Oil & Gas Conservation Amendment Regulations

Proposed Changes to The Oil and Gas Conservation (Miscellaneous) Amendment Regulations, 2017

The Ministry of the Economy is consulting with the oil and gas industry on proposed changes to The Oil and Gas Conservation (Miscellaneous) Amendment Regulations, 2017.

The proposed changes are meant to address required updates to the Regulations to:

  • reflect current definitions and terminologies;
  • remove provisions no longer required as a result of the adoption of the Integrated Resource Information System (IRIS); 
  • provide greater clarity around specific regulations, repeal provisions that are now covered under specific Directives; 
  • clarify the powers of the minister; and
  • revise the submission penalty system for unfulfilled well data obligations in IRIS as well as the failure to provide other information requested by the minister. The Ministry had previously consulted on the revised penalty system for unfulfilled obligations prior to and after the implementation of the IRIS system.

The proposed changes are expected to be presented for consideration by the Lieutenant Governor in Council in September, 2017 with the aim of the new regulations coming into effect in the fall of 2017. 

Further details on the proposed changes are outlined in the:
