Northeastern BC Climate Risk Assessment for the Oil & Gas Sector

2015 — Fraser Basin Council

Natural gas development in Northeastern British Columbia is dependent on a number of climate-sensitive resources and infrastructure, such as water, pipelines, drilling pads and roads. The sector adjusts operations in response to changes in extreme weather and other factors; the challenge now is to make specific plans to adapt to future changes in climate.

This report explores climate change in Northeastern BC and the related impacts, risks, opportunities and next steps for the oil and gas industry, based on interviews and focus group sessions with those inside and outside the sector.

The report was prepared by the Fraser Basin Council, with support from Natural Resources Canada, Adaptation Platform, and from the BC Ministry of Environment, Climate Action Secretariat.
