The final report and video summary from the Petroleum Natural Gas (PNG) Legacy Sites Restoration Program is now available on the Restoration Reports and Communications page.

Starting in 2020, the Province of BC and the petroleum and natural gas (PNG) sector worked together to collaboratively fund the restoration of over 154 km of historical or legacy PNG activities in northeast BC (NEBC). The initiative was a proof of concept for advancing restoration in areas and manners identified as important to NEBC Treaty 8 First Nations.

In total, nine projects received PNG LSRP funding for one or more of three identified restoration phases--Phase 1: pre-treatment inventory and planning; Phase 2: treatment implementation; and Phase 3: performance monitoring. Through this initiative, employment was provided to the Treaty 8 First Nations as well as their preferred consultants and contractors, totalling 218 individuals.
