The Commission uses contractors to complete work on orphan sites and they are selected through a Request for Standing Offer on BC Bid. Successful Contractor(s) who establish a Standing Agreement for services with the Commission will be selected for existing and future opportunities at the discretion of the Commission.
It is anticipated the term of the contract will be for one year (commencing following the awarding of the Standing Offers) with an option to renew for two additional one-year terms at the discretion of the Commission. Pricing is to be firm for the contract term. Should the Commission choose the renewal option; the Contractor(s) will be contacted prior to the renewal period to discuss any changes to the contract. Any renewal pricing submitted will need to be firm for the renewal term.
The decision to use any Standing Offer will rest with the BC Oil and Gas Commission with respect to site deactivation, site maintenance, well suspension and abandonment, surface equipment decommissioning, remediation and reclamation services. A Standing Offer is not a contract. A contract is created only when the BC Oil and Gas Commission issues a Draw-Down of services under the Standing Offer. A General Service Agreement will be used to execute the Draw-Down of services.
