Vantage Point Resources Inc. applied for a reclamation certificate for a well site and access road in Legal Subdivision 7, Section 23, Township 27, Range 2, West of the 4th Meridian about 30 kilometres from Oyen and about 140 kilometres from Medicine Hat. The AER issued the reclamation certificate on September 9, 2019.

The AER granted the request for the regulatory appeal on February 6, 2020. The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether the AER should confirm, vary, suspend or revoke its decision to issue the reclamation certificate.

If the request for regulatory appeal is withdrawn, the hearing will be cancelled.
