Post-Extractive Futures in Northern Indigenous Communities
Principal Investigator: Hall, Rebecca J
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: Objectives for this project are to: 1) reveal community development goals and strategies in communities navigating the closure of an extractive project through talking circles and interviews; and, 2) facilitate vision and knowledge sharing between and within extraction-affected communities through talking circles, and community presentations.

“Framing” Negotiation: the process of agreement making between multinational corporations and Indigenous communities’ in the resource extraction context
Principal Investigator: Lightfoot, Sheryl
Licensed Year(s): 2017
Summary: The main objective of this research is to generate a better understanding of agreement making in the resource extraction context. It will focus on negotiation as a critical component; existing work tends to emphasize agreement outcomes. Arguably the negotiation preceding agreement making requires further analysis. For example, how factors in this process impact upon or shape the agreement created ...

Social and political perceptions of environmental resources extraction projects in the Sahtu Settlement Area
Principal Investigator: Perombelon, Brice B.P
Licensed Year(s): 2013
Summary: The principal researcher wishes to study the environmental impacts of resources extraction projects (present and future) on the community members. The hope is to do this through a survey of their perceptions of environmental problems caused by resources extraction projects (gas & oil) and see whether they think that these projects will create more problems of environmental degradation (for example...

2006-2008 Aurora-JOGMEC-NRCan Mallik Gas Hydrate Research and Development Project
Principal Investigator: Dallimore, Scott R
Licensed Year(s): 2008 2007 2002 1998
Summary: The objective of this research is to acquire well test data to characterize the properties and concentration of gas hydrates at Mallik. Researchers will collect samples, conduct ground temperature monitoring to evaluate the geothermal regimes controlling gas hydrate stability, and integrate data to better understand gas hydrates in permafrost environments and their potential as a future energy res...

Measuring Permafrost Deformation in the Mackenzie Delta
Principal Investigator: Tait, Matthew P.
Licensed Year(s): 2005 2004
Summary: This study will determine if satellite radar measurement can be used to monitor the natural trend in surface movement in the Mackenzie Delta and the effects of gas extraction in the production leases. The fieldwork will be based near Reindeer Station and...

Investigation of the Long Term Stability of Survey Monuments in Permafrost
Principal Investigator: Tait, Matthew P.
Licensed Year(s): 2003
Summary: Oil and gas extraction in permafrost areas causes vertical surface displacements that have in the past caused serious environmental issues, such as massive subsidence and land slides. Methods of monitoring such vertical subsidence are accurate, but rely...
