Accelerated Site Closure Program

Program Details

Updated December 20, 2021

The Government of Saskatchewan announced the third and final phase of the Accelerated Site Closure Program (ASCP), with the allocation of an additional $55 million in funding to eligible companies. Launched in May 2020, the ASCP provides up to $400 million in federal government funding through the COVID-19 Economic Response Plan. The ASCP supports Saskatchewan-based oil and gas service companies to conduct abandonment (clean-up) and reclamation work of inactive oil and gas well sites and facilities across every oil and gas producing region of the province. The program is managed by the Ministry of Energy and Resources and delivered in partnership with the Saskatchewan Research Council. Read the news release.
