Directive 026 Rescinded

(230.06 KB)

Release Date: February 08, 2024

In our ongoing effort to eliminate duplicative or obsolete requirements, effective today, we have rescinded Directive 026: Setback Requirements for Oil Effluent Pipelines and two related documents: 

  • Interim Directive 81-03 Minimum Distance Requirements Separating New Sour Gas Facilities from Residential and Other Developments
  • Directive 056 Process Clarification for Oil Effluent Pipelines Containing Greater than 10 Moles of H2S Gas per kilomole of Natural Gas

All requirements regarding hydrogen sulphide (H2S) release volume calculations and facility categories, levels, and setbacks are already in Directive 056: Energy Development Applications and Schedules and Directive 071: Emergency Preparedness and Response (including the ERCBH2S model). Therefore, these rescissions will not impact the existing requirements to ensure public safety, environmental protection, or resource conservation.
