We hold events, such as community meetings and formal hearings, across the province to share information. We also want to hear from indigenous peoples, Albertans, and other stakeholders who inform our decisions about energy regulation.

Area-Based Closure Program
The Alberta Energy Regulator is hosting industry information sessions in Calgary to educate companies on the area-based closure program. The program enables companies to work together in coordinating their closure programs for wells, facilities, pipelines, and sites across Alberta to help reduce cost, while being more efficient and effective.
The sessions will include the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada, and the Petroleum Services Association of Canada. At each session, industry representatives will learn about area-based closure, hear success stories from companies who have already taken advantage of the program, and find out how they can benefit.
All information sessions will be held in Calgary on the 3rd floor of Centennial Place (250 – 5 Street SW). Seating is limited, so please register early.

As announced in Bulletin 2018-15, the reclamation certificate application tool is moving to OneStop, effective July 26, 2018. This transition will allow our industry users to take advantage of the features available in OneStop to streamline the application process. To facilitate this change, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) is offering training sessions at our Calgary head office and Edmonton regional office. This training is for those who are new to OneStop or who may require a refresher. Attendance is limited to two people per company.
For questions about the sessions, please email ISB.email@example.com. For more information about OneStop, visit the OneStop page or contact the AER’s Customer Contact Centre by phone at 403-297-8311 (1-855-297-8311 toll free) or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We engage with communities across Alberta by sharing information about the work that we do, helping people understand how to have their voices heard, and getting feedback on proposed changes to our requirements, to name a few ways.
Like most regulators, our requirements are often seen as complex and technical. To provide clarity to those who need it, we often host technical briefings to share updates and answer questions. These briefings take place in person or online. View past briefings on our YouTube channel.
