The Oil and Gas RECLAIM Model has been developed to assist the GNWT, the Land and/or Water Boards, and other stakeholders (typically proponents) to estimate closure and reclamation costs at oil and gas exploration and production-sites in the Northwest Territories (NWT). This User Manual includes descriptions of:
Considerations for closure cost estimates in northern settings (Section 2);
How different parties may approach the cost estimate for a given site (Section 3); and
The RECLAIM Model and guidance on how to use it (Section 4 and 5).
