Accelerated Site Closure Program
Information taken from The Weekly Policy Bulletin (SARM Communications 1-16-2021)
- Under the Accelerated Site Closure Program (ASCP), the Government of Saskatchewan is now providing landowners with oil and gas sites on their land an opportunity to nominate those sites for consideration for abandonment and/or reclamation work.
- Oil and gas licensees will be able to review nomination information provided by landowners for consideration of inclusion in their plans related to the ASCP. Nomination of a site does not guarantee that it will be abandoned and/or reclaimed under the program.
- ASCP program funds cannot be used by licensees to abandon and/or reclaim sites where the licensee is in arrears to the landowner on surface lease payments, unless there is express consent from the landowner to do so.
- The landowner nomination process is meant to facilitate information sharing between licensees and landowners to identify abandonment and reclamation opportunities of mutual interest.
More information, including how to nominate sites on your land,
can be found on the Accelerated Site Closure Program.
