As part of B.C.’s efforts to achieve equivalency with federal methane emission reduction regulations, the Commission has introduced a new Public Request for Investigations Form. The form supports recent amendments to Part 5, Division 3.1, Public Requests for Investigation under the Oil and Gas Activities Act, the new Investigations Regulation, and enhances the Commission’s existing regulatory framework governing methane emissions.
The Leak Detection and Repair Data Collection Template is intended to support the new leak detection and repair requirements of the Drilling and Production Regulation that will come into effect on January 1, 2020.
Applicants must submit the form to the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development (FLNRORD) via FrontCounter BC to request FLNRORD’s decision whether to amend or determine compatibility to the established disposition, prior to the commencement of operations.
Forms can be submitted by email to FrontCounterBC@gov.bc.ca or in person to:
FrontCounter BC Fort St. John
10003 – 110 Avenue #100
Fort St. John, BC
