A new program has been announced to resolve community concerns about traffic, noise, dust, and environmental issues linked to the oil and gas industry.

Energy, Mines, and Petroleum Resources Minister Blair Lekstrom says the Province has created a package of reforms.

The programs and regulations are aimed at improving industry and resident relations.

Lekstrom made the announcement at the Northeast B.C. Energy Conference on Thursday afternoon.

Lekstrom says the programs and regulations are aimed at improving industry and resident relations. The changes will reduce the practice of flaring, which is the burning off of unwanted gas or liquids released by pressure relief valves. Nearby residents have voiced concerns on the effect of flaring on their health. Many places that produce oil and gas have stopped the practice, or plan to do so, including oil-rich Russia.
