their clients in their management of environmental challenges. They are the creators of the patented “Electro-Thermal Dynamic Stripping Process” (ET-DSP).
ET-DSP is a in-situ thermal remediation technology for cleaning contaminated sites. ET-DSP uses readily available three phase electrical power to heat the subsurface with electrodes. Electrodes are placed at various depths and locations optimized to the unique dimensions of a site. Electrical current to each electrode is controlled continuously by computer resulting in uniform heating of the target contamination zone.
