Objective(s): Imperial Oil Resources Ventures Ltd., Aboriginal Pipeline Group, ConocoPhillips Canada (North) Ltd., Shell Canada Limited, and ExxonMobil Canada Properties are continuing baseline studies begun in 2001 as part of the Mackenzie Gas Project. Local knowledge and technical/scientific research, in combination with a synthesis of existing technical information, is being used to develop a suitable knowledge base for planning, assessment of impacts, and development of environmental protection plans. This project is for aquatic studies that will include fish and fish habitat, hydrology, water and sediment quality, and hydrogeology. There are three components; 1) Supplemental hydrology studies in the Production Area; 2) Aquatic investigations at infrastructure sites including barge landings, camps, water supply sources (lakes and rivers), borrow pits and access roads; and 3) Aquatic studies at selected watercourse crossings along the most recent proposed gathering line route alignment.
