On 1 April 2014, the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) assumes responsibility for the regulation of onshore oil and gas activities in the NWT outside of the Inuvialuit Settlement Region (ISR) and the Norman Wells Proven Area and other miscellaneous federal lands.

On 4 March 2014, the National Energy Board (NEB or the Board) and GNWT signed a Service Agreement to allow the NEB to provide GNWT with technical services and advice to support projects, and the transfer of records post-devolution.

The NEB is committed to supporting the GNWT and the Government of Canada where it can to facilitate the seamless transition of oil and gas regulatory responsibilities in the NWT.
