2006 Summer Field Geotechnical Investigation Program – Gwich’in Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Martin, Sandy D
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objective of the proposed summer geotechnical investigations is to gather information on soil and ground conditions adjacent to a proposed pipeline right-of-way in the Mackenzie Valley. The gathered information will be used in preparing subsequent regulatory applications. The proposed investigations will focus on four potential borrow sources, which will yield information for use in determinin...


EnCana Corporation Richards Island 2006 Summer and Fall Field Assessment Program
Principal Investigator: Marken, Sandra L
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The objective of the study is to determine: the best access for a drilling and development location on Richards Island, which lakes may be suitable for water withdrawal, and geotechnical baseline conditions along a proposed pipeline corridor, proposed gas conditioning facility location, and possible quarry site. The bathymetry program will use a portable zodiac and bathymetry equipment to asses...


Bathymetric and Shallow Sediment Core Sampling in McKinley Bay, NWT
Principal Investigator: Hammer, Lorne
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: Shell Exploration and Production Company (Shell) is proposing to mobilize the Mobile Offshore Drilling Unit (MODU), Kulluk, from McKinley Bay, Northwest Territories to offshore Alaska, to initiate preparations for an offshore exploration drilling program to be carried out over the next several years. The Kulluk has been inactive and moored in McKinley Bay since 1993. Prior to that, the Kulluk had ...


Enhanced Sewage Treatment Using Aeration Technology
Principal Investigator: Bujold, Ron
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: Sewage and wastewater treatment can be expensive and problematic in northern communities. Technology hitherto untried in the North will be tested to determine efficiency and the potential benefits to northern communities in terms of reduced economic burden and increased environmental benefits. Samples will be collected from the Rae and Edzo wastewater treatment facilities for baseline informati...


2006 Biophysical and Reconnaissance Studies in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Martin, Sandy D
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The proposed biophysical and reconnaissance studies are aimed at collecting data to assess the feasibility of constructing a potential oil and gas pipeline for the Mackenzie Gas Project. The 2006 work programme includes: route and site reconnaissance; aquatic and terrestrial studies; and engineering, geological and geophysical studies. Route and site reconnaissance comprise: verification of the ...


Norman Wells Straw Bales and Reflective Surface Test
Principal Investigator: Graburn, Larry
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005
Summary: The objective of this project is to test the thermal properties of straw bales and reflective surfaces for use on permafrost slopes along a potential pipeline route in the Mackenzie Valley. These materials might be used in conjunction with or as alternatives to wood chips to protect the exposed slopes from surface erosion and reduce the rate of thawing. In mid-February 2006 a bulldozer and brush c...


Inventory and assessment of drilling waste sumps in the Mackenzie Delta of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region
Principal Investigator: Quaife, Ron
Licenced Year(s): 2005
Summary: This research will help address growing concerns over the use of sumps as a disposal option for drilling waste in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region and is a first step in evaluating the environmental conditions at historic sump sites. The specific objectives of this research include: 1) conducting an inventory of all known specified drilling sump locations within the ISR (including location, last ...

2005 Route and Site Reconnaissance in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Povey, Andrew
Licenced Year(s): 2005 2004 2003 2002
Summary: The objective of this study is to complete several helicopter flights for the purposes of pipeline and site reconnaissance and geotechnical observation. The activities will be conducted to: review the proposed location for a potential gas pipeline through the Sahtu Settlement Area (SSA), including identifying areas where mitigation measures may be required during or after construction such as stee...


Assessment, Remediation and Associated Services for Former Uranium Mines, NWT
Principal Investigator: Wiatzka, Gerd M
Licenced Year(s): 2009 2008 2007 2006 2005
Summary: This research program is a continuation of the environmental assessment of the existing conditions at and near the Port Radium site. Information collected during this study will add to the base of existing information and aid in refining the final decommissioning plan for the site. The work will be done through manual sampling and measurement; no heavy equipment or drills will be used. Sampling...
