Oil & Gas


Oil & Gas

ABR has been effectively serving oil and gas industry clients in Alaska since 1979. Our teams of wildlife and fisheries biologists, vegetation, wetlands, and landscape ecologists, land rehabilitation and restoration experts, and NEPA practitioners have performed on virtually every major development on Alaska’s North Slope. We have conducted studies and provided expertise on threatened and endangered species in Cook Inlet and along proposed pipeline corridors in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest. We recently completed 25 years of post-spill studies in Prince William Sound for both ExxonMobil and the EVOS Trustee Council following the Exxon Valdez oil spill.

Our teams also include experts in new and emerging technologies, such as remote sensing and spatial analysis, thermal imaging and motion-activated cameras, radio and GPS telemetry, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and other automated data collection techniques. ABR has worked collaboratively with the oil and gas industry, state, federal, and municipal resource agencies, and Alaska Native communities. Our record of involvement in long-term monitoring projects, our long list of returning clients, and our extensive publication history are testaments to our leadership in environmental consulting for the oil and gas industry.

Our services include:

  • pre-development baseline surveys for wildlife, fish, vegetation, wetlands, habitat, and landscape
  • mitigation planning and permitting services
  • threatened and endangered species and subsistence resource expertise
  • construction and post-development monitoring and impact assessments
  • ecological restoration and land rehabilitation
  • long-term studies of ecosystem health and population monitoring of species of conservation concern
