(216.1 KB)

Release Date: April 08, 2021


On May 13, 2020, the Government of Alberta issued Information Letter 2020-22, applying a royalty to helium. As a result, Petrinex has been updated to collect helium production volumes effective April 7, 2021.

Today we released new editions of Directive 007: Volumetric and Infrastructure Requirements and Manual 011: How to Submit Volumetric Data to the AER.

  • In Directive 007, helium is specified as a substance for reporting purposes.
  • In Manual 011, codes regarding helium have been added to the appendices and minor changes were made to better align it with current Petrinex functionality
  • In both documents we made minor revisions to reduce duplication as part of our contributions towards the Government of Alberta’s Red Tape Reduction Act.

The new editions of Directive 007 and Manual 011 are available on our website, If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Contact Centre by phone at 403-297-8311 (1-855-297-8311) or by email at @email.
