Workshop: Field Investigations to Evaluate Ice Section on the Drake Subsea Pipeline
The Drake pipeline is located offshore Melville Island, in the Canadian Arctic. It has a length of 1.2 km and was connected to a production gas well in 1978. The well has since been plugged and both the wellhead and the pipeline were abandoned on the seabed. To help guide pipeline design in the future and mitigate environmental risks, the National Research Council and its internally-funded Arctic Program are currently considering a field study on this structure, planned for 2019, to see if the pipeline has sustained any damage by ice action. A workshop will be held on this initiative in St. John’s, Newfoundland, October 27th 2016, 1PM-3PM (local time). Its purpose will be to provide information on the proposed work and gather input from the various stakeholders. Attendance by phone will be possible. Kindly confirm your attendance by October 24th by contacting Paul Barrette at Paul.Barrette@nrc-cnrc.gc.ca
Carleton-led Climate Change Project Receives Approximately $5.5 Million <br/>http://newsroom.carleton.ca/2016/10/19/carleton-led-climate-change-project-receives-approximately-5-5-million/
A network led by Carleton University studying the impact of pollutants on air quality and climate change to develop responsible methods of extracting fossil fuels has received $5.5 million from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC). Funds for the new NSERC FlareNet Strategic Network were announced at Carleton by Science Minister Kirsty Duncan, Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna and NSERC President B. Mario Pinto. “Good environmental policy needs to be based on strong research to measure pollutants and to determine their effects,” said Carleton President Roseann O’Reilly Runte. “Carleton University is proud to lead this work with colleagues, governments and industry across Canada.”
The network will be led by Matthew Johnson, a professor in the research-intensive Faculty of Engineering and Design (FED). “It’s unreasonable to think we can flick a switch and all start using solar power tomorrow,” said Johnson. “We have to make changes in the fossil fuel industry — we have to manage the emissions in the system we have.”
Western Canadian Innovation Offices (WCIO) Nano Funding opportunity
The Western Canadian Innovation Offices (WCIO) Consortium has announced another call for collaborative research between multiple academic institutions and industry in the energy sector.

Building on the success of our funding call from the winter 2015 call for proposals, the WCIO is pleased to announce a new Nano Funding opportunity targeted at small scale projects with the intent of de-risking or otherwise advancing a technology towards commercialization. Projects will be developed via the newly formed WCIO Business Development network.

New Boron Guidelines
Literature indicates that boron is naturally present in soil and groundwater systems from decaying plant material and weathering of boron-containing minerals. Industrial boron sources include fertilizers, herbicides, cleaning agents, produced water and drilling waste. The challenge faced by our team was to find a science-based method to determine natural versus anthropogenic boron concentrations. In some cases, environmental site assessments recommended remedial programs without reliable boron soil concentrations, i.e. without differentiating natural versus anthropogenic boron concentrations, and bioavailability. Natural boron concentrations are only partially available to plants.
