The Oil and Gas Commission has implemented Noise Control Guidelines.

The guidelines suggest noise control measures and limits for all operations, production facilities and gas processing plants under the Commission’s jurisdiction.

The BC Noise Control Best Practices Guideline is the first edition in BC and provides interim requirements until formal regulation is in place. The OGC will target production facilities and gas processing plants, and, more specifically, compressor, process cooler, pump and electrical generator installations.
