Report summary

The Beaufort Mackenzie Basin lies in the Canadian Arctic and stretches in a broad strip from the Alaskan border in the west to the far reaches of the Beaufort Sea. Exploration in the basin faces several key challenges associated with remote Arctic conditions including high costs environmental issues and seasonal access. Oil and gas discoveries have been made however only a handful of onshore gas finds have been deemed commercial thus far. Activity in the basin has been slow in recent years and this trend is likely to continue into the near future as breakeven prices need to come down.
