Pipeline Licensing

The pipeline licensing module has been updated to align with revisions made to Directive 056: Energy Development Applications and Schedules, Directive 077: Pipelines – Requirements and Reference Tools, Manual 012: Energy Development Applications; Procedures and Schedules, and the Government of Alberta’s Pipeline Rules

These updates include changes to the following OneStop activities:

  • Pipeline discontinuance, abandonment, removal, and resumption
  • Alberta Boilers Safety Association (ABSA) registration
  • External protection
  • Product blending (now natural gas stream blending)
  • Level designation changes

Pipeline Forms

Effective November 16, 2023, applicants will be required to complete the appropriate form(s) when providing information on pipeline pressure testing using gaseous test media or liquid test media other than fresh water, and temporary surface pipelines (TSPs) for well testing, bypass, or water conveyance. 

The new forms can be found under the “Forms” tab on the OneStop landing page. For more information, refer to Directive 077: Pipelines – Requirements and Reference Tools.

Public Lands

General fixes and enhancements have been completed in the public lands module. See “What’s New in OneStop” for details.

Water Act

A new borrow pit activity has been added to the water approvals module which includes the following: 

  • A single shapefile for borrow pit applications
  • New screens for borrow pit applications

Enhancements include the ability for reviewers to change expiry dates for water approvals, and new options available for wetland assessment and impact form (WAIF) mitigation.

Other Enhancements and Fixes

We will release enhancements and fixes to the OneStop platform and provide details in “What’s New in OneStop,” which will be posted on the OneStop Help page on November 16.
