Alberta has a crisis on its hands. A mountain of environmental obligations exists across the Alberta landscape.
These obligations take the form of abandonment and reclamation (and remediation) requirements for the oil and gas sector; a sector under a cash crunch. Low resource prices have pushed many firms into insolvency, leaving many outstanding and difficult questions about how the environmental liabilities will be covered, now and into the future.
Join Keely Cameron and the ELC to discuss the legal and practical challenges faced by the industry, the environment, and the public purse. The breakfast discussion will include a review of the impacts of the Redwater decision (Orphan Well Association v. GrantThornton Ltd., 2019 SCC 5 ) and how the province (and the federal government) could respond .
More information about the speakers and tickets will be available online shortly.
