Release Date: August 08, 2019


On June 24, 2019, Alberta Energy released Mineral Rights Information Bulletin 2019-01 (, which discusses when a disposal operator requires a Crown mineral activity authorization (CMA). We wish to clarify that a CMA holder is still required to obtain approval from the AER for a disposal scheme under section 39 of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act. Issuance of a CMA in no way influences our decisions regarding disposal approvals.
