EL494 Surface Water Monitoring Program 2016-2018
Principal Investigator: von Kuster, Jenica
Licenced Year(s): 2017 2016
Summary: The study is to continue to establish natural variations in the surface water conditions within the Exploration Licence (EL 494) area and monitor potential impact of oil and gas exploration activities. Surface Water Quality Sample Collection: Collect surface water samples once, during August 2017, from a reduced number of sampling locations targeted near areas where exploration activities have...


Devonian to Cretaceous Tectonostratigraphy
Principal Investigator: Hadlari, Thomas
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: The objective of this research is to improve the public understanding of geology in the region, including folding and faulting, stratigraphic relationships, tectonic history, and unique hydrocarbon and mineral potential of Devonian strata. This objective includes sharing geoscience information with all interested parties through the production of geology maps or reports and journal papers on the g...


Marine Geohazard Studies in the Beaufort Sea
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2016
Summary: This research will take place onboard the Canadian Coast Guard Service icebreaker Sir Wilfrid Laurier during its annual multi-tasked Arctic Patrol that traverses the Canadian western Arctic. The research shares the logistics with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada researcher Dr. Humfrey Melling. This work builds on marine research expeditions onboard the Laurier in 2010, 2012 and 2013. ...


Colville Hills Bedrock Mapping and Stratigraphic Studies
Principal Investigator: Fallas, Karen M
Licenced Year(s): 2016 2015
Summary: The objective of this research is to improve the public understanding of bedrock geology from the Colville Hills region across the Mackenzie and Peel plains to the Mackenzie Mountains, including folding and faulting, stratigraphic relationships, tectonic history, and petroleum generation. This objective includes sharing geoscience information with all interested parties through the production of b...


Sekwi Mountain Project
Principal Investigator: Martel, Edith
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: The objectives of the Sekwi Mountain project are: (1) Provide an updated geological database for a segment of the Mackenzie Mountains; (2) Assess the mineral potential of the area; (3) Assess the hydrocarbon (oil and gas, coal) potential of the area; (4) Provide tectonic model for the assembly of the Mackenzie Mountains; (5) Produce an user-friendly guide to the geology of the Canol Heritage Trail...


Regional Geoscience Studies and Petroleum Potential of the Peel Plateau and Plain, Northwest Territories & Yukon
Principal Investigator: Zantvoort, Willem
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006 2005
Summary: Peel Plateau and Plain, an area with hydrocarbon potential spanning the NWT-Yukon border, lies southwest of the Mackenzie River, north of the Mackenzie Mountains, and east of the Richardson Mountains. A primary objective of this project is to expand geoscience knowledge to aid in informed land use decisions, as well as stimulate petroleum exploration, industry investment, and economic development ...


Sahtu Gravity Survey, 2006
Principal Investigator: Millman, Peter M
Licenced Year(s): 2007 2006
Summary: Devon Canada’s Sahtu Gravity Survey, 2006 has been designed in an effort to prioritize the seismic data acquisition (seismic lines) for a joint Talisman-Devon seismic program proposed within the project area during the winter of 2006-07. The gravity survey is a reconnaissance tool that allows geophysical data to be acquired over a large area in a short amount of time, and upon processing and inte...


Richardson Mountains Geological Field Program
Principal Investigator: Millman, Peter M
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The aim of the project is to obtain geological information by observing surface features of the Kamik Trend geological formation and to apply this to the reservoir model for the Tuk M18 gas discovery. Transportation to the area will be by helicopter on a daily basis from Aklavik. Information will be gathered by visual observation, photography, manual measurements with handtools (inclinomete...


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 ...


Natural Resource Canada 2D High-Resolution Seismic Surveys at Mallik and Niglintgak
Principal Investigator: Bellefleur, Gilles
Licenced Year(s): 2006
Summary: The Mackenzie River Delta hosts several accumulations of gas hydrates, a possible energy resource present in the form of an ice-like crystalline solid composed of water molecules surrounding natural gas. The Niglintgak and Mallik sites have been the subjects of several research programs, some of which included successful drilling of gas hydrate layers between 900m and 1100m depths. This project is...
