No drill petition protests oil exploration in Lethbridge

A group of Lethbridge residents have delivered petitions opposing gas and oil explorations in their city to the Alberta Legislature.

Sheila Rogers with No Drilling Lethbridge says the petitions were handed over to the city’s MLA, Greg Weadick.

GoldenKey Oil has secured mineral rights from Alberta Energy in an undeveloped area of southwest Lethbridge but has yet to apply to the regulator to drill three oil wells on privately owned land within city limits.

The proposed wells are classified as sour wells, as they would be drilled through a sour geological formation, but would produce from a non-sour zone.
