Directive 013 – Optional Annual Inspections


In this bulletin, the AER announced the release of a new edition of Directive 013: Suspension Requirements for Wells. The Directive was updated to give licensees that have an AER-approved closure plan the option of performing annual inspections of low-risk wells that have been inactive for ten or more years instead of conducting downhole suspension and performing periodic pressure testing.

No other requirements were changed.
