ELM is the only supplier in the Abanondment, Decommissioning and Reclamation business to offer an exclusive “Cost Cap” solution. In combination with our partner, Aon Global Environmental and Risk Solutions, ELM has created a proprietary cost overrun insurance offering.

Essentially, the elm program assesses the potential risk of cost overrun during project execution and applies a risk transfer solution for outliers which enables our clients to avoid the burden of enormous unexpected additional expense being added to a company’s originally planned budget.

The ELM solution is an integrated liability program designed to provide comprehensive coverage at the site level and offers 100% cost overrun protection and better cost assurance for the program.

ELM's Eco-Solution™, in co-operation with its alliances and partners (and their exclusive proprietary patent technologies) is able to deliver environmental solutions to treat solid and liquid wastes produced across oil and gas, industrial and mining industries. This includes the reduction of H2S, wastes from activities such as evaporator blow-downs, industrial waste water, and oil and gas production.

As a result of applying ELM's Eco-Solution™, our clients will realize reduced environmental liability associated with dewatering tailings, sludge, waste ponds, and high temperature water treatment. In addition, our clients will benefit from reduced costs in the areas of controlling solids, disposal, water treatment, water sourcing, and chemical usage.
