Natural Gas Fields

The facilities needed at the Taglu, Parsons Lake and Niglintgak natural gas fields will be pre-built in modules. The modules will then be moved by truck and barge to the sites.

Heavy and bulky equipment and supplies from southern locations will be moved to the Hay River and Fort Simpson areas. This includes equipment for development drilling, facility construction and operations. From there, it will be moved by barge down the Mackenzie River and stockpiled at specially prepared sites.

From the stockpile sites, equipment and supplies will be moved to the natural gas fields by barge, winter road or air. Electrical and piping connections to individual modules will be completed on site.

Most wells at the three natural gas fields will be directionally drilled from central locations to minimize impact. Drilling fluids will be contained and disposed of in an approved way. Materials needed for drilling - such as casing strings, mud and cement - will be brought in to each natural gas field as required. The wells at the three natural gas fields will be designed to minimize effects on permafrost.
