The Manitoba Surface Rights Association

The MSRA was formed in 1978 and has been instrumental in ensuring that Oil and Gas Surface Rights are dealt with in a fair and equitable manner. The MSRA membership is comprised of Manitoba landowners who have oil and gas related surface leases on their property.

Negotiating a surface lease for a well site or a flow line may be every day business for a landsman but for many landowners it occurs rarely. Developing a surface lease that protects  landowner’s interests, has fair compensation levels, includes well abandonment and site reclamation clauses is a main focus of the MSRA.

Our main goals

  • Work cooperatively with government, the oil industry, and landowners to develop economically and environmentally sustainable practices that will benefit everyone
  • Provide landowners/MSRA members with information on various aspects of Surface Rights issues.
  • Inform and lobby government regarding mineral and surface lease ownership issues.
