Hearings Scheduled For Oil Waste Project South of Fort McMurray

Two public hearings are being held in Calgary to discuss a project south of Fort McMurray.

The Alberta Energy Regulator is holding these meetings in November to discuss the Hangingstone oilfield waste management facility.

In February, Pure Environmental Waste Management Ltd applied to construct and operate the project which would consist of two disposal wells, two deep salt caverns, as well as processing and separation equipment.

The caverns would be store waste streams that have no hydrogen sulphide for the purpose of oil recovery.

The company is also looking to create a pipeline for salt water which would be just under 20 km long.

The hearings will take place at Govier Hall on November 18 and November 25.
