(222.55 KB)

Release Date: April 28, 2023

Today we released a new edition of Directive 051: Injection and Disposal Wells – Well Classifications, Completions, Logging, and Testing Requirements. This edition has been rebranded to reflect our change in 2013 from the Energy Resource Conservation Board to the Alberta Energy Regulator and our new mandate under the Responsible Energy Development Act. The Directive also incorporates requirements for geothermal resource development and references to the Geothermal Resource Development Rules.
Other administrative changes made include

  • removing duplicate and obsolete requirements,
  • restructuring the directive to improve its organization,
  • correcting outdated references, and
  • numbering unique requirements.

The revised edition of Directive 051 is available on our website at > Regulating Development > Rules and Directives > Directives. If you have any questions, contact our Customer Contact Centre by phone at 1-855-297-8311 or by email at @email
