Encana and the Lifespan Planning Approach (LPA)

When I got to the meeting spot, Encana Reclamation Coordinator Bryan Whitely stood outside his white pick-up truck with hard hats, jumpsuits and protective eyewear, clearly ready to start the day. As we piled in to head out, Whitely began passionately explaining how things had changed in the industry. "Contrast is a beautiful thing" he said as we pulled up to our first stop.
...
Whitely explained how they had used a process known as land-forming to introduced hydrologic variation in the landscape, more in keeping with the land's natural state, in order to promote native establishment and diversity.
...
Whitely then took us to production sites that had been designed and constructed before he began working for Encana at a time when the impacts of oil and gas development were poorly understood.
...
Whitely excavates the area to be drilled so that he can form the resulting soil into large berms. These berms completely encircle the well pad, offering spill containment, noise and visual impact reduction, and prevent stormwater pollution and sedimentation by containing and filtering them on site. The site's elegance resides in the fact that Whiteley seeds and mulches the berms to minimize soil loss by erosion during production, making the well pad, from a distance, look like nothing more than a gentle hill. When production activities stop, the well can be completed and the top soils simply pushed back to their original position. Whitely then land forms the area to restore its natural hydrologic patterns, mulches, and finally re-seeds the area.

GARFIELD COUNTY, Colo. - Brian Whiteley, an award-winning reclamation construction coordinator for Encana Oil and Gas, loves to talk shop.

His job is to make sure lands are returned to better condition than before drilling began. "Oil and gas is held to a higher standard than any other industry," said Whiteley.
He says the rest of the state has to reach a 70 percent vegetation standard, whereas oil and gas must maintain at least 80 percent. "It doesn't seem like much, but it's a very high standard in a dry land environment," added Whiteley.
Each site varies, but on average, the initial drilling phases of an oil pad can use around five acres, as well as nearby roads.
In order to restore the landscape afterward, Encana reseeds the lands to the owner's specifications (whether it's federal or private). "(This) is three years of re-vegetation," said Whiteley, referring to a site in Battlement Mesa.
On federal lands, Encana must use visual and audio tactics to become nearly invisible to the passerby.
Walls created out of dirt keep equipment noise below the required decibels. "It also acts as a visual screen," added Whiteley.
All equipment on well pads situated on federal lands have to be painted a specific color based on the natural habitat of that area. In the Bureau of Land Management's Pinyon-Juniper Woodlands, that color is shadow gray.
Once the entire site is dead, all equipment is removed and the ground is filled in. Constructed boulder walls come down to re-contour the area, which is mixed with mulch and spread roughly to retain moisture. "That's a significant advantage when you're trying to restore habitat," Whiteley noted.
