The Mackenzie Delta and the areas along the Mackenzie River
contain large reserves of natural gas.
The three major gas fields discovered to date in the Mackenzie
Delta by the Project owners can produce about 800 million
cubic feet of gas per day. This is enough gas to heat all
the homes in Yellowknife every day for a year.
gas liquids (NGLs) such as butane and pentane, will also
be produced with the natural gas. The estimated production
rate for NGLs is between 12,000 and 15,000 barrels per day.
