Calls for Nominations

Overview

Calls for Nominations/Expressions of Interest, although not required by law, give industry the opportunity to identify blocks of land it would like to see posted for bidding. All nominations received through this process are given full consideration for inclusion in a possible Call for Bids.

The Government of the Northwest Territories is moving to an “Open Call” process, which will allow companies interested in potentially securing oil and gas rights in the Northwest Territories to submit an Expression of Interest for petroleum lands in the onshore regions of the territories.  This is similar to the processes administered in other Canadian jurisdictions, including Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and Yukon.

ITI reserves the right to return to a Call for Nominations process at a later date, but recognizes that a more fluid land tenure process is welcome by both the industry and government departments alike.
