Types of Oil and Gas Activities and the Permitting Process

Understanding the regulatory process for the lifespan of oil or natural gas activities will help landowners make informed decisions as they encounter resource development on their land.

The primary authority given to the BC Oil and Gas Commission to issue permits for oil and gas activities is defined in the Oil and Gas Activities Act. This includes permits issued for wells, pipelines, facilities, roads and geophysical permits. This What We Regulate graphic gives an overview of activities permitted and regulated by the BC Oil and Gas Commission.

Other statutes and regulations provide additional regulatory oversight from exploration through to the decommissioning process. Delegation agreements are also in place to enable the BC Oil and Gas Commission to make decisions on some oil and gas uses according to what has been outlined in the agreements.
