markets // Oil & Gas


Hi, I’m Rob Anderson, Director of Projects and Partner here at Trace Associates. Clients want fair value for the services they get. They want things done on time, on budget, and at a high level of quality. To achieve that requires a challenging balancing act, but one made possible thanks to our years of experience. We’re comfortable thinking outside of the box to provide clients with the best solutions and get sites to closure quicker.

Our teams work across the Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream energy sectors and focus on cost control and safe project execution. Our people know the oil and gas business well and many are landowners outside of work. We know how to move sites to closure quicker and ensure stakeholders are satisfied along the way.

what our clients are saying

“We like Trace. We like Ron, we like Nick, and we like the relationships we’ve built on our projects with them. They have a suite of services that cover the ecological and environmental, and they have demonstrated that they understand what needs to be done, aren’t doing unnecessary work, and they make sure it gets done. Ron told me that the Trace motto is to 'consult better.' This motto is reflected in the service they provide.”

Clark | Qualico Communities

“I appreciate Trace’s candidness, honesty, and straightforwardness. The communication is strong, they are always professional, and they stay on point. They’re good at what they do and are always available when I need them.”

Confidential Client

“Trace provides a level of personal service that we don’t get from other companies. We get straightforward, open communication with Project Managers, including frequent touch-points. Trace always does what they say they are going to do.”

Neil Reid | Midstream Energy Client

“I choose Trace because of their expertise and clarity on what they will deliver, and my trust in them. We share similar values of honesty and communication. They’re very thoughtful in what they do and their expertise is very appreciated. Nothing they do or say leaves you scratching your head.”

Warn Franklin | works with Ron at Trace

“I value our relationship with Trace and can see it continuing into the future.  Having a third party come in to do environmental inspections is very helpful and gives added focus on areas that might otherwise be neglected due to the busy nature of the business. Trace's expertise in the Environmental Consultant field helps keep NorSask on a path of continuous improvement. We very much appreciate the proactive approach that Trace takes to meet our needs.”
