This map viewer is an interactive map application that identifies all recorded surface locations of abandoned wells by area. Additional details include the abandoned wells’ licensees; and the latitude and longitude of each well’s surface location.
The AER order system is the official site for all regulatory orders and provides a graphical interface for field orders and pool orders. The order system also provides the capability to graphically query (locate) control wells (coalbed methane and shale gas), development entities (DEs), strike areas, and oil sands areas (OSAs).
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.
This helpful tool is available to the public and allows registered users to view AER and ESRD authorizations issued under the Water Act or the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act.
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
Please review the Frequently Asked Questions, Tips and Tricks document or the User Guide if you are having any trouble accessing information on ESAR. If you do not find the information you require, please contact ESAR-Support@gov.ab.ca.
Through this tool, applicants login with their DDS credentials and submit Reclamation Certificate and New Pipeline Applications via their own secured workspace.
