Natural Gas Fields

Approximately six trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of natural gas has already been discovered in the three main fields in the Mackenzie Delta:

The planning for the development of each of these three fields is in the early stages. Several options for design and location are still being studied. The plans will be finalized after consultation and review with people in communities that may be affected, and with regulators and other groups that have an interest.

The Wells

Before the three natural gas fields can be developed, new wells must be drilled. Most of these wells will be directionally drilled. This will allow several wells to be drilled from one surface production pad. That way, fewer surface areas are needed.

These sites will be designed to minimize permafrost impact.
