Objective(s): The objectives of this assessment are to conduct a site investigation to evaluate potential environmental impact associated with daily facility operations associated with the N-01 wellsite and to set up background concentrations of parameters for the lease. In August 2002, an Environmental Site Assessment was conducted. The goal was to visually inspect the lease and, if any areas of concern were observed, field screen soil band obtain samples for laboratory analyses. The results indicated an area of subsidence northeast of the wellhead and elevated metals and salt at the potential former sump. No impact was observed, thus no soil or water samples were obtained for analyses. The 2003 environmental assessment of the wellsite and associated facilities may include: a walk-around of the lease area; identifying additional environmental issues, if any; field screening the soil; and obtaining samples of the soil for laboratory analyses to indicate whether any clean-up is required. Transportation to and from the site will be conducted via helicopter out of Fort Liard.
