Premier Scott Moe announced the implementation of a series of relief measures for the provincial oil and gas sector, in response to the unprecedented economic downturn resulting from COVID-19. Provincial relief measures by the Government of Saskatchewan include:
- Extending a series of filing and other deadlines to assist the oil and gas sector in stabilizing operations, as their employees’ transition to working from home.
- Extending mineral rights, scheduled to expire in 2020, by one year. This includes rights granted under the terms of an oil and gas lease, exploration license or permit.
- Reducing the industry portion of the Oil and Gas Administrative Levy by 50 percent this fiscal year and delaying the invoicing of the remaining balance until October 1, 2020.
