Apply to Amend Well Logging Requirements

A well operator in Saskatchewan may apply for authorization to amend their logging requirements as outlined in Section 90 of The Oil and Gas Conservation Regulations, 2012.

1. Guidance

The Ministry of the Economy's Integrated Resources Information System (IRIS) automatically assigns logging requirements based upon answers to disclosure questions provided at the time a well licence is issued.

An application to amend logging requirements should be made before any drilling activity takes place.  However, in situations where it becomes technically impossible to obtain logs due to drilling issues, a request for a waiver can be made.

Well logging obligations may be updated at any time.  Check IRIS's obligations screen regularly for any new well logging requirements. 

For more information, see:
