Imperial Oil Resources Ventures Limited (Imperial) is planning to conduct the program on, and near, Exploration Licence 446 (Ajurak) in the Canadian sector of the Beaufort Sea. The 2009 Ajurak Field Collection Program (the program) will begin in July 2009, and is scheduled to be completed in March 2010. However if ice and weather conditions are difficult, or the required support vessels cannot be ...

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...

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...

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 ...

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...
Principal Investigator:Kokelj, Steven V Licenced Year(s):
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...
