[The bulk of this document is an environmental assessment report (EAR) by Golder Associates entitled: Environmental Assessment Report for the Proposed Ranger Oil Limited and Canadian Forest Oil Ltd. P-66A Well Tie-in.] ... The scope of the EAR includes the construction and operation of the following: a wellsite facility at the Ranger et al. P-66A location, including emergency shut-off valve and pigging facilities, and a production facility for gas dehydration; a 27 km, buried steel pipeline extending from the wellsite facilities to the Westcoast pipeline tie-in location near Pointed Mountain, NWT; and, a 27 km, insulated water pipeline to transport produced water to the water disposal facility, sharing a common ditch with the gas pipeline. Associated activities will include: construction and abandonment of various temporary construction work spaces, camps, access roads, staging areas and borrow pits; Westcoast pipelines tie-in; construction and operation of power generation facilities (i.e., small generators); Installation of produced water disposal facilities; and, abandonment and reclamation activities at the conclusion of the proposed project. Community consultation, engineering, environmental and cost considerations were incorporated into the route selection process. From two initial development corridors identified, a single corridor was selected for further evaluation for routing .... Community representatives and elders from Fort Liard and Nahanni Butte visited the local study area via helicopter, and their advice and concerns were incorporated into the planning process. In addition, traditional knowledge (TK) studies were undertaken by Nahanni Butte and Fort Liard, and the TK reports were included in the technical document, and the information incorporated into the EAR .... Representative stream types crossed by the proposed route were assessed for hydrological concerns related to the construction of the pipeline .... Seven vegetation communities were identified along the route .... None of the vegetation habitat types are unique or limited to the project area. No vegetation species listed by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada ... were located in any of the habitat types investigated .... The local study area contains diverse habitat types that support a variety of wildlife species on a seasonal and year-round basis. Ground and aerial surveys were completed to asess the habitat and inventory select species .... The Liard River and its tributaries support substantial fish resources, and Fisherman Lake has been identified as being a valuable fishery by the local residents .... During the archaeological studies conducted in relation to the proposed project, no evidence of previously recorded sites was encountered and no new prehistoric archaeological sites were identified .... The socio-economics of the communities of Nahanni Butte and Fort Liard are discussed, and available opportunities related to the project were summarized. The regional economy of the study area is not well developed. ... [This report also discusses mitigation plans and evaluates cumulative effects and residual impacts likely to remain after mitigation.] (Au)

Chevron Canada Resources (Chevron) and partners propose the tie-in of the Liard K-29 Gas Well for the development of the Nahanni formation reservoir in the Fort Liard area. The proposed development is entirely within the Northwest Territories, and will be carried out in accordance with the applicable legislation, including but not limited to, the Canada Petroleum Resources Act (CPRA), the Canada Oil and Gas Operations Act (COGOA), the Onshore Pipeline Regulations (OPR) and the Mackenzie Valley Resource Management Act (MVRMA). Chevron has extensive engineering and technical expertise and plans to complete the detailed design on the project in house. The expertise of several consulting firms (Geo-Engineering (M.S.T.) Ltd., Golder Associates Ltd., Challenger Surveys & Services Ltd., and Quest an Alliance Corporation) were used to plan this development. Chevron is committed to adhering with the recommendations of these professionals (staff and consultants) to ensure the design, construction and operation of this development project is conducted in an environmentally and economically responsible manner. This Development Plan is submitted to the National Energy Board (NEB) for approval in accordance with the requirements of the COGOA. The Development Plan is submitted in two parts: Part 1 is an outline of the proposed development, and Part 2 contains any confidential technical reports and additional information that the NEB may consider necessary for a complete review and evaluation of the proposed development.

... The Chevron Canada Resources (Chevron) Fort Liard Pipeline Project (the project) comprises the K-29 wellsite, gas hydration facilities and an approximately 36 km pipeline to link the well to the Westcoast Transmission Pipeline. ... A description of the project is given in the Environmental Assessment (EA). This Technical Report provides results of field surveys carried out in May 1999. The goal was to obtain baseline information that could be used, along with other existing information, in the EA, to ensure that potential impacts of the project are avoided or minimized to the greatest extent practicable. Surveys covered the following disciplines: hydrology, soils and vegetation, wildlife, fisheries and archaeology. In addition the Fort Liard Acho Dene Koe permitted Chevron to carry out a route specific assessment for this project with respect to TK. Recommendations concerning potential impacts and proposed mitigation measures that stem from this study are included in the EA. (Au)
