Dawson Creek Reclaimed Water Project
We collaborated with the City of Dawson Creek to build a reclaimed water facility that virtually eliminates the need to draw on fresh water for our operations in the area.

The Dawson Creek Reclaimed Water Project is an example of how Shell is innovating to respond to global challenges such as the “Stress Nexus”.
At Shell’s Groundbirch natural gas asset in Northeast British Columbia, we recognize the importance of managing water responsibly.
Shell designed the Dawson Creek Reclaimed Water Project to minimize traffic on local roads.
Shell holds about 300 sections of land in the Sunset-Groundbirch area. Operations include four natural gas processing plants, over 250 wells and 900+ kilometres of pipeline which are producing over 190 million standard cubic feet of raw gas per day (mmcfe/day).
Shell is looking for innovative ways to reduce the amount of fresh water used for our activities.
Over the coming decades, more people will gain access to energy and enjoy higher standards of living. These developments place greater pressure on our world’s resources, such as energy, fresh water and food.
Our decades of experience in exploring for and producing onshore natural gas from the mountain foothills of Alberta to the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas give us a wealth of knowledge that we bring to every new project and community.
