H-4.2, r. 1 - Regulation respecting petroleum exploration, production and storage in a body of water

Full text
31. The application for authorization or approval of an activity, except the authorization for geochemical surveying and the approval of the petroleum enhanced recovery project, must be accompanied by a safety and community involvement program detailing elements likely to have an impact on the safety of persons and property.
The safety and community involvement program must include, in particular,
(1)  a plan at a scale of 1:500 showing the layout of the activity site, including, in particular,
(a)  the dimensions of the site;
(b)  access roads;
(c)  the actual or proposed location of the casing head and the bottom of the wellbore covered by the authorization or approval application; and
(d)  existing or proposed storage equipment, installations, infrastructures and basins;
(2)  a description of the mitigation measures that will be implemented to take into account the harmonization of land use and minimize disruptions for the local communities;
(3)  an emergency response plan compliant with CSA Standard Z731, Emergency Preparedness and Response, published by the Canadian Standards Association;
(4)  a plan for communication with the local communities revised by the monitoring committee;
(5)  an estimate of the economic benefits for the region; and
(6)  any other information or document deemed necessary by the Minister.
For the application for a geophysical surveying authorization, the safety and community involvement program must also include a schedule of navigation and the period during which it will take place and a map showing routes. However, it does not have to include the elements provided for in subparagraphs 1 and 3 of the second paragraph.
The Minister may exempt the holder from providing a safety and community involvement program if the holder demonstrates that the duration and scope of the activity do not justify such a program.
