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 ...


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 ...


Permafrost investigations, Mackenzie Delta region, N.W.T.
Principal Investigator: Kokelj, Steven V
Licenced Year(s): 2004 2003 2002 2001 2000 2000 1999
Summary: This study investigates the physical and chemical characteristics of permafrost in the Mackenzie Delta region. The thawing of ice-rich permafrost can result in subsidence or terrain instability. Determination of thaw-sensitive terrain is required to pla...


Mallik 2002 Gas Hydrate Production Research Project
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licenced Year(s): 2008 2007 2002 1998
Summary: Field activities for this project will be covered under various permits being applied for the engineering operations. The Mallik site will be accessed by ice roads from Inuvik. The Mallik wells will be drilled by the Akita 15 rig (local northern company). We expect up to 60 scientists (and 40 operations staff) to be on site at the height of the program. Scientists will be housed in facilities of ...
