Fort Kent Geothermal Cavern
The Fort Kent Geothermal Cavern accepts AER-regulated solid and liquid oilfield waste, imported non-hazardous recyclable waste, and Alberta generated non-oilfield waste including process water, wash fluids and hydrovac slurries.
We’re doing things better by providing:
- Weigh-in scale located directly ahead of entrance gate.
- Nine drive-through off-loading stations to avoid long wait times.
- Wash cannons for safe and efficient cleaning of truck tanks.
- A second weigh scale prior to exiting, eliminating potentially dangerous 2-way traffic.
Wastewater is recycled in the facility process, and where possible, oil is recovered for transport to an appropriate location. This facility operates as a Net-Zero Carbon Emissions facility and is fully electric.
