AEP System Outage Update

Due to a fire, some systems that we share with the Government of Alberta (e.g., GLIMPS) remain offline. 

We will therefore be manually processing applications for temporary field authorizations (TFAs), seismic exploration permits, and formal land disposition and issuing temporary approvals by email until the systems are restored. This process will have no impact on confidentiality. 

Please see Bulletin 2018-19 Manual Process for Issuing Approvals for Temporary Field Authorizations, Seismic Exploration Permits, and Formal Land Dispositions for more information.

AEP System Outage Update

AER and Alberta Environment and Parks (AEP) shared systems are experiencing an outage due to a fire at the Alberta Forestry Building in Edmonton.

Some shared systems that require Government of Alberta credentials remain offline (e.g., GLIMPS) or may be degraded (e.g., PDF documents are not available for download for recent submissions in the Authorizations Viewer). At this time, the AER is unable to process or make decisions on submitted public lands applications. Industry is also unable to submit new public lands applications or find out about the status of current public lands dispositions and submitted applications.

The AER and AEP are working together to develop an interim process for accepting and deciding on public land applications. More information will be made available in the coming days.

For more information on the outage, please visit the AEP website.
