Geoscience BC is pleased to issue this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Horn River Basin Aquifer Assessment Project. Specifically, Geoscience BC is looking for proposals on the petrographic characterization of drill cuttings, and the hydrogeologic characterization of Horn River Basin Aquifers.

Background on the Horn River Basin Aquifer Project New shale gas developments in the Horn River Basin of northeastern British Columbia require water sources and disposal zones, in support of drilling and completions operations. Geoscience BC is working with the Horn River Basin Producer's Group (HRBPG) to characterize subsurface aquifers throughout the area. Geoscience BC and the HRBPG are jointly funding specific aquifer geoscience projects, the results of which will be shared initially amongst the entire group and ultimately made publicly available. Project management and overall data compilation / interpretation have been assigned to Petrel Robertson Consulting Ltd.
