Filing Requirements for Onshore Drilling Operations Involving Hydraulic Fracturing

Following the release of the 2011 Arctic Offshore Drilling Review, the National Energy Board made strengthening the regulatory framework in the North a strategic priority. This includes the exploration and development of oil and gas resources in the North. The Filing Requirements for Onshore Drilling Operations Involving Hydraulic Fracturing (Filing Requirements) have been developed to clarify the Board’s expectations regarding information to be included in all future applications under the Canada Oil and Gas Operations Act (COGOA) involving onshore hydraulic fracturing operations. Companies who may be preparing applications to the Board are directed to use these Filing Requirements.

The Filing Requirements have been developed as a part of the NEB’s mandate under the COGOA to promote safety, the protection of the environment and the conservation of oil and gas resources in the North.

The Filing Requirements are available on the Board’s website (www.neb-one.gc.ca) and hard copies may be requested by calling the NEB at 1-800-899-1265.

The Board is committed to continual improvement in the areas of safety and environmental protection and will continue to update these Filing Requirements as necessary.

Yours truly,

Sheri Young
Secretary of the Board
