Validating Facility Operational Life-Cycle Statuses

(249.69 KB)

Release Date: September 26, 2023

The AER will be contacting applicable licensees by email for information to validate the operational life-cycle status of their facilities. Additional information is necessary due to discrepancies between AER facility licensing information and the Government of Alberta’s Petrinex reporting system. Beginning January 2024, we will include facilities where the operational life-cycle status cannot be verified into the licensee’s assessed inactive liability.

This is a one-time supplemental data request. Licensees are expected to maintain accurate records for their facilities and all other energy-related assets. This may involve a licensee reviewing their licensed facility data in OneStop, requesting the AER cancel the licence of a facility that was not constructed, requesting the AER update the link between a Petrinex reporting facility ID and an AER facility licence, or adding or changing a link from a compressor or satellite licence to another facility licence in the Digital Data Submission (DDS) system:

  • Reviewing licensee facility data in OneStop: The OneStop Liability Assessment Report indicates if your company has facilities where the operational life-cycle status cannot be verified. If the OneStop report identifies your company as having facilities with an “Authorization Lifecycle Status” of “unknown,” but you did not receive the additional information request email from the AER, please contact us at @email
  • Cancelling a facility licence: See questions 7 and 8 of the Directive 056: Energy Development Applications and Schedules – Facility Applications FAQs.
  • Changing the link between a Petrinex reporting facility ID and an AER licence: See the “Changing a Facility Licence Link” tip in the Petrinex User Resource Centre.
  • Updating the licence-to-licence link for compressors and satellites in DDS: See section 1 in appendix 2 of Directive 006: Licensee Liability Rating (LLR) Program and the Notifications > Licence section of DDS
