Otherwise Flared Solution Gas Royalty Waiver Program (OFSG) Wells

The Department of Energy introduced the OFSG program to encourage the reduction of solution gas flaring in the province. For those wells approved under this program, the department will waive royalty on uneconomic solution gas and gas by-products that would have normally attracted a Crown royalty charge.

Certain wells were pre-qualified for the OFSG program and will not need to apply to the department to seek OFSG program acceptance. The initial list of pre-qualifying wells was published in the June 1999 Mineral Operations Information Bulletin. This listing has been updated to reflect changes outlined in the August 2000 Information Bulletin. The listing may be updated periodically due to amendments and the ongoing validation process of the department's database.
