Description:
Abstract:
This data set displays the lands contained within designated oil and gas pools in the Province of Saskatchewan.  The information is compiled from the Minister's Orders that establish the individual pools.

Purpose:
The depiction of the lands within oil and gas pools is intended to provide the oil and gas industry and the public with some basic information about oil and gas pools in Saskatchewan.  It should be noted that the target area and well spacing provisions for oil and gas well drilling within the pool boundary may be set out in the pool order associated with the designated pool boundary.

Supplemental information:
Descriptions of pool lands are set out in the Minister's Order that establishes a pool.  All orders are published in the Saskatchewan Gazette.  Because of the method used to generate shape files for oil and gas pools, a separate layer for pools in the unsurveyed portion of the province has been created, labeled Northern Theoretical Pools.  The pools on this layer will be oil or gas pools, and will be identified in the attribute data for the theme or layer.  New pools and revisions to existing pool boundaries will normally have an effective date of the first day of the month.

Time period of content:
Currentness reference:
Data normally updated within 3 days of the first of the month with any changes effective the first of the current month.
