Judicial Review of and Appeals from Conservation Board Orders
AbstractThis article discusses the remedies that are available to an oil and gas operator who has been adversely affected by an order of the Oil and Gas Conservation Board. It first analyzes statutory rights of appeal and then discusses the availability of the prerogative writs to review an order of the Conservation Board. An examination of the general principles of administrative law outlines the grounds upon which a Conservation Board order can be attacked and illustrates their possible application to orders of the Saskatchewan and Alberta Oil and Gas Conservation Boards.
