Well Permit Fee Calculator

All well owners must secure the appropriate permit prior to commencing any regulated activity including preparatory work on the well site. This calculator can be used to determine the total fee required with an application for a permit to drill a new well. For permits related to pre-existing well bores, including laterals, conversions, deepening and plugging back, contact the appropriate Oil and Gas Regional Minerals Manager.

Permit Fee Calculator

Enter the proposed True Vertical Depth (TVD) if the well is a vertical well. If the well is a directional or horizontal well, enter the proposed Total Measured Depth (TMD). Click your mouse on the "calculate" button to determine a total fee.
