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.
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
Through this tool, applicants login with their DDS credentials and submit Reclamation Certificate Applications via their own secured workspace. Other features includes access to transactional map layers and related reports, attaching Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) submissions to Reclamation Certificate Applications, and greater visibility around decisions and the status of applications under review.
Using the maps, zoom in on a specific part of the province and turn on (or off) different layers to see what’s happening. In addition to showing specific regions – (like cities, protected areas, indigenous lands, and military bases), the maps in the tool also show all of the industry assets, including facilities, wells, compressor stations, pipelines and access roads across Alberta.
Applications upon which a decision has been reached will be displayed. To review applications submitted in the last 30 days, use the Public Notice of Application tool. For other decisions, visit the Decisions webpage.
