2023 IPC Annual Development and Operations Plan - Canadian Forces Base Suffield

IPC Canada Ltd. is planning to drill up to 25 wells (e.g., gas, oil, injection, exploratory) and install associated pipelines, facilities, and utilities (e.g., fuel gas, electrical) within Canadian Forces Base Suffield in 2023. Environmental and archaeological surveys will be completed for all new developments to confirm the absence of sensitive features and/or develop site specific mitigation. The sites will be built to support a drilling rig and rolled back upon completion. The corridors for the pipelines and utilities will be reclaimed once construction is complete. All lands will be reclaimed and surrendered upon exhaustion of the useful life of the associated developments. IPC will also complete upgrades and optimization projects of existing infrastructure and sites, as well as repairs, maintenance and replacements as required by ongoing operations.

Latest update
