Purpose of this Directive

This directive discusses the review of the declaratory provisions of Part 10 and section 23 of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act carried out by the predecessor of the AER (ERCB), with a view to speeding up the application process and solving related administrative problems. At the time, the petroleum industry’s view on problems and potential solutions was solicited.

The directive discusses matters where problems have been experienced or perceived by the industry, such as those relating to apportioning under a common-purchaser order, discrimination, retroactivity and method of adjustment, cross-dedication, areally extensive pools, and gas production spacing unit administration.
