Amendments to the Coal Conservation Act and Regulations, Oil and Gas Conservation Act and Regulations, Oil Sands Conservation Act, and Pipeline Act

Jul 28, 2011

The Energy Statutes Amendment Act, 2011, was passed by the Legislative Assembly of Alberta on May 13, 2011. The Coal Conservation Act, Oil and Gas Conservation Act, Oil Sands Conservation Act, and Pipeline Act have been amended. The amendments remove industrial development permit legislation, as per Bulletin 2010-42: Invitation for Feedback on Draft Legislative Amendments for Removing Industrial Development Permits for Energy Resource Use, and clarify ERCB authority to regulate in situ coal schemes, as per Bulletin 2009-36: Invitation for Feedback on Proposed Legislative Framework for In Situ Coal Schemes.

Amendments to the Coal Conservation Regulations and Oil and Gas Conservation Regulations will be implemented shortly.
