The rights to the lands to develop oil sands are leased through Public Offerings, commonly referred to as Land Sales. The Public Offerings schedule is published 2 years in advance by Alberta Energy. This allows potential bidders to strategize accordingly.
Sales of oil sands rights are initiated by posting requests submitted through the Electronic Transfer System (ETS). If no rights have been requested, there is no need to hold a sale. Companies or individuals who wish to acquire undisposed oil sands rights request a posting for a specific sale date to the Crown through ETS.
