The second, and final, period to nominate sites for Federal funding under BC’s Dormant Site Reclamation Program (the “Program”) is soon coming to a close. Indigenous communities, landowners and local governments may nominate, through an online process supported by the BC Oil and Gas Commission, specific dormant oil or natural gas sites (Nominated Sites) in their territory or district, or on their property, for consideration for work to be completed under the Program.
The deadline for nominating sites is September 30th. The opening day for contractors to submit applications to complete the work for these sites is November 1st. Contractor applications that include Nominated Sites in their program of work may be given priority for financial contribution by the Province.
Resolve Energy Solutions, in collaboration with its alliance partner, ELM Inc., is uniquely positioned to help stakeholders looking to nominate lands under the Program, as well as energy companies wishing to complete closure work.
