ACTIVE OIL AND GAS TENURE TITLES MAP
NORTHEASTERN BRITISH COLUMBIA
(Current status of tenures as of April 5, 2010)
Below is a map of northeastern BC showing a vast area of active oil and gas tenures. The area is highlighted by a rectangle to scale in a map of BC to the right (about 400 kilometers in width by 700 kilometers in length).
These tenures now cover a land mass of almost ten percent (10%) of British Columbia's 95 million hectares.
The upper portion (yellowish area) is the Horn River Basin area where much of the new gas speculation, development, and hydro-fracking interest is taking place.
