In 2015, SECURE opened five new facilities in strategic areas to meet the needs of our clients: 

  • Wonowon SWD: a fit-for-purpose oilfield fluid processing and disposal facility in the Wonowon area, located near Fort St. John, British Columbia. The facility was designed to accommodate a future expansion in order to reduce truck wait times for our clients while managing products in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner.
  • Big Mountain Creek SWD: located close to Grande Prairie, Alberta, this facility is operated by SECURE to meet an increasing market demand for disposal services in the area. It was designed to accommodate an expansion and reduce truck wait times at SECURE’s neighboring South Grande Prairie facility.
