Hydraulic Fracturing Communication Event Procedure

Subject well licensees must immediately notify the appropriate AER field centre of a communication event (including pressure pulses) with an offset well, a non-saline aquifer, or a water well.

Each well and facility licensee involved (the subject well and any impacted wells and/or facilities) must complete the hydraulic fracturing inter-wellbore communication event spreadsheet. The spreadsheet must be emailed to the Hydraulic Fracturing Administrator at HF_Notification@aer.ca. Questions about the spreadsheet are to be directed to the Hydraulic Fracturing Administrator.
