Since 2018 Edwards Land has become Shell Canada’s main service provider for Surface Land services. I have personally utilized their Land and GIS services in all facets of the Oil & Gas Industry from Reclamation & Abandonment through Upstream and Downstream projects, and a few Renewable projects as well. The team at Edwards is very knowledgeable about the regulatory requirements in Western Canada, and Edwards has ensured these requirements are met in a timely manner. The projects that Edwards are involved in are consistently delivered in the given timeframe and within budget, which provides Shell with a high degree of certainty on the access to land for our projects. The recent addition of GIS and mapping services has streamlined processes and drastically reduced timelines. The clear and concise mapping ensures all third party infrastructure is identified, so there are no surprises in requests, approvals or construction. This service is utilized by numerous internal teams at Shell and has been highly effective from project planning through to access and project execution.
