BP Exploration is proposing to undertake the Pokak three-dimensional seismic program this summer, in an 1,800 square kilometre area approximately 180 kilometres offshore the Mackenzie Delta. The program area could expand if environmental conditions are favourable. If the ice and/or weather conditions are not co-operative, such that sufficient seismic data cannot be collected in the period between late July and October 2009, BP will go back into the Beaufort during that same period in 2010.
