About Us

Richardson Environmental Consulting Services (RECS), is an environmental consulting firm based in Athabasca, Alberta. Since 1999 we have endeavored to reduce our clients’ oil and gas foot print and return affected lands back to the original land use including forest, cultivation, pasture and peatlands. We plan, coordinate and execute all aspects of the reclamation of abandoned wells and pipelines including application for Reclamation Certificates. This can involve full management of the sites, complete to RC application or professionally stamped stand-alone reports for portions of the application (i.e. Phase 1’s or DSA Reports). Over the years we have completed many major Detailed Site Assessment programs in the remote portions of northeast Alberta via helicopter. Our accumulated experience has proven indispensable to our clients in the area.

We advocate safety, leadership, and experience in creating solutions to create savings for our clients while balancing the need to meet regulatory and environmental obligations. Serving the upstream oil and gas sector, our team of professionals have an in-depth knowledge of the specific regulatory issues faced by clients in the ever-changing regulatory process.

In 2018, RECS joined with NorthWind Land Resources Inc. (NorthWind) who are based out of Edmonton, Alberta. Operating as a subsidiary of NorthWind, this relationship has enhanced the services we can offer as well as our geographical coverage with affiliated office locations and personnel in Peace River, Edson and Sundre. We continue to provide quality, cost effective and innovative solutions for our clients, with the highest regard for environmental stewardship.
