Oil & Gas Commission Levy

Oil and natural gas producers pay an Oil and Gas Commission Levy to fund the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission (OGC), which regulates oil and natural gas activities for the benefit of British Columbians. The OGC is the permitting agency for oil and natural gas development in B.C.

The levy also helps fund industry-related research conducted by the B.C. Oil and Gas Research and Innovation Society (BC OGRIS).

As an oil or natural gas producer, you must pay a monthly Oil and Gas Commission Levy and Orphan Site Reclamation Fund Tax Invoice, which includes:
