Blackbird Energy

Blackbird Energy

In 2015, Blackbird’s management team, spearheaded by Garth Braun, Chairman, CEO and President decided to develop a plan to minimize and help offset its environmental impact.

“We believe the best way to offset our impact is through a Peace River Region tree planting program (‘TPP’). The planting of trees is used to both restore habitat, as it replaces trees that are cleared as part of pad development, and to also aim to offset the CO2e that is emitted through the flaring of our natural gas during initial production testing," said Braun at the time of the program launch.

Through our partnership, Blackbird Energy has planted 2,500 native trees in northwestern Alberta, which will restore almost 15,000 square meters (14,576 m2 or 3.6 acres) of boreal forest on conserved land that was cleared historically for farming. This initial TPP is equivalent to the area of almost 10 NHL rinks and should fully offset the trees removed as part of normal drilling operations.

The TPP is 100% voluntary pursuit, above and beyond any regulatory requirements for reclamation and emissions reductions currently in place for Blackbird’s operations.
