Abstract:
This data set displays the lands contained within Crown dispositions of petroleum and natural gas, oil sands and oil shale rights in the Province of Saskatchewan.

Purpose:
The depiction of the lands within Crown oil and gas, oil sands and oil shale dispositions is intended to provide the oil and gas industry and the public with some basic information about Crown oil and gas, oil sands and oil shale dispositions in Saskatchewan.  Note that in some cases, the area associated with an individual disposition is an indication only that some portion of the Crown petroleum and natural gas, oil sands or oil shale rights within that area are under disposition, or that the Crown owns some portion of the petroleum and natural gas, oil sands or oil shale rights within the highlighted area (at least a portion of which are under disposition).  For example, the Crown interest in a quarter section could relate only to the water covered area within the quarter section, although the entire quarter section is highlighted.

Supplemental information:
The Provincial Crown owns approximately 78% of all petroleum and natural gas rights in the Province of Saskatchewan. Freehold lands comprise 18.5%, Indian reserves hold 2% and the remaining 1.5% are held under Federal jurisdiction. Crown oil and gas, oil sands and oil shale dispositions are administered by the Petroleum Tenure Branch, Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources (ER), Regina, Saskatchewan.

Dispositions of Crown petroleum and natural gas, oil sands and oil shale rights can be purchased at Crown land sales currently held six times per year. Dispositions are of three types:

SPECIAL EXPLORATORY PERMITS (oil and gas, oil sands, or oil shale)
EXPLORATION LICENCES (oil and gas or oil sands)
PETROLEUM AND/OR NATURAL GAS LEASES
