Consent to a dealing

A dealing is any agreement that imposes on any permit participant any obligation that relates to the sale or the proceeds of production where the term of the agreement is for 12 months or longer.

A dealing also relates to an agreement that could be considered not to be on arm’s-length terms, or otherwise not be on a fair market basis.

A dealing relating to a Tier 1 permit has no legal effect if the Minister does not consent to the dealing. Applications must be made within three months of the date of the agreement.

Note: A dealing does not include a transfer of a participating interest, or a mortgage or other charge.

An executed copy of the agreement that requires consent must accompany the application.
