Ice rubble generation and its effects on EER systems and ice loading
Principal Investigator: Barker, Anne
Licenced Year(s): 2010 2007
Summary: It has been observed that large rubble fields surround the exploration drilling structures and ground on the seabed. They are beneficial because they transmit some of the ice load to the seabed and preventing ice crushing the structure. However, they present challenges to safe evacuation in the event of an emergency. To evaluate how ice rubble impacts emergency evacuation and to identify methods t...


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...


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 ...

Chevron North Langley Sump Revegetation Project
Principal Investigator: Soppet, Dayle
Licenced Year(s): 2004
Summary: Chevron Canada Resources, representing its joint venture partners, conducted a drilling program on Langley Island during winter 2003. Restoration of the salvaged top layer of material on the sump is complete, and the next stage is revegetation of the sum...

Principal Investigator: Wright, Fred J
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 2004
Summary: This pilot study will address identified gaps in knowledge critical for assessing the impacts of regional oil and gas development in the vicinity of the Mackenzie Delta and Richards Island, with respect to exploration and drilling activities, well-head a...


Devon Canada Corporation - Traditional Knowledge Study for the Proposed Beaufort Sea Offshore Drilling Program
Principal Investigator: Fabijan, Michael F
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003
Summary: This study will focus on collecting information from Inuvialuit elders and harvesters, both male and female. 20-25 members from each community will be interviewed. The area of concern will be the lease area (EL 420) and adjacent lands, including Pelly Is...


Ground-thermal Conditions at Abandoned Drilling Mud Sumps, Mackenzie Delta Region, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: In the Mackenzie Delta region, many of the drilling mud sumps constructed in the 1970s have partially or completely collapsed. The collapse of a sump can release contaminants previously immobilized in permafrost. The long-term degradation of many sumps...
