What is the Application Management System?

The Commission’s Application Management System (AMS) is a permit application and information portal that provides a consistent application process for all oil and gas permits.

AMS has shifted the manual, paper based oil and gas permit application process into an online submission process. Historically, the Commission received approximately 4,000 – 5,000 permit applications per year in either hardcopy or quasi-electronic format (via the KERMIT system). Through AMS, the application content is validated at the time of submission, ensuring application requirements are in the form and manner outlined within the Oil and Gas Activities Act. Through AMS, the number of errors therefore are reduced and a more streamlined process is created.

The Commission has set up a webpage dedicated to AMS. Additional information on the application process can be found on the Oil and Gas Activity Application Manual webpage.
