Oil sands are an unconventional source of bitumen petroleum and the Athabasca oil sands in Alberta, Canada include a notably large deposit. As the third largest deposit in the world, Alberta is home to an estimated 70 percent of worldwide bitumen. These extraction sites use newer technological advances to extract and process the oil, which was previously not practical due to the viscosity of the material. Although there have been no incidents, terrorists bombed natural gas wells in British Columbia in 2008 and 2009. This has led many companies to consider hiring an oil sands security company. The sheer value of this operation makes prevention a smart move. For companies interested in oil sands security, GPS Security is a practical option.
Professional Oil Sands Security Options
No matter the size of your company or the number of remote camps you run, you need a security team that can oversee all areas. A reliable company can create a comprehensive plan that addresses all of your concerns and plans for any event. At GPS Security, all guards are certified in Pipeline Construction Safety Training (PCST) as well as Construction Safety Training Systems (CSTS-09). You may have security concerns in the following areas:
- Camp security and restricted access
- Supervision of machinery and equipment
- Patrols of nearby roadways
- Balancing Security with Safety
While security is of the utmost importance, it must be balanced with employee safety. Oil sands are generally considered a less risky career choice than offshore drilling, but that does not guarantee that things cannot go wrong. The industry must meet the demands of government, consumers, and environmental agencies. Your security team can coordinate with appropriate individuals to schedule security that fits with your mechanical inspections and other safety requirements. It is important to create a plan that accommodates every aspect of your oil and gas business operation to create an environment where everyone can do what needs to be done.
