BUILDING A SAFTEY CULTURE
With uncompromising focus on safety, our team executes with expert precision considering all facets of regulatory compliance. We work to minimize impact and contribute to the over all project success.
From the beginning to the end of the project Cokel’s professional team will minimize impacts, liabilities and enhance value.
Reclamation and Remediation
Contaminated sites require added insight and negotiation through extended paperwork processes but Cokel will lead the charge and help you through reclamation and remediation for your property. Whether the accident happened under your management or there are lingering contaminants to work through in the process of acquiring land, we have the expertise and experience to get you through it with the least amount of hassle and fees. Perhaps there was a false contamination claim that you need our help with? In any case, we’ll clear things up and get your reclamation certiﬁcate in no time!
Request a complete site assessment from the expert staff at Cokel before you buy or move forward with your next project. We’ll conduct soil and vegetation assessments on the property to ensure that all regulatory guidelines have been met and alert you to any problems before they become a threat. Don’t worry about all of the paperwork – we have it covered. In fact, we’ll complete the applications for reclamation certiﬁcates or any other equivalent certiﬁcations that the site requires and forward all copies to the relevant parties so that everyone is in the loop.
After you have successfully completed the DSA L process, we can move into the application for reclamation certiﬁcation. We’ll stand right by your side throughout the regulatory inquiries to provide clear, concise answers for the regulators, landowners, and other interested parties. The ﬁrst phase of the process is designed to review the potential and actual environmental concerns at the site and plan for the second phase when all sampling and environmental liability claim drafting occurs. During the third phase, we’ll monitor and direct the subcontractors for remediation, sample collection and analysis, and on-site work. Cokel is dedicated to helping you through the reclamation certiﬁcation process as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Cokel’s pre-development services are designed to reveal all of the site background information that can effect the environment after development. Our expert team will classify, delineate, and conduct tests for environmental sensitivities like your proximity to bodies of water, animal nesting sites, the presence of minerals, underground soil stability, and vegetative species counts. Whether you’re speciﬁcally seeking help for the delineation of wetlands, wildlife or vegetation surveys, a Phase I ESA acquisition, or you’re simply looking for a complete review and analysis of your site, we’ll ensure that your project starts off on the right foot. After we know the full story of what you’re working with, Cokel will even make construction decisions to maximize efﬁciency and avoid environmental impacts down the road.
OIL AND GAS
At Cokel, we specialize in developing landowner relationship and partnering with local authorities to acquire the land that you need to expand, develop, and construct your oil and gas energy projects. We immerse our experts in local land issues to fully understand the speciﬁc challenges in each area and offer the highest quality representation and consulting services, ensuring your success. No land acquisition plan is out of our grasp and we can help you secure the land that you need for any size of project: one or one hundred wells, 300 meters or 300 kilometres of pipeline!
The development of power infrastructure for co-gen facilities, peaking stations, and transmission lines require land access permits and several layers of detailed paperwork and red tape. Let Cokel represent you and guide you through the process with expert consultation and negotiation services. We match our services to suit your speciﬁc project needs and always work with the highest attention to detail, ensuring that you have everything that you need for successful construction and legal management
