This volume provides an overview of the main body of the Environmental Impact Statement contained in Volumes 2, 3A, 3B, 3C, 4, 5, 6 and 7. It begins with a BRIEF REVIEW, intended to capture the essence of this volume and some of the major issues related to Beaufort development. CHAPTER 1 describes the need for oil, the development plan proposed to extract the oil and the possible Canadian benefits which would result. ... CHAPTER 2 examines the Beaufort Sea-Mackenzie Delta region, the principal area where the ongoing exploration and production related activities would take place. This chapter provides a brief description of its regional features, followed by a summary of possible environmental and socio-economic impacts in the region. CHAPTER 3 considers the Northwest Passage region, the area through which Arctic tankers would travel to deliver Beaufort Sea oil to eastern Canadian markets. CHAPTER 4 focuses on the Mackenzie Valley region, the area which would be most affected by an overland pipeline, another transportation option to deliver oil. At the end of this volume, an APPENDIX outlines the companies involved in the preparation of the Environmental Impact Statement and describes how it was produced. (Au)

Development of the potentially huge oil and gas reserves in the Beaufort Sea-Mackenzie Delta Region will involve a coordinated pool of manpower, equipment, materials and support services. This will require considerable advance planning to ensure that all logistical, technological and environmental concerns associated with development in this Arctic region of Canada are addressed. Volume 2 ... identifies and quantifies the separate components, activities and potential environmental disturbances associated with development in this region. ... The essential elements of this volume are: an explanation of the need for energy and a summary of the development plan to produce oil and gas over the next twenty years; a description of the proposed production and transportation systems and the construction activities required for their development, including specific details of the individual components of these systems and the construction and design modifications required to make them functional in an Arctic setting; and the expected Canadian benefits to be derived from this project.

Volume 3C of the Environmental Impact Statement provides the environmental setting for the Mackenzie River Valley pipeline corridor. The 'Mackenzie Valley corridor' extends from the Mackenzie Delta to the Northwest Territories-Alberta border. It includes the Mackenzie River and lands on the adjacent east bank generally 30 to 100 km wide .... The 'Mackenzie River Valley' is generally used to describe lands drained by the Mackenzie River. Emphasis has been placed on those subjects deemed most relevant for the purposes of assessing possible impacts of pipelining operations on the environment .... (Au)

The purpose of this volume is to assess the possible physical and biological impacts associated with proposed Beaufort Sea-Mackenzie Delta hydrocarbon developments .... Major emphasis is placed on examining the possible impacts of developing the first four offshore oil fields (assumed to be Tarsiut, Koakoak, Issungnak and Kopanoar) and two onshore oil fields (Adgo and Atkinson). ... To transport the oil from the region to markets, two modes of transportation, namely icebreaking tankers and overland pipelines, are under active consideration. Since both have merit, and eventually both may actually be employed, the possible impacts of each are examined. As suggested in the Environmental Assessment and Review Panel (EARP) guidelines, this volume discusses the potential impacts by region ...: the Offshore Beaufort Sea Production Region (Chapter 2), the Onshore Mackenzie Delta Production Region (Chapter 3), the Northwest Passage Transportation Region (Chapter 4) and the Mackenzie Valley Overland Pipeline Region (Chapter 5). ...
