Effective Dec. 6, 2021, permit holders of gas processing plants in B.C. must use eSubmission online portal when submitting annual analyses of fluids entering the Plant.

DATE ISSUED: Dec. 1, 2021

EFFECTIVE DATE: Dec. 6, 2021

The BC Oil and Gas Commission (Commission) is simplifying the process for submitting Gas Processing Plant (“Plant”) Fluid Analyses. Effective Dec. 6, 2021, permit holders of gas processing plants in B.C. must use the eSubmission online portal when submitting annual analyses of fluids entering the Plant. This includes both the gas analysis and associated hydrocarbon liquid analysis, and each marketable product leaving the Plant. This is due by January 31 each year.

The submission of Plant inlet and marketable product sales stream analyses has been a specific requirement within the Drilling and Production Regulation, section 34(7), until the recent release of the new Oil and Gas Processing Facility Regulation (OGPFR). Currently, Part 6, Division 1 of the OGPFR specifies records requirements for Plants and other processing facilities under this regulation.

This change simplifies the submission process, eliminating the need to submit analyses information by email, or in any other format. Permit holders will be able to administer access within their own organization. Users submitting analyses in eSubmission will require the “Methane Reporting” security role. Users who do not have this role will need to contact their company administrator to have this role assigned in KERMIT. Refer to the Online System Accounts page for more information about creating accounts and obtaining security roles, and the Company Administration.

An updated eSubmission User Guide will be available on the Commission’s website as of Dec. 6, 2021.
