Tervita is an industry-leading innovator in developing off-site drilling waste disposal techniques.  We assist you in designing effective transport and containment systems that custom fit specific drilling conditions and programs.  

Our underground salt caverns provide an environmentally sound disposal option for oilfield liquid and solid wastes. Waste products are pumped into the caverns, typically in slurry form, displacing the naturally occurring brine, which is removed and re-injected into disposal wells. Tervita operates salt cavern disposal facilities in Lindbergh, Alberta and Unity, Saskatchewan. Our cavern operations are licensed to accept a wide range of upstream oil and gas waste, including:

  • Produced Sand
  • Slop Oil
  • Tank Bottoms
  • Sludges
  • Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM)

Tervita currently offers Drilling Waste Services in Canada and USA - please contact us if you have a requirement beyond these geographies.
