Indigenous businesses will play a major role in Alberta’s post-pandemic energy strategy and government is committed to ensuring that the necessary supports are in place to build broad Indigenous community participation in the Site Rehabilitation Program (SRP).
Indigenous oil field service companies
Developed with the Indian Resource Council, and with permission of the participating companies, here is a list of some Indigenous oil field service companies in Alberta (XLSX, 73 KB) available to do oil and gas site closure work. Please reach out to companies directly for more information.
* This list will be updated periodically as new information is submitted.
This list is for information purposes only. It is not a complete list of all Indigenous oil field service companies in Alberta – more will be added as additional companies take part. It is the responsibility of grant applicants to ensure the Indigenous Company Criteria is met in their grant application, as outlined in the Site Rehabilitation Program Guidelines (PDF, 903 KB) (page 16). Grant applicants enter into contracts with companies on the list at their own risk. The Government of Alberta is not affiliated with the companies on this list and assumes no responsibility or liability for their use.
Support for contractors
Government is taking immediate steps to enhance Indigenous participation in the Site Rehabilitation Program:
- Government has appointed a dedicated Indigenous liaison to answer questions that may arise from Indigenous companies during the application process, helping to support the completion of accurate, eligible applications. Contact information is included below.
- An Industry Advisory Committee, including representatives from the Indian Resource Council, has been established to provide advice and feedback on the program.
- A roundtable with Indigenous oil field service companies has been established to help connect communities with Indigenous oil field services and to provide two-way communication and information on the program.
Nominate a site for closure
First Nations and Metis Settlements residents can nominate inactive oil and gas sites for closure on-reserve and Settlement through the Site Rehabilitation Program.
The list of nominated sites has been posted. Contractors can view the sites and negotiate with the site licensee (the oil and gas company responsible) to enter into a contract to close the site through a Site Rehabilitation Program grant.
The licensee decides if the work will be completed.
Learn how to nominate an inactive site for clean up.
There is no deadline for submitting sites for closure. Nominated sites will be eligible for grants throughout each Site Rehabilitation Program application period.
