Implementation of the Norman Wells Project Impact Funding Program
An EvaluationMicroform - 1987
The Norman Wells project involved a ten-fold expansion of the Norman Wells oilfield and development of a 324 mm (12 inch) pipeline extending 870 km south to the Zama terminal in Northern Alberta. The project was approved in July 1981, construction began in January 1983 and the pipeline shipped its first oil in May 1985. At the time of the project approval, a special benefits package was announced to foster native participation and to manage the socio-economic effects of the project. This paper assesses the effectiveness of the planning and administrative arrangements for the key impact funding initiatives that dealt with community and social development and project planning and monitoring. The analysis is concerned solely with institutional mechanisms and makes no attempt to evaluate the merit or outcomes of the subject initiatives.
