On 11 May 2010 the National Energy Board (Board) announced that it would conduct a review of Arctic safety and environmental offshore drilling requirements (the Arctic Review). The Arctic Review will examine the best available information concerning the hazards, risks and mitigation measures associated with offshore drilling activities in the Canadian Arctic and measures to both prevent and respond to accidents and malfunctions. On 10 June 2010, the Board released, for comment, a preliminary scope and invited registrations from those interested in participating in the review. The Board received more than 110 registrations, 60 of which contained comments. Scope of the Review: The Board thanks those who provided comments. The Board considered the comments received and has expanded the wording within the scope to provide added clarity. The revised scope is attached as Appendix A. Many of the comments received were contemplated within the preliminary scope, such as the long term effects of an incident, occupational safety hazards and technical drilling requirements. A number of comments were related to matters that are outside the jurisdiction of the Board. These include policy and legislative requirements in the Canada Oil and Gas Operations Act and the Canada Petroleum Resources Act, drilling moratoria, exploration licences and Canada's ability to respond to international spills. Many comments were related to Canada's regime for financial liability and responsibility for oil and gas activities. To facilitate understanding of this regime and the Board's role, the Board has prepared Backgrounder - Financial Responsibility and Liability (Appendix B). During the review, the Board will look at all costs and financing of spill clean-up, restoration and compensation for loss or damage. ... (Au)

The Past is Always Present, Review of Offshore Drilling in the Canadian Arctic, Preparing for the Future, follows several months of extensive consultation carried out across the North during the NEB's Arctic Review. During the Arctic Review, many Northern residents stated that if drilling is to be authorized in the unique Arctic environment, it must be done right. The report's key findings include: The root cause of most offshore accidents is the lack of a broadly shared safety culture. In other words, people don't do what they are supposed to do. The NEB has the necessary tools to protect the safety of workers, the public and the unique Arctic environment. Northern residents want their voices to be heard in future decisions about offshore drilling, and they want to be involved in preparing for future drilling projects, in particular in training for emergencies. The NEB has re-affirmed its Same Season Relief Well Policy. Any company wishing to depart from it in a future application for a well would have to demonstrate to us how they would meet or exceed the intended outcome of the policy, which is to kill an out-of-control well in the same season in order to minimise harmful impacts on the environment. During the Arctic Review, industry representatives acknowledged Northern residents' concerns and committed to engaging communities in more meaningful ways, as early as possible in their planning processes. They also spoke of developing and offering appropriate training opportunities to Northerners to help prepare them for employment and business opportunities. (Au)

During the late summer of 2010, a National Energy Board (NEB) team (consisting of NEB staff members and a contractor) traveled to Greenland on the invitation of the Bureau of Minerals and Petroleum of Greenland to observe the offshore drilling activities being conducted by Cairn Energy PLC. The NEB team conducted two observation trips on board the Stena Forth drill ship and the Stena Don semi-submersible vessel in August 2010. The attached Report contains a summary of the team’s observations. The Board has authorized the publication of this Report as an account of the team’s observations. This Report does not reflect the views of the Board nor should it stand as an endorsement of any current or possible processes used or actions taken by any company undertaking drilling activities. The Report is being filed with the Arctic Offshore Drilling Review. (Au)

This publication is the recorded verbatim transcript and, as such, is taped and transcribed in either of the official languages, depending on the languages spoken by the participant at the public hearing. ... I would like to recognize that our Roundtable has representatives from the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, the Yukon, many other locations in Canada, as well as Greenland, Norway, and the United States. The Roundtable is a chance to be together, to share our views on Arctic offshore drilling, to examine and comment on all aspects of the Arctic Review and to ask questions of each other. During the Roundtable we will share knowledge. We will seek to understand each other and we will talk about the information people will want to see in future applications to drill an offshore well in the Arctic. The Roundtable is not an NEB hearing; no decisions about future offshore wells will be made here or in the Board's public report on the Arctic Review which we still plan to release before the end of 2011. ... A key product of the Arctic Review will be a list of the information or filing requirements that the NEB will require before it can make a decision on future Arctic offshore drilling projects. We want to hear what you have to say about that. This is the main concrete thing we need to nail down before the end of 2011 as part of our final public report. On behalf of all the Board Members, I would like everyone gathered here to focus our knowledge, wisdom and energy to help answer the main question: What do Northerners and other Canadians want to see in future applications for Arctic offshore drilling?

WWF-Canada, the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada (CEP), and the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) have suggested areas for inquiry and recommended experts and consultants the Board might retain (letters dated 29 November 2010; 30 November 2010; and 6 December 2010, respectively). The Board appreciates the thoroughness of these recommendations. The Board has decided to engage specialists in four suggested areas of study: 1. oil spill response gap estimates for the Arctic offshore, for the Beaufort Sea and Davis Strait scenarios described in CFIs 1 and 2; 2. assess available oil spill trajectory modeling and modifications that may be required to simulate Arctic oil spill trajectories; and 3. compare offshore drilling regulatory regimes with a discussion of innovations in other jurisdictions including, but not limited to, Norway and the United Kingdom. During the Phase 1 meetings in Inuvik and in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region, Northern residents expressed concerns about the long term effects of artificial islands constructed during drilling activities in the North in the 1970s and 1980s. As a result, the Board will be contracting specialists to undertake research in a fourth area: 4. review of previous studies conducted in the Canadian Arctic offshore, with emphasis on the Canadian Beaufort Sea, for potential geo-hazards that could be encountered while undertaking oil and gas drilling. The reports resulting from the contracts, which the Board expects will be available in May 2011, will be posted on the Arctic Review webpage. Phase 2 - Examination and Consideration of Facts and Information: Phase 2 of the Arctic Review will provide an opportunity for participants to examine and comment on information that has been collected, pose questions, and put forward their views. In addition to the opportunity to provide written submissions throughout the Arctic Review, participants will be able to attend information meetings in various locations, and a roundtable meeting in Inuvik. ... Board staff will hold information meetings in May or June 2011 in Inuvik, Iqaluit, Whitehorse, and Yellowknife. The purpose of these meetings will be to: discuss participants' information needs; answer questions about the role and mandate of the NEB, and the scope of the Arctic Review; provide participants with an overview of the information gathered in the Arctic Review; provide participants with an opportunity to comment on issues being considered in the Arctic Review; help participants who may be interested in planning any questions or presentations for the Inuvik roundtable meeting (see next section); and assist participants interested in applying for funding to attend the Inuvik roundtable meeting. ... Phase 3 – Public Report on the Arctic Review: The outcome of the Arctic Review will be a public report clarifying the filing requirements for future applications for offshore drilling in the Canadian Arctic. ...

L’Office national de l’énergie (l’ONÉ ou l’Office) est l’organisme fédéral chargé de réglementer le forage extracôtier dans l’Arctique canadien. Notre travail est de veiller à ce que toute société qui souhaite effectuer des forages dans cette région ait en place des plans qui permettent de protéger le public, les travailleurs et l’environnement. Si la société ne peut fournir de tels plans, elle ne reçoit pas la permission de forer. ... (Au)
