Following the passage of Bill 37, exciting changes are coming, including a new name and expanded mandate! In addition to our current responsibilities with respect to oil, gas and geothermal development, we will soon become the single-window regulator for the production of hydrogen, ammonia and methanol; have an expanded role in carbon capture and storage, and we will be known as the BC Energy Regulator.

The BC Oil & Gas Commission offers access to a variety of online reports.

Commingling Areas [BCOGC-44791]

Commingled production is the flow of fluids, originating from two or more pools, in an unsegregated manner to a well measurement meter. Production may be commingled down-hole in the well-bore or at the surface prior to metering. Commingling may occur at any point in the life of a well, from initial design to a re-completion late in the life of a well. Commingling is a method to maximize the total recoverable hydrocarbons from a well. Commingling provides an opportunity to produce zones that may be individually uneconomic to produce, either initially or after having declined to marginal rates. Commingling may also help to lift liquids to the surface that would otherwise hinder production.
