See below for AER requirements for an RDT which includes, but is not limited to, the following:
RDT applicant company must be eligible to hold a licence. See the AER Directive 067, Applying for Approval to Hold EUB Licences, for further information.
RDT applicants must obtain mineral and surface rights to the well.
RDT applicants must be compliant with all AER regulations and meet RDT application requirements.
The AER may apply a $10,000 RDT fee for each well and facility license transferred at its discretion.
RDT applications must include requests for the associated pipeline licenses required to operate.
Please note that all RDT applications are to be made to the AER, not the OWA which is a separate organization.
The OWA requests applicants to notify us via email (RDT@orphanwell.ca) after submitting an RDT application to the AER, so that the OWA does not abandon the applicant’s well or pipelines of interest during the AER application process.
Individual wells: please contact the AER Customer Contact Centre for records held by the AER 1-855-297-8311, 403-297-8311 or email@example.com. (Note there is a fee associated with this AER service.)
