This directive supersedes Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) Interim Directive (ID) 2002-03: Performance Presentations for In Situ Oil Sands Schemes. For all in situ oil sands schemes in the Athabasca, Cold Lake, and Peace River Oil Sands Areas, the directive specifies performance presentation content, frequency, and formatting requirements, and special information requests resulting from AER audits and ongoing surveillance. Since the issuance of ID 2002-03 there has been a steady increase in the number of operating in situ schemes and expansions to existing schemes. As a result, the volume of data and information related to facility and wellbore operations and reservoir performance continues to expand. This directive will ensure that there is consistent and relevant reporting on the progress of in situ schemes and that operators are aware of their obligations respecting performance presentations and requests for data and information resulting from AER audits and ongoing surveillance of schemes.
