Land Owners

75% of mineral rights in Saskatchewan are held by the Crown. This means that farmers, ranchers, and other landowners who do not own the subsurface rights have little say about the oil wells on their lands. When an oil company wishes to drill on your land they will send a 'land man' to negotiate a surface lease. At this point a landowner can negotiate over compensation, lease location, lease maintenance, remediation of the lease after drilling or in the case of a spill, abandonment and restoration practices, and much more. If the landowner does not agree to the terms of the lease the company can nevertheless obtain a right of entry to access their subsurface minerals.

Please review this excellent resource to help you negotiate fair treatment for yourself and your lands.


The surface rights and landowner associations listed below are providing self-help in negotiating leases and dealing with the impacts of infrastructure. Groups listed below are listed as resource hubs and are not directly affiliated with this page.
