New Functionality Moving to OneStop, AER Bulletin 2022-20

Link to Bulletin Summarized

Oil and Gas – Land

The AER announced that as of June 16, 2022, the OneStop platform would include new functionality and enhancements.

Public Lands Act Waivers

Effective June 16, 2022, disposition holders must submit Public Lands Act (“PLA”) waivers as “Submissions” in OneStop. The AER will process waivers sent by e-mail until June 15, 2022. Following that date, the AER will no longer accept e-mailed waivers.

Three types of waivers are available for submission in OneStop as defined in Public Lands Administration Regulation Table: A2: Waiver-Activity Timing Conditions; Waiver-Alternative Construction Technique; and Waiver-Other Conditions.

Public Lands Application Process

The AER will enhance the land section in OneStop to reflect policy changes made to the Land Use Reservation Program (“LURP”) by Alberta Environment and Parks.

Changes include updates to regulatory processes:

  • Considering reservations when land applications intersect a Crown Land Reservation (“CLR”); and

  • Converting existing reservations and notations to the new CLR naming convention.

The AER will update Manual 018: OneStop Public Lands Application to reflect policy changes made to LURP and provide guidance on enhancements to the land section in OneStop.

Record of Site Condition Module

The AER changed the Record of Site Condition module in OneStop. Changes include the removal of several assessment criteria. Fewer assessment criteria will result in more baseline low-risk activity, including the automatic acceptance of low-risk Remedial Action Plans. Other enhancements will improve the module’s functionality.

Well Logs

The AER added the option to add raster and Log ASCII Standard files for well logs to submissions with an event sequence greater than nine.

Training and Support Materials

The AER posted a new quick reference guide on the OneStop Help page to support PLA waivers.
