Oil Sands Escalating Rent

Non-producing continued leases are subject to payment of escalating rent. Escalating rent serves to promote the development of oil sands resources by charging additional rent for continued leases that are not being produced. Lessees cannot simply hold leases without producing. This page contains information and maps relating to escalating rent issues.
