Imperial Oil Resources Ventures Limited (IORVL), on behalf of the Beaufort Sea Exploration Joint Venture, proposes a program and associated support activities that would involve drilling one or more wells within Exploration Licence (EL) 476 or 477 located in the Beaufort Sea in the offshore of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR). These ELs are in water depths that range from 60 m to 1500 m, and lie about 175 km north-northwest of Tuktoyaktuk. These wells would be drilled in water depths of 80 to 850 m.
