Oil and gas Request for Postings consultation

The Government of Yukon received 15 requests for oil and gas rights located in the Eagle Plain and the Kandik oil and gas sedimentary basins during its Fall 2016 Request for Postings.

The requests fall within the Dawson land use planning region as well as within the designated Integrated Management Areas of the North Yukon Land Use Plan, where applications for industrial land uses and other activities will be considered.

Consultation with affected First Nations and a review by government departments is being conducted and will be followed by a 60-day public review process.
