Oil Sands Escalating Rent
Non-producing continued leases are subject to payment
of escalating rent. Escalating rent serves to promote the development of oil
sands resources by charging additional rent for continued leases that are not
being produced. Lessees cannot simply hold leases without producing. This page
contains information and maps relating to escalating rent issues.
