Alberta Energy Regulator Calgary Head Office Remains Closed, All Operations Continue

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 26, 2013) - As downtown Calgary continues to recover from the impact of last week's floods, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) Calgary head office will not be open on Thursday, June 27 2013.

All remaining AER offices are open and the AER is currently implementing plans to reopen the Calgary office as soon as possible.

Incident reporting, response, and monitoring capabilities are unaffected by this outage. The AER continues to carry out field surveillance activities including inspections, compliance monitoring, and responding to landowner concerns. All production systems remain in operation.

The AER recognizes that the southern Alberta floods may impact industry's ability to submit routine data. As a result, the AER will extend deadlines for routine data submission until July 3, 2013. All requirements for mandatory reporting of oil and gas-related incidents as well as requirements for information normally submitted to AER field centres are still in place.

All remaining AER locations are open. Energy and environment-related incidents and emergencies should be reported to the 24-hour response line at 1-800-222-6514. Compliance officers who answer the 24-hour line are trained to assess the situation and will ensure that the appropriate agencies are contacted and emergency responders dispatched if necessary.
