Welcome to the Oil and Gas Appeal Tribunal

The Oil and Gas Appeal Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial agency that was established under the Oil and Gas Activities Act, S.B.C. 2008, c. 36. 

The Tribunal hears appeals from decisions of the Oil and Gas Commission which include certain orders, declarations, findings of contravention, administrative penalties and permitting decisions in relation to an "oil and gas activity" such as geophysical exploration, the construction or operation of a pipeline, road construction, and the production, gathering, processing, storage or disposal of petroleum, natural gas or both.  For a more detailed list of the decisions that may be appealed to the Tribunal, click here.

The Tribunal may also hear appeals from decisions that have undergone a review by a review official under section 71 of the Act
