Environmental Regulations Compliance Strategy


Protecting Our Environment


Environmental Regulations Compliance Strategy
New Age Drilling Solutions Incorporated (New Age) has an Environmental Regulations Compliance Strategy (ERC Strategy) to ensure compliance with all applicable environmental regulations at every job site.

The other goal of the ERC Strategy is to focus on leaving a small environmental footprint at every work site. We continually strive to improve our environmental practices and are leaders at developing and utilizing new technologies to further reduce the environmental impact.

New Age always works with local people and authorities, our clients, other contractors at the work site, to ensure we are acting in compliance with local environmental regulations. We seek to ensure respect and compliance with local heritage or First Nations issues for each drilling project. 

During the development of our drilling contracts, New Age recognizes how our business activities will have direct and indirect impacts on the environment. We work with our clients and affected parties to implement clear communication processes, and, standard operating procedures to mitigate these impacts.

New Age has an impeccable environmental record with zero infractions and our drilling practices exceed applicable environmental laws, statutory obligations, and, relevant voluntary codes of practice.

The following Environmental Guidelines are the starting point for our drilling projects and business activities:


• environmental protection and waste minimization is the responsibility of every employee;

• in situations where environmental regulations are absent, New Age utilizes standards, applying research and local knowledge, as well as, best management practices, to achieve environmental protection;

• whenever possible, supplies and materials are sourced locally to minimize transport impacts and support the local community; 

• assess environmental risks and impacts from all business activities;

• follow established Emergency Preparedness & Response Plans for all activities which involve potentially hazardous substances such as chemical or petroleum products; 

• biodegradable drilling fluids are used where feasible;

• where ever possible, waste is recycled, reclaimed, or, reused;

• any spill, accident or violation is immediately reported to New Age’s management team and to regulatory authorities as required; and,

• restore drill locations to acceptable environmental conditions on termination of the project.
New Age is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment and continuously works to develop a clear response to all environmental, social and community issues.

New Age is committed to continuously reviewing and revising their Occupational Health & Safety Policies & Procedures, their Standard Operating Procedures and their Emergency Preparedness & Response Plans to ensure they reflect changing needs and circumstances.
