Principal Investigator: Marshall, John J (1)
Licence Number: 15312
Organization: ConocoPhillips Canada
Licenced Year(s): 2013
Issued: Aug 02, 2013

Objective(s): To ensure there is no unforeseen debris in the water around the caissons prior to moving; and to see if the caissons could be moved close enough to shore to offer a benefit to mitigate shore erosion.

Project Description: The objective of this project at Thetis Bay is to ensure there is no unforeseen debris in the water around the caissons prior to moving. The objective at Tuktoyaktuk is to see if the caissons could be moved close enough to shore to offer a benefit to mitigate shore erosion.

One small bathymetry vessel would be used in the program and one large Northern Transportation Company (NTCL) mainline tug, which would be used for floating accommodations only. NTCL will also supply a barge to use as a support platform for the program.

ConocoPhillips has already received support for this program from Environmental Impact Screening committee, Hamlet of Tuktoyaktuk, Tuktoyaktuk Hunters and Trappers Committee and Community Corporation

The fieldwork for this study will be conducted from August 15, 2013 to August 31, 2013.
