ERCB to conduct business testing and recovery operations

For immediate release

Calgary, Alberta (Apr 18, 2013)… The Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB) is now conducting testing and recovery of its application systems impacted by the production outage that occurred April 4, 2013.

As systems are brought back into operation, operators may receive automatically generated emails from the ERCB. Operators are advised that the links in these emails may not function until full operations are resumed. The ERCB will make a formal announcement when all systems are fully operational.

Incident reporting, monitoring, and emergency response capabilities are not impacted by this outage. The ERCB continues to carry out field surveillance activities including inspections, monitoring, and responding to landowner concerns.

As a result of the outage, the ERCB cannot receive electronic applications filed by industry, and ERCB-generated reports are unavailable. The outage has also affected the ERCB’s ability to fulfill information product orders from Information Dissemination Services and disrupted all activities at the Core Research Centre.

The ERCB has issued Bulletin 2013-11 and Bulletin 2013-12, which contain further information about the outage. More information is available at
