(b)  the rehabilitation of contaminated land;
(c)  the purge of pipes; and
(d)  the withdrawal of equipment and facilities;
(9)  a description of the immobilization system;
(10)  if applicable, the home port and the location of the land base for storing material and products necessary for the work;
(11)  a bathymetric map of the area in which the well is located;
(12)  the name and contact information of the enterprises charged with carrying out the work;
(13)  a lateral section indicating, in particular, the anticipated mechanical conditions of the well after the closure and the various geological formations intersected and their respective pressures;
(14)  the type of service rig and equipment to be used and their specifications, in particular, the configuration of the wellhead and the surface casing vent flow;
(15)  the demonstration that, before carrying out the work for the temporary closure, the well did not present any risks within the meaning of the second paragraph of section 23 for the safety of persons and property, and environmental protection;
(16)  the type of plugs used and the anticipated depth intervals;
(17)  for each cement plug, the type of cement used, its density, its additives and their proportions, its setting time, the calculated volume and surplus percentage;
(18)  the method for verifying the position of the plugs;
(19)  if applicable, the list of the planned well logs;
(20)  the meteorological and hydrographic conditions anticipated during the work;
(21)  if applicable, a description of the ice management activities;
(22)  if applicable, the list of licences, certificates and other authorizations to be obtained;
(23)  the list of references used during the preparation of the technical program, in particular, the standards from recognized organizations and guidelines from other Canadian jurisdictions; and
(24)  any other information or document deemed necessary by the Minister.
The classification provided for in subparagraph 4 of the first paragraph must be performed on the basis of the highest risk obtained according to the criteria. For a well with a number of areas, the classification must be performed on the basis of the highest risk obtained, aside from the areas that are permanently closed. If all the deep areas are permanently closed, the shallowest section of the well subject to completion must be used to determine the classification of the well that will be subject to a temporary closure.
