BROSSARD, QC, Nov. 8, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - (CNSX: SQX) - The management of Squatex Energy and Resources Inc. (Squatex) is dissociating itself from the alleged legal actions recently taken against the Government of Quebec concerning the regulation of hydrocarbons.
It was publicly stated that this lawsuit was made "on behalf" of Quebec's oil and gas companies and that it was supported by the Quebec Oil and Gas Association (QOGA). However, it should be noted that Squatex is not part of the QOGA, has never been consulted and also dissociates itself from the aforementioned support for the prosecution.
Let a chance to the new government
The new Quebec government has just taken office and it is normal for its members, and particularly the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, to take the time to get to know their many files and to position themselves on various societal issues, including the exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons.
The management of Squatex means to the Government of Quebec, the municipalities as well as the citizens that it intends to continue working with its stakeholders as well as the various levels of government to implement projects that are part of a reasonable, structuring and sustainable management of Quebec's oil and gas resources.
To this end, Squatex will soon be asking for a meeting with the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources to discuss issues related to the oil and gas sector and, in particular, to review certain regulations presented in June by former Minister Moreau which seem inappropriate and that deserve to be re-examined and modified.
Squatex's management firmly believes that it is imperative that the development of hydrocarbons in Quebec be done in accordance with the culture and traditions of Quebec, particularly in terms of consultation and social dialogue.
Indeed, this tradition of dialogue, rooted in the history of Quebec, has demonstrated that it allows the establishment of sustainable national objectives and consistent plans for government action.
