Exemption from Reclamation (No Surface Disturbance)

Any physical disturbance of the well or facility site, associated with the cancelled licence, other than a survey, is considered a surface disturbance. This includes stripping or preparing the site, installing a fence or the presence of a pre-existing well or facility.

Effective October 1, 2017, all cancelled well and facility licences will hold a reclamation liability of $0.00; unless the Ministry of Energy and Resources has been advised that there has been surface disturbance associated with the cancelled licence then the reclamation liability will be adjusted to $5,100.00.

If no surface disturbance has occurred in association with a cancelled well or facility licence, the licensee no longer needs to apply for an exemption from reclamation for well sites with no surface disturbance.

Any cancelled sites where surface disturbances has occurred in association with the cancelled well or facility licence are subject to the reclamation requirements of The Oil and Gas Conservation Regulations, 2012. Information on how to reclaim the site can be found in the Directive PNG016: Acknowledgement of Reclamation Requirements.
