Chevron Canada Resources (Chevron) is applying to conduct a winter 2001/2002 seismic program in the Mackenzie River Delta Region of the Northwest Territories. The projects are located on Inuvialuit private 7(1)(a) and 7(1)(b) lands within the Inuvik 1 and 2 Blocks, and Crown land in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR). The Ogruknang 3D project occupies approximately 120 kmē, located to the north of Reindeer Station, while the Tumma 3D program is roughly 69 kmēand is located to the south of Reindeer Station. An additional two 2D lines totalling 29 km in line length are located to the west of Reindeer Station. Pending regulatory approval, activities are scheduled to commence in December. The Inuvik 1 and 2 Blocks are jointly held by Chevron, and BP Canada Energy Company (BP). These two companies are part of the Mackenzie Delta Joint Project Team. Chevron will operate and manage the Seismic Programs located within the Inuvik 1 and 2 Blocks on behalf of their partnership. Inuvialuit Environmental & Geotechnical Inc. (IEG) has been commissioned by Chevron to prepare this project description for the Chevron Canada Resources Winter 2001/2002 Ogruknang and Tumma Seismic Program. The Project Description has been prepared to meet the requirements of the Inuvialuit Lands Administration (ILA) and Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), and fulfill the Operating Guidelines and Procedures of the Environmental Impact Screening Committee (EISC). The proposed project is located on both upland tundra and lowland delta environments within the Mackenzie Delta. The topography in the project area is flat to gently rolling, with moderate to steep slopes adjacent to waterbodies and along the East Channel of the Mackenzie River. Vegetation in the upland area is limited mainly to grasses, shrubs and willows, while the lowland vegetation consists of spruce, willow, horsetail and sedges. Some clearing of trees and tall shrubs will be required on seismic lines located west of the East Channel. (Au)

Chevron Canada Resources (Chevron) is applying to conduct a winter 2001/2002 seismic program in the Mackenzie River Delta Region of the Northwest Territories. The projects are located on Crown land in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR). The Ellice 3D project occupies approximately 199 kmē on Ellice Island. The Mallik 3D project entails the acquisition of 212 kmē of seismic data on Richards Island, and the North Langley 3D program includes 21 kmē on Langley Island. Pending regulatory approval, activities are scheduled to commence in December. The proposed program is a cooperative effort involving three joint venture partners: Chevron, Burlington Resources Canada Energy Ltd. (Burlington) and BP Canada Energy Company (BP). These three companies have formed the Mackenzie Delta Joint Project Team. On behalf of the Project Team, Chevron will operate and manage the Seismic Program, located within Exploration Licences (EL) #394, #393, #384 and #404 on Crown land. Inuvialuit Environmental & Geotechnical Inc. (IEG) has been commissioned by Chevron to prepare this project description for the Chevron Canada Resources Ellice and Mallik Seismic Program. The project description has been prepared to meet the requirements of Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and fulfill the Operating Guidelines and Procedures of the Environmental Impact Screening Committee (EISC). The proposed project is located primarily in the lowland delta environment of the Mackenzie Delta with isolated portions within the Mallik block located in the upland tundra. The topography in the project area is flat to gently rolling, with moderate to steep slopes adjacent to waterbodies. Vegetation is limited to dwarf shrubs and grasses and it is anticipated that minimal clearing will be required along seismic lines. The winter seismic program has been developed with the consideration of minimizing impacts on the environment and land users. The technologies employed during the program mitigate potential impacts on fish habitat specifically. The potential exists for temporary alteration of mature vegetation and wildlife habitat; elevated noise, emissions and traffic levels resulting in short-term wildlife displacement; temporary disruptions to traditional land use in the vicinity of the project and disturbance to permafrost. Protection measures designed to mitigate the potential environmental impacts are presented in this Project Description and are outlined in Table 13. No significant residual impacts are identified. Chevron and its contractors are committed to following these measures in order to minimize the risk of potential environmental impacts and disturbance of culturally and historically significant sites.
