(224.27 KB)

Release Date: July 27, 2023

On April 25, 2023, the Government of Alberta delegated to the AER the oversight of monitoring, measurement, and verification (MMV) plans, closure plans, and closure certificates for carbon capture, utilization, and storage activities in the province.

We have amended references to and submission requirements for MMV and closure plan submissions in sections 2.1.4 and 4.1.7 of Directive 065: Resources Applications for Oil and Gas Reservoirs. The principles and objectives for industry regarding monitoring, measurement, and verification plans for carbon dioxide sequestration projects are included in appendix P. We will receive, review, and decide whether to approve the MMV and closure plans, and issue closure certificates, as part of the Directive 065 application process.
