May 2004 Pre-Tenure Plans for Oil and Gas Development in the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area

On May 20, 2004 Minister Abbott approved the updated and revised Pre-Tenure Plans for Oil and Gas Development in the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area. This document provides management direction for any new tenures located in the Halfway-Graham, Besa-Prophet, Muskwa-West and Sulphur/8 Mile pre-tenure plan areas (see Figure 1 for more details).

Pre-tenure planning is being completed in stages. All the plans are being consolidated into a single binder to reduce duplication and facilitate inclusion of additional information for specific chapters of the plan in the future. It is anticipated that new information from ongoing wildlife research, innovative development techniques, new discoveries and other sources will lead to incremental plan amendments over time. Also, consideration is being given to revising the Upper Sikanni Management Plan and including it in this binder.
