Industry Consultation Open in Saskatchewan 

Saskatchewan has opened industry consultation on multiple sections of The Oil and Gas Conservation Regulations, 2012 and their associated policies, processes, and forms.
The consultation aims to find ideas for reducing red tape and/or identification of any regulatory barriers for industry, in particular the Ministry asks industry to consider if the regulations:

  • Result in an unnecessarily heavy regulatory footprint;
  • Result in inefficient government process;
  • Are inflexible; Create inequity or unfairness;
  • and/or; Are misaligned with other jurisdictions.

Industry feedback will be accepted up to 25 August 2023. The notification and background for the consultation can be seen in the following location:
