Filing Requirements – Consolidation

The AER released new editions of Directive 059: Well Drilling and Completion Data Filing Requirements (“Directive 059”) and its companion Manual 027: Well Drilling and Completion Data Submission System (“Manual 027”).

Directive 059 was restructured, and procedural guidance was moved to Manual 027. These changes are administrative, and no new requirements have been created. Redundant and outdated content has been removed. Information on daily records of operations and personal information, which was contained in Bulletin 2010-43, has been incorporated into Directive 059. Manual 027 updated the fracture fluid water source types to align with the Water Conservation Policy for Upstream Oil and Gas Operations.

In addition, the following documents were consolidated into Directive 059 and Manual 027 and have been discontinued:

  • Well Drilling Completion User Guide;

  • Modify Packer Operation (DDS Completion Submission Enhancement from April 1, 2012); and

  • Directive 059 FAQs.
