Definitions for Users
Energy development category type
Energy development category type (EDCT) identifies the energy development type for which a facility is currently licensed, and the minimum consultation and notification requirements.
A facility subtype is a more detailed classification of a facility type. An operator must assign a subtype when applying for a facility ID in Petrinex. Petrinex validates the facility subtype selection with the facility licence data. For example, facility subtype 405—gas-plant sulphur recovery—is a subtype of the gas-plant facility type. See the EDCT Code and Facility Subtype [PDF] document for more examples.
Please note: The Petrinex facility subtype typically does not change once assigned and might not reflect the subtype of the currently operating facility. EDCT codes, assigned at the licence level, do reflect the current licence type. If two or more facilities are on the same licence, the EDCT code of the highest-priority facility will be assigned to all facilities on that licence.
Licensee agent codes – ST104 (alphabetical by licensee)(updated monthly)
Business associate codes – ST104A (alphabetical by company name) (updated monthly)
ST104A provides business associate (BA) codes for companies, including licensees and agents. It also lists companies that have codes but are not registered licensees or agents (e.g., drilling companies).
