A change to this document has been announced. The effect of this change is notably to make various amendments to conform with the Act ending exploration for petroleum and underground reservoirs and production of petroleum and brine (CA-QC-SQ2022,c10,s1) which prohibits the exploration and production of petroleum and brine in the province. It revises the definition of "drilling site" to exclude zones used to explore for or produce petroleum, natural gas or brine and removes provisions governing the exploration and production of petroleum and brine, including fracturing operations. The first effective date of the document that makes the change has not yet been announced. More information about the change, including any additional effective dates, is available here.
