Drilling for Oil and Gas within the Corporate Boundaries of a Municipality: What are the Issues?


October 3, 2013 :: Tim Robillard and David Hill
Moderated by Bob Campbell

Resource development inside municipal boundaries might sound strange, but given Alberta’s geological landscape it is rare to find municipalities that don’t have some type of energy project affecting lands within their corporate boundaries. The City of Lethbridge is one of these municipalities so affected. Arguable, the challenge is to ensure impacts are minimized, public safety is maintained and corporate needs are met all the while providing business opportunity and contributing to society’s growing energy demands. How can the balance be struck?

The speakers will present specific plans for further development of existing resource extraction potentially underlying portions of the southwest sections of the municipality. The presentation will cover the details of the drilling, completion, and production plans while also giving a background of the company, the regulatory environment, and future land use matters. The presenters will be pleased to field any questions and provide further information as requested.
