Regulatory Document Review

Apr 30, 2014

The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) continues to improve its rules, requirements, and processes to ensure the safe, efficient, orderly, and environmentally responsible development of hydrocarbon resources.

A review of two informational letters has resulted in the following changes.

IL 82-11: Preservation of Archaeological, Palaeontological, and Historical Resources: Policy Update has been reviewed and is considered no longer necessary as the process is covered under Directive 056: Energy Development Applications and Schedules. Additional information can also be found on Alberta Culture’s website (

IL 2002-01: Principles for Minimizing Surface Disturbance in Native Prairie and Parkland Areas has been reviewed and reformatted as Manual 007: Principles for Minimizing Surface Disturbance in Native Prairie and Parkland Areas. Revisions include minor clarification of certain principles and updating of the map and references.

IL 82-11 and IL 2002-01 are rescinded as a result of this review.
