The AREPS portal provides access to public policies relating to the development of upstream oil, gas, oil sands and coal. Users are able to identify and access policy documents from this easy to use platform.
AREPS gives access to directives, interim directives, information letters and manuals from the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) and polices from the Government of Alberta (Energy and Environment and Sustainable Resource Development (ESRD)). The lower Athabasca Regional Plan and the Wetlands Policy from ESRD are fully searchable.
The Environmental Site Assessment Repository (ESAR) is a searchable, online database that provides scientific and technical information about assessed and reclaimed sites throughout Alberta.
Environmental site assessments determine the quality of soil and groundwater of a site, such as retail gas stations and other commercial and industrial sites. A site assessment does not necessarily mean a site is, or ever was, contaminated.
ESAR makes available reclamation certificates issued by Environment and Parks (previously Environment and Sustainable Development) prior to March 24, 2014 for upstream oil and gas well sites and other specified lands on private land and the associated file information for the certificates (e.g., applications, reports). Reclamation certificates issues for sites on public land are available through InformationRequest@aer.ca.
All reclamation certificates issued by the Alberta Energy Regulator on or after March 24, 2014 are available through InformationRequest@aer.ca
PETRINEX provides services that facilitate fast, standardized, safe, and accurate management and exchange of key volumetric, royalty, and commercial information associated with the upstream petroleum sector. PETRINEX uses a web-based system for its automated business functions and processes.
Note: PETRINEX is a joint strategic organization supporting Canada’s upstream oil and gas industry and is represented by government (Alberta Department of Energy [DOE], the Alberta Energy Regulator [AER] the Saskatchewan Ministry of the Economy [ECON]), and industry (represented by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers [CAPP] and the Explorer and Producers Association of Canada [EPAC]). It operates under the overall guidance of a unique and proven Crown-Industry governance structure.
