EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately (Jan. 8, 2020)
As part of B.C.’s efforts to achieve equivalency with federal methane emission reduction regulations, the BC Oil and Gas Commission (Commission) has introduced a new Public Request for Investigation Form. The application form is available on the Reducing Methane Emissions page of the Commission’s website.
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.
For additional information regarding the regulation of methane, reduction targets, federal equivalency, and research, please refer to the Reducing Methane Emissions page of the Commission’s website.
