Kiskatinaw Seismic Monitoring and Mitigation Area (KSMMA)

Kiskatinaw Seismic Monitoring and Mitigation Area (KSMMA)

On May 14, 2018 the BC Oil and Gas Commission issued a Special Project Order under section 75 of the Oil and Gas Activities Act. The Order was issued to address a series of low level seismic events arising from hydraulic fracturing in a ground motion monitoring area designated as the Kiskatinaw Seismic Monitoring and Mitigation Area (KSMMA). The Commission will continue to research induced seismic events and if other areas show similar trends to the KSMMA, appropriate actions will be taken to address the events.
