North Yukon Conceptual Oil and Gas Development Scenario and Local Benefits Assessment 3 MB
The Yukon government formed a working group in 2005 with North Yukon First Nations under the Northern Yukon Economic Development Partnership Agreement. In partnership with this group, government commissioned independent industry experts to develop an oil and gas development scenario and local benefits assessment for northern Yukon.
The purpose of the North Yukon Conceptual Oil and Gas Development Scenario and Local Benefits Assessment is to project plausible levels of oil and gas activities and then assess the local benefits and challenges to the Yukon people. This information will be used to guide and inform land use planning in north Yukon, future resource management and development decisions, and provide information that will assist Yukon’s intervention in the regulatory hearings currently underway for the Mackenzie Gas Project.
In the course of this research the government looked closely at the work of the Pembina Institute's report “A Peak Into the Future” who engaged in a similar exercise in relation to a development scenario in the Peel Plateau region of North Yukon. A technical review 208 KB of the portion of the report that pertains to the Peel Plateau has been completed.
Yukon Geological Survey
Yukon Geological Survey has active research programs in several of the sedimentary basins, including Whitehorse Trough, Peel Plateau and Plain, and Bonnet Plume basin. Please visit the YGS website for the latest information and recent geoscience publications related to oil and gas geology in Yukon.
