Ambient Noise Study--Phase 2

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Patching Associates Acoustical Engineering Ltd. to extend the learnings from the original Ambient Noise Study to a larger regional development area in northeast BC—focusing on areas where well site development may occur in the future around residential developments. More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website.

Review of Alternative Sampling Design Methodology in Watershed Scale Health Assessment

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Integra Forest Consulting Ltd. to conduct a comparative review of random vs. pour point sampling methodologies for watershed assessments of stream health and riparian function in oil and gas development areas. More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website.

Quantitative Risk Assessment of Typical Structures and Infrastructures Subject to Induced Seismicity

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Geo-Hazard Risk and Dynamics (GHRD) to develop quantitative risk assessment (QRA) tools to assess the vulnerability of assets to induced seismicity. Assets include residential building spread out over a community or region, and linear assets such as bridges, small dams, and pipeline networks. More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website.

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Enlighten Geoscience to conduct pressure, stress and fault slip risk mapping in the Kiskatinaw Seismic Monitoring and Mitigation Area (KSMMA)

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Enlighten Geoscience to increase the understanding of induced seismicity in the Kiskatinaw Seismic Monitoring and Mitigation Area (KSMMA)—including better delineation of pore pressure and effective stress compartments (“terranes”) and how they might be related to seismic activity potential. More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website.

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Simon Fraser University to develop chemistry “baselines” of regional groundwater in Northeast B.C.

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Simon Fraser University to develop chemistry “baselines” of regional groundwater in Northeast B.C., that
can be used to inform groundwater assessments for a variety of purposes. More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website.

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Bridger Photonics and Carleton University to scientifically evaluate the difference between top down and bottom up approaches to measuring methane emissions

The BC OGRIS has provided a grant to Bridger Photonics and Carleton University to scientifically evaluate the difference between top down and bottom up approaches to measuring methane emissions in a B.C. context and provide a baseline data set that may be used in the future to assess trends. More information on this project is available on the Active Projects page of this website.
