Application Management System

The Commission’s Application Management System (AMS) is the new online system for the submission of oil and gas applications in British Columbia. AMS provides a consistent process for oil and gas activity permit applications, related activity authorization applications, applications for provincial approvals for NEB pipelines, and historical data submissions.


The process of how to submit an oil and gas application is outlined in the Oil and Gas Activity Application Manual, found in the documentation webpages.

For information on how to log on to AMS and its security roles, see INDB 2016-18. Additional instructions can be found in the updated Permit Operations and Administration Manual.
