      The B.C. government has agreed to a $20 million compensation deal that will see Shell Canada give up a disputed coalbed gas tenure in the remote Klappan region of northwest B.C.

      Shell's exploration of 4,000 square kilometres at the headwaters of the Skeena, Nass and Stikine Rivers has been opposed by the Tahltan Nation since the tenure was awarded by the province in 2004. The company drilled three exploration wells in the first year, which it now intends to decommission as it leaves the area.

      The B.C. government has agreed to provide Shell $20 million in gas royalty credits to compensate for its investment in the Klappan region. That is to be put towards a water recycling project that Shell is building to supply hydraulic fracturing operations on its shale gas developments in the Peace River region of northeast B.C.
