Midstream infrastructure build-out is occurring at a rapid pace across the Marcellus, Utica, and other shale plays throughout North America.  One critical aspect of this infrastructure build-out is efficient and effective restoration of sites after construction.  Success in this marketplace requires diligent operators who understand the complex variability among sites and adapt their restoration practices accordingly.  Poor planning and execution of right-of-way operations can result in failed site restorations, delayed letters of determination, and potential notices of violation - ultimately leading to extended in-service dates and increased project costs.

This course introduces the learner to topics essential for efficient site restoration, including: 
  • Soil testing and soil fertility basics
  • Compaction
  • Soil Structure and Soil Health
  • Dealing with Difficult Sites
  • Keys to Establishing Vegetative Cover
  • Selecting the Best Plant Species for the Site
  • Erosion and Sedimentation Considerations
  • Equipment Options for Efficient Site Restoration
  • Weed Control and Maintenance of Restored Sites
  • Fixing Failed Site Restorations
This course is a must for midstream operators, producers, engineering and environmental consultants, site contractors, and industry suppliers. 1.125 CEUs are available by attending. Register online by Monday, April 7th at:
