Are there specific areas where new requirements apply?

As part of this agreement with the Blueberry River First Nations, there are pre-determined areas where existing surface disturbances will be limited (referred to as ‘Area 2’ in the bulletin) or new surface disturbances will require offsets (Areas 1 and 3). Tenure requests and oil and gas activity applications within these pre-determined areas will be reviewed by members of the Agreement, to ensure oil and gas development occurs in a sustainable and collaborative manner. This Agreement should lead to better collaboration between government, First Nations and industry and is expected to improve relationships and create greater certainty for industry investments over the longer-term.
