The Mackenzie Corridor, an area through which the proposed Mackenzie Valley gas pipeline would run, comprises the northern extension of the prolific Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. Although exploration has had a long and partially successful history in the region, the province is classified as frontier because of low overall seismic and drilling coverage. The Geological Survey of Canada has recently completed the first major comprehensive exploration play-based petroleum assessment of the region supporting the contention that this is a frontier petroleum province with significant potential.
