The rights will be for 25 parcels of land, totalling about 6,800 hectares, in the mature Clarke Lake gas field near Fort Nelson.

With the tenure secured, Deh Tai can apply to the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission for well authorizations to conduct exploratory drilling to assess geothermal potential.

Under CleanBC, the Province says it is working in collaboration with Indigenous peoples to seize new clean energy and economic development opportunities.
