Our historic oil and gas profile
Our historic track record of success in the oil and gas sector is what separates Morgan from the rest of the market. Take a look at some of our recent milestone projects.
TA9 Engineered Pond Bottom Cleanup
As our client progresses their mining operation, they intend to utilize a portion of the pit to store tailings which requires the installation of an engineered, competent base. A key component of this work is removing slop and unsuitable material from the existing ground that is left over from the previous mining operation.

North Mine Advance – Reclamation Material Salvage
As part of Mildred Lake operations reclamation scope Morgan has been trusted to remove and salvage all surface soils and subsoils in advance of mining operations for the 2021 and 2022 reclamation seasons. Reclamation salvage is critical to our client’s operations as the surface soils must be stockpiled and stored to be reused at the end of the mine life. Morgan has successfully and safely removed and salvaged over 7.5 million m3 of soil during these two seasons resulting in a long-standing partnership.
Mildred Lake Extension - West Access Road
To facilitate the development of a new oilsands mine our client trusted Morgan with the construction of 10 km of access road. Included in this project was the construction of five major water crossings, two of which were large-diameter steel culverts and three concrete bridge structures on steel-driven piles. In addition to the 10 km of high-grade road, Morgan was also tasked with the construction of a permanent laydown area that will serve as the construction management team’s office location and material storage throughout the development of the new mine.
