We regularly monitor and inspect sites, from one corner of the province to another. AER field inspectors visit thousands of Alberta’s operating wells, production and processing facilities, and pipelines each year.  

Our inspectors check that operators are following sound operating practices and are meeting requirements and conditions of approval. If unsatisfactory items are found during an inspection, the AER may give the operator time to correct the items; however, if there is danger to people or the environment, the AER can immediately shut down a facility or order the activity to stop until the problem is addressed.
