Oil and Gas – Rules

With this bulletin, the AER announced the release of a new edition of AER Manual 005: Pipeline Inspections.

In the new edition of Manual 005, the AER:

(a)     added non-compliance statements to reflect updates to Directive 055: Storage Requirements for the Upstream Petroleum Industry and Directive 058: Oilfield Waste Management Requirements for the Upstream Petroleum Industry; and

(b)     removed low- and high-risk ratings to align with the Integrated Compliance Assurance Framework and Manual 013: Compliance and Enforcement Program.

The AER noted that Manual 005 is not an exhaustive inventory of all the pipeline non-compliance statements. It is further not a comprehensive restatement of the regulatory requirements and does not absolve companies of their responsibility for understanding and complying with all relevant requirements.
