Alternate Leg ID: MALLIK 5L-38
Area of Operations: Mallik well site, Richards Island, Mackenzie Delta, Northwest Territories, Canada, North America
Dates: February 15, 2002 to Mar 15, 2002
Objectives: Three 1200 m deep wells will be drilled on Richards Island, Mackenzie Delta, Northwest Territories, Canada to explore the presence of subpermafrost gas hydrate. Gas hydrates have been of global interest during the past decade because of their potential impact on energy reserves, global climate change, continental margin slope stability and petroleum drilling hazards.
Type of Activity: Coring
Information to be derived: Morphology
Summary: Gas hydrate production well: 1, 1200m; Scientific observation wells: 2, 1200m each; Sample: 50 pressure vessels and 4 Dewar flasks.
