Environmental Studies

Environmental studies imageAs part of the regulatory application process, the Mackenzie Gas Project is required to study how the proposed project might impact the land. This study is called an environmental impact assessment (EIA). These and other environmental studies are included in our regulatory applications.

This work began in 2001 when we first asked for community involvement to help study these impacts. Our contractors hired local people to carry out some of the environmental field studies.

Information was collected about current environmental conditions ("baseline information"). This work describes the current environment, such as existing plants, animals, animal movements, landscape and water bodies. We continue to collect more data and examine issues such as:

  • Air quality
  • Noise
  • Water resources and fisheries
  • Soil, land forms and groundwater
  • Geology and permafrost
  • Vegetation and wildlife
  • Land uses
  • Heritage resources
