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...

Beaufort Shelf Seabed Mapping Project

Summary: The Beaufort Seabed Mapping Project is designed to assess the environmental impact of offshore hydrocarbon exploration and transportation on the renewable resources of the Beaufort Sea. This project has 2 objectives: 1) seabed sampling using grab sampler...

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...

Netla and Trout Lakes Geo-Microbial Project
Principal Investigator: Mercredi, Kevin
Licenced Year(s): 2003
Summary: The Microbial Oil Survey Technique (MOST) requires the collection of soil samples from the area. Access to the study area will be via snowmobile and winter roads to established work camps. All sampling equipment will be carried on toboggans by a two pers...

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 ...
