Purpose of this Directive

This draft directive sets out requirements to ensure continued reductions in benzene emissions to reduce potential exposure of the public and the environment. Air dispersion modelling results show that to consistently meet the Alberta Ambient Air Quality Objectives for the benzene one-hour average and annual average, the upstream oil and gas industry must not exceed the reduced emission targets set out in this directive.

The Benzene Technical Advisory Team, a multistakeholder committee consisting of participants representing industry; the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers; and regulators from Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan, provided input into this directive.
