Drake Pipeline Study Workshop
October 27, 2016
St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador

The Drake pipeline is located offshore Melville Island, in the Canadian Arctic. It has a length of 1.2 km and was connected to a production gas well in 1978. The well has since been plugged and both the wellhead and the pipeline were abandoned on the seabed. To help guide pipeline design in the future and mitigate environmental risks, the National Research Council and its internally-funded Arctic Program are currently considering a field study on this structure, planned for 2019, to see if the pipeline has sustained any damage by ice action. A workshop will be held on this initiative in St. John’s, Newfoundland, October 27th 2016, 1PM-3PM (local time). Its purpose will be to provide information on the proposed work and gather input from the various stakeholders. Attendance by phone will be possible. Kindly confirm your attendance by October 24th.To register or request more information, contact Paul Barette, [email protected].
