In the following pages, you’ll find a brief overview of some of the information landowners need about oil and gas development on or near their land. There are hundreds of different questions — and answers — with complex regulations and information to digest. The following questions are just a sample.
Alberta’s energy development landscape is a maze of regulations and complex relationships. The Landowners’ Guide to Oil and Gas Development provides advice on negotiating the best relationship possible between industry representatives who live and breathe this subject matter and property owners or communities that may be facing it for the first time. It also provides accessible advice on some of these complex questions:
- If a permit agent knocks at your door and says a company wants to conduct seismic exploration on your land, how do you decide whether to grant permission?
- If a land agent tells you a company plans to drill a well or put a pipeline on your land, what do you need to know before you start negotiations? How do you decide whether any special conditions are needed in a surface lease or right-of-entry agreement?
- If there are plans to build a well or pipeline near your home, is the company obliged to tell you or consult with you?
