New Functionality Moving to OneStop

(247.92 KB)

Release Date: March 02, 2023

On March 16, 2023, we will release new functionality and enhancements to the OneStop platform.

Form Submissions
A “Forms” tab will be added to OneStop and will be accessible on the landing page as an entry point for general submissions. At that time two forms will be available:

  • Financial Statement Submission (Directive 067, Schedule 3)
  • Closure Nomination Licensee Response (Directive 088)

Well Licensing: Brine-Hosted Minerals
The well licensing module will be enhanced to accept brine-hosted mineral well licence applications (new and amendment). Improvements include brine-hosted mineral well types and Regulatory Conversion, a well licence amendment type. 

Regulatory Conversion converts existing Oil and Gas Conservation Act (OGCA) and Geothermal Resource Development Act (GRDA) wells to brine-hosted mineral resource wells as identified in the Mineral Resource Development Act (MRDA). 

See Mineral Resource Development on our website for more information about brine-hosted mineral resource development and the AER’s role in regulating minerals.

Wells Licensing: Carbon Capture Storage
A new Carbon Capture Storage well type will be added to the wells licensing module in OneStop, which includes the option to classify a carbon sequestration evaluation well as “Confidential."

Other Enhancements and Fixes
Details on other OneStop enhancements and fixes will be made available at the time of release in “What’s New in OneStop,” found on the OneStop Help page under “Enhancements, Fixes & Bulletins.” We will schedule a system outage to implement these latest changes and post the notice on the Systems and Tools page on our website and the OneStop Help page. 

Training and Support Materials 
We will hold a Well Licensing Brine-Hosted Minerals training session after the release to review the changes and demonstrate the new functionality in OneStop. Registration information can be found on the AER Announcements page. 

We will post new quick reference guides (QRG) on the OneStop Help page to support brine-hosted minerals and carbon capture storage functionality. If you have questions about OneStop or this bulletin, contact the AER’s Customer Contact Centre by phone at 403-297-8311 (1-855-297-8311 toll free) or by email at @email.
