(307) 439-5439 | info@ags-west.com

Advanced Geotechnical Solutions is a full-service geotechnical engineering company specializing in state-of-the-art exploration and engineering analyses to better understand soil and rock prior to construction. A more in depth understanding of these characteristics allows us to make accurate analyses and recommendations. These analyses and recommendations ultimately lead to safer and less expensive projects to construct. Lowering the cost and risk of the project is more important now than ever before with fewer projects and smaller construction budgets.

We perform geotechnical analyses for a wide range of projects including commercial, industrial, roads and parking areas, energy related developments, and single to multi-unit residential projects. We routinely perform advanced analyses for slope stability of natural and manmade slopes and finite element analyses to determine settlement and stress distributions below infrastructure.

We also perform construction observation once the project transitions from design to construction to help ensure the plan is implemented and potential issues are addressed in a cost effective and safe manner.

Amoco Reuse Agreement

Suite 249

(307) 472-5595 | renee@arajpb-casper.org

The former Amoco Refinery, located on the westerly side of Casper, was the lifeblood of the community’s economy for over 60 years.  Since its beginnings in the early 1900’s, it provided thousands of  well-paying jobs and refined petroleum products to Casper and the nation.  Amoco employees participated in local affairs and were a vibrant, active part of the local citizenry.  However, consistent with practices in the early days, waste generated at the refinery was either buried or allowed to discharge directly to the North Platte River or into the groundwater below.  Unfortunately, these early practices have now left the need to clean up the site.

In 1998, several significant events occurred relating to the Amoco refinery property.  The Community Facilitation Initiative  (or CFI) and Homework Group were established in the spring of 1998.  Working with Amoco officials, these groups developed a conceptual plan as to what the refinery property could look like once it was cleaned up and the lands redeveloped.

Also in 1998, a Consent Decree was signed between Amoco and the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, (or DEQ), which dealt with the requirements set by this State regulatory agency on Amoco regarding the cleanup of the refinery site.  Included within these requirements was the mandate that the cleanup standards to eventually be used for site cleanup be decided upon through an open, collaborative process.

Thirdly, during September of this same year, the Reuse Agreement between Amoco, the City and the County was signed. Finally in this same year,  the City and County formed the Amoco Reuse Agreement Joint Powers Board to implement this Reuse Agreement with Amoco.

In the fall of 2010 Congress passed the Small Business Jobs Act, a $42 Billion program which allocated $1.5 billion for states and cities to establish Small Business Initiative programs. Seventeen Wyoming municipalities formed a coalition to submit an application to the United State Treasury to bring these funds into their communities for local businesses. The result was the formation of Wyoming Smart Capital Network, LLC, a company contracted to implement the program.

Success Stories

Frog Creek Partners

Frog Creek Partners is a company that manufactures and promotes environmental technological solutions to protect and restore local watersheds through community involvement.

Frog Creek Partners’ first real break came when we succeeded as a finalist in the 2016 Casper Start-up Challenge. The process of preparing for and presenting my idea to the IMPACT 307 judges helped solidify my initial business plan and offer validation that I was on the right track. After moving into the business incubator, I used the business resources offered to me by IMPACT 307. I firmly believe that the Casper Start-up Challenge and IMPACT 307 helped me get my business off of the ground. Frog Creek Partners’ has since graduated from the incubator and we are in a large manufacturing space now. Thank you to the fine folks at IMPACT 307 for believing in me and providing the resources to help my company grow.
