A new approach to site restoration

Terra-Sano is an experienced full-service earthworks, reclamation and environmental consulting team. We provide integrated surface abandonment, decommissioning and reclamation/remediation services.


Terra-Sano is proud to be an industry leader offering full earthwork and environmental services throughout Alberta. Established in 2014, our offices and facilities in central and southern Alberta provide expertise and implementation of an approach not typically seen in our industry. At Terra-Sano, we provide all the necessary personnel, equipment, tools, and knowledge to take your projects from start to finish. This approach allows us to apply our own strategies, guaranteed timely delivery and saves money without having to engage third party consultants and excavation contractors.

Although the Energy industry in Alberta has faced some challenges, Terra-Sano continues to adapt and provide efficient, knowledgeable, and expert services. We continue to offer the highest quality in industry standards and rely on our highly trained team of professionals, with decades of energy services experience, to provide our customers with cutting edge technologies and strategies.


Terra-Sano specializes in managing each stage leading to the achievement of a reclamation certificate and completing the tasks required by regulatory agencies. By handling every stage of the process, with a strict focus on time-sensitive and detail oriented solutions, we provide the highest level of project quality. Working as an integrated team, we capture economies of scale and avoid the traditional spending approach, increasing the amount of work on tangible site restoration and lowering administrative costs. We use a thorough reclamation assessment process to develop a practical and efficient plan that delivers meaningful project solutions. Our proprietary project management tool provides real-time activity and budget tracking, ensures regulatory compliance, and systematically organizes all documentation related to a project in one location. Our goal is to make your money count and reduce your exposure to regulatory uncertainty by shortening the reclamation cycle.


Terra-Sano will save you money

Terra-Sano will significantly reduce your reclamation costs through a focused, planned process that shifts spending from consulting and administration to tangible site restoration in the field.


At Terra-Sano, we whole-heartedly believe in the need to eliminate the “single-purpose” work practice that has become commonplace within the reclamation industry. These practices promote wastefulness, inefficiencies and, ultimately, add significant costs to the process of obtaining a reclamation certificate. All services are completed in house, which reduces consulting time and rescheduling expenses, while ensuring Terra-Sano remains accountable for the project from start to finish. We have a complete fleet of heavy, agricultural and transportation equipment, as well as aerial survey services, and advanced environmental sampling and analysis equipment. Give us an opportunity to describe our processes and demonstrate how we will save you money.

The collapse of natural gas prices in 2009 hit Alberta’s natural gas producers hard. In the face of a natural gas glut, companies were forced to tear apart their cost structures to preserve cash flow…


What’s all the excitement about LMR?


In the midst of the most significant petroleum downturn in decades, Canadians are concerned about the number of inactive and “orphan” oil and gas wells in Western Canada and the associated public liability. At the same time, abandonment and reclamation costs are soaring, while the time and expense of getting to a reclamation certificate have ballooned. In these economically and politically uncertain times, environmental groups and the general public are urging politicians and regulators to set agressive abandonment and reclamation timelines and hold the industry accountable.
