Owl Ridge provided strategic planning, managed the regulatory process, and conducted field environmental compliance for oil and gas exploration programs in the Nenana Basin and Yukon Flats from 2011 through 2018. The programs included: 2D and 3D seismic programs, lake gas sampling, and drilling of three oil and gas exploration wells. Owl Ridge services included strategic planning, comprehensive permitting, NEPA requirements and wetlands, archaeological and wildlife studies. All programs required management of significant logistic and regulatory challenges in these frontier basins that are absent of infrastructure. Through effective management we were able to save significant costs with efficient waste management processes and receive approvals for beneficial reuse of material on site. The facilities were permitted in coordination with state and local Native groups that resulted in long term benefits to the residents and stimulate other economic opportunities.
