For immediate release

The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) has laid charges against Tamarack Valley Energy and its subsidiary for

  • using water without AER approval,
  • failing to monitor its water use, and
  • failing to properly report its water use to the AER.

The Water Act charges are the result of an investigation into the company’s drilling and hydraulic fracturing operations near Veteran between January 2017 and April 2018.

To ensure Tamarack’s right to a fair prosecution, the AER cannot release further details. Tamarack’s first court appearance is scheduled for June 12, 2020, in Coronation.
