Water Supply Evaluation


Water Supply Evaluations Are Conducted for the Following Sectors:

  • Hydraulic Fracturing
  • Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) Operations
  • Enhanced Oil Recovery (ER) Projects
  • Oilfield Facility and Camp Water Supply
  • Residential and Commercial Developments

Temporary Diversion Licence (TDL)

Users seeking to divert non‐saline water must obtain either a Term Licence or a Temporary Diversion Licence (TDL). Depending on the water source, intended use and required volume, a detailed report completed by a registered professional is required to accompany the application. Baseline Water's experience and established relationships with service companies and regulators can aid the timeline and approval of licence applications.

Deep Aquifer Supply and Disposal

Saline groundwater is generally characterized with a total dissolved solid (TDS) concentration greater than 4,000 mg/L. The use of drill stem test (DST) data, injectivity testing and logging information can assist in deep aquifer supply and disposal. Proper well development, chemical treatment and geophysical logging can improve the success of a deep aquifer supply or disposal project.
