Inuvialuit Energy Security Project LTD. (IESPL), a 100% wholly owned subsidiary of Inuvialuit Petroleum Corporation (IPC) is excited to announce that it will begin road construction for the project the week of October 16th. The road construction involves building a 4-kilometer all season road to the M-18 well and placement of a bridge across a creek crossing.

The work planned for this upcoming winter and the road construction will provide over 50 local jobs and over $10 million in local business contracts, the majority of which will be filled by Inuvialuit beneficiaries and Inuvialuit listed businesses. The picture below shows the M-18 access trail which will be upgraded to an all-season road.

The road construction will be conducted over the next 6 months and local residents are to be aware that there will be increased truck traffic during the daytime hours on the ITH between Borrow Pits 177 and 312, and the IESPL project site south of Tuktoyaktuk. Please do not hesitate to reach out to IESPL to discuss any questions or concerns related to the project and planned construction this winter.
