Located in close proximity to Fort McMurray regional producers, White Swan’s Atmore Facility offers high volume unload with no wait times and the capability of receiving in excess of 2500m3 per day.
With superior design, additional backup wellbores, pipelines, an Alberta Energy issued subsurface cavern disposal mineral license and pre-disturbed surface leases, the facility boasts a WRAP (Waste Receivers Assessment Program) audit score of 93.59% and its disposal well has been tested among the top rates in the province.
ATMORE FACILITY PHASE 2, 3 & 4 WASTE COMPONENT, ADDITIONAL FACILITY AND CAVERN DEVELOPMENT
White swan finished the phase 2 complete waste processing component in Q1 2017 at the Atmore facility. The future developments include an additional stand alone 1b disposal facility scheduled for Q4 2017 and WSE’S cavern. The cavern development is scheduled to begin in Q4 2017.
The future development of waste storage caverns at Atmore is de-risked by prolific disposal ability, Lotsberg salt thickness and saline wash water.
Subsurface cavern disposal mineral approval has been obtained for this development, and proven disposal zone ability as well as existing surface leases, wells and infrastructure are in place for long term use.
With WSE’s well additions, the Atmore disposal pool is considered one of the highest volume disposal pools in the Province.
History and Geology
The historical absence of high volume disposal facilities serving the oil sands region is due to the lack of geological development.
The shallow nature of the Fort McMurray region created a challenge for third party 1b disposal operators to develop meaningful disposal projects.
In response, the Atmore disposal pool was identified, proven and acquired by White
Swan Environmental to create the largest third party disposal pool closest to the oil
