Dear Ms. Lapointe:

National Energy Board Services Agreement Renewal

Further to recent discussions between our respective organizations, the Government of the Northwest Territories (the GNWT) wishes to renew the services agreement between itself and Her Majesty the Queen in right of Canada as represented by the National Energy Board (the NEB) dated March 14, 2014 for a further term of two years. The agreement expires on March 14, 2016.

As you are aware, since the agreement was executed, the Oil and Gas Operations Act S.N.W.T. 2014, c.14, the Petroleum Resources Act S.N.W.T. 2014, c.15 and associated regulations have been enacted as the "Mirror Legislation" contemplated in the agreement, and negotiations are proceeding in respect of a plan for the transfer of records contemplated by article 11 of the agreement. The GNWT and the NEB have also entered into an indemnity agreement dated September 17, 2014 in respect of such records.

If the NEB is prepared to extend the services agreement pursuant to article 3.8 for a further two years on the same terms and conditions as in the existing agreement commencing March 14, 2016, kindly signify your agreement to such extension by signing the enclosed copy of this letter and returning same to me at your earliest convenience via surface mail or electronic or facsimile transmission.
