The Oil & (and) Gas Industry and Land Use Issues in British Columbia
Keywords:Energy Law, Petroleum Law
AbstractThis article provides an overview of the impact of environmental, land use and project review procedures on the regulation of the oil and gas industry in British Columbia. This article discusses the uncertainty that has been created in the industry from the implementation of provincial government land use, project review and environmental policy initiatives. The authors are of the view that the energy industry must actively participate in the processes introduced by the government if it wishes to ensure that its future in British Columbia is properly looked after. The article chronicles developments up to mid-July 1993.
