Link to Bulletin Summarized

Oil and Gas – Facilities

The AER sought feedback on updates to Directive 001: Requirements for Site-Specific Liability Assessment (the “Directive”). In the updates, the AER:

  • Removed irrelevant or duplicative information, updated the references and formatting (this included moving forms out of the Directive for future posting on the Directive’s landing page);

  • Revised the definition of “Liability Assessment” to emphasize the obligations of licensees to provide care and custody from the shutdown of operations up to site reclamation;

  • Modified the scope of the Directive to include sites regulated under the Geothermal Resource Development Rules;

  • Integrated the requirements under the large facility liability management program into the main body of the Directive, making the requirements applicable to all sites; and

  • Removed the requirement to submit the On-Site Reclamation and Remediation Details and Facility Summary forms.
