Upstream Oil and Gas Authorizations and Consultation Guide

The Government of Alberta has developed the Upstream Oil and Gas Authorizations and Consultation Guide (the Guide) to provide industry with a central reference tool for upstream oil and gas development activities. It references conventional and unconventional oil and gas developments and activities, in-situ oil sands but not mineable oil sands projects. The Guide clarifies processes by identifying common authorizations such as approvals, licenses, dispositions, permits and registrations that are required from Alberta Energy, AEP, and the AER.

The Guide is available on the AER website.
