This Documentation section houses the new Oil and Gas Activity Application Manual and Oil and Gas Activity Operations Manual. These new manuals, along with additional forms and guidelines, support industry during oil and gas activity application processes, and throughout the duration of subsequent operations. The manuals detail application and regulatory requirements with which operators must comply, while guidelines outline best operational practices.
The Commission is committed to the continuous improvement of its documentation. Stakeholders who would like to provide input or feedback on Commission documentation are encouraged to use the stakeholder feedback questionnaire.
Please note: frequent documentation updates are anticipated for a period after implementation of the new manuals and Application Management System. To access the most recent document versions, it is recommended that users check back here regularly, and make use of the RSS feed available on the Commission website.
