Description of the Proceeding

Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) applied to the AER for a reclamation certificate for a well site and access road in Legal Subdivision 11, Section 9, Township 83, Range 13, West of the 6th Meridian. The AER refused to the issue the reclamation certificate, citing the deficiency of the application in terms of incompatible vegetation and the unacceptability of the exemption justification form.

On November 17, 2014, the AER received a request for a regulatory appeal under Part 1, Division 3, of the Responsible Energy Development Act and Part 3 of the Alberta Energy Regulator Rules of Practice (Rules of Practice) of the AER’s decision to refuse to issue the reclamation certificate.

The AER’s decision to set the matter down for a hearing was issued on September 9, 2015. The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether the AER should confirm, vary, suspend, or revoke its decision to refuse to issue a reclamation certificate.
