What Is EAS?
This user guide is a tool
to assist in filing facilities
applications using EAS. It
does not supersede
requirements found
inDirective 056: Energy
Development
Applications and
Schedules.
The Electronic Application System (EAS) uses the Web to support the data flow
for the submission and disposition of applications to and from the Energy
Resources and Conservation Board (ERCB).
Use EAS to:
•
•
•
•
•
enter application data on the Web
validate application information and attach required application support
documents
submit completed applications to the ERCB for registration in the Integrated
Application Registry (IAR)
receive e-mail notification of successful application registration
submit additional or replacement attachments
Use IAR Query to:
• locate and view applications and their current status
• view and print all application documents for 30 days after application
disposition
This guide explains
•
•
•
•
how to submit facilities applications and required attachments
how to save and edit applications
how to query submitted applications
where to find related ERCB directives, regulations, and associated
publications

EAS toolbars
The main menu toolbar is shown at the top of every schedule. Use the buttons to
process the information you enter and register the application. Buttons vary
depending on the schedule requirements. Those not currently applicable are shown

Schedule 4.2 - Multiple Well Applications
In EAS, multiple well information is collected in 7. Well detail of Schedule 4
(see p. 29).
The following conditions apply to all wells in a multiple well application:
• the surface location of all wells is the same legal subdivision or adjoining
legal subdivision,
• all wells are the same well type (e.g., injection, production), and
• all wells are to be licensed under the same section of the Oil and Gas
Conservation Regulations.
Oil sands evaluation wells that are licensed under Section 2.030 of the OGCR
may be applied for as a multiple well application if
•
they are part of the same project, and
•
the producing and terminating formations of all wells applied for are the
same.

Schedule 4.3 – Well H2S Information
Click
on the main toolbar to open Schedule 4.3. A separate
Schedule 4.3 is required for C, D, and E well applications.
For well pad licence applications, choose the maximum cumulative H2S release
rate assessment values for the entire pad. You can file separate well or well pad
licence applications if you do not want to accept the maximum cumulative H2S
release assessment rate value for the entire pad.
1. H2S release rate well prognosis by potential H2S horizon
This is where you address the H2S potential of all prospective formations
encountered by the well. If your analysis has determined that there is no
potential to meet H2S in a formation, you must demonstrate that the formation
has been considered in your evaluation by recording zero for the release rate
information.
For the purpose of the H2S evaluation, you must consider the formation
encountered at the total depth when completing the drilling case (i.e., evaluate
the 15 m overhole formation).
Click

From the drop-down list, select the formation(s) considered in
your H2S evaluation.

(Required)
Enter the completion/servicing H2S release rate in m3/s (to 4

that was considered in your H2S evaluation. Enter zero (0) if
there is no potential to encounter H2S in the formation.

Amendment
Type
Check all that
apply
A facility must have an existing ERCB facility licence number before a
licence amendment application can be filed.
When filing a licence amendment application, you must retain the original
facility type (i.e., gas battery, oil battery) unless
• additional equipment proposed for installation will cause the gas facility
to become a gas processing plant (e.g., the addition of a refrigeration
skid to an existing compressor station creates a gas processing plant) or
• equipment proposed for removal will cause the facility type to change
(e.g., the removal of storage tanks at an oil battery creates an oil
satellite).
Although licence applications for “new” Category C and D processing
plants are designated nonroutine by the ERCB, licence amendment
applications for these category types may be filed as routine, unless they
are nonroutine for participant involvement or technical reasons.
Licence amendment
applications should be
submitted based upon the
criteria listed in Directive 056.
(see also Appendix 5:
Facility Licence
Amendments, p. 129).

Appendix 2: Enter a DLS location
The legal survey location component for Alberta is the Dominion Land Survey
(DLS) system that is used in Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and a portion of
British Columbia.
Enter the DLS location according to the following rules.
Meridian
•
•
•
The province of Alberta is subdivided into three areas defined by the
meridians of longitude referred to as west (W) of the 4th, 5th, and 6th
meridians.
Valid values are W4, W5, W6.
Meridian is required if Township is entered.
EAS Facilities Applications User Guide 12BAppendix 2: Enter a DLS location (January 2008) • 123
Range
•
•
•
Each meridian area (i.e., W4, W5, and W6) subdivides into ranges. A
range measures 9.7 km (6 miles) east to west.
Valid values are 1-30 for W4 and W5; 1-14 for W6.
Range is required if Township is entered.
124 • EAS Facilities Applications User Guide 12BAppendix 2: Enter a DLS location (July 2006)
Township
•
•
•
Each area west of a meridian subdivides north-south into townships.
Townships are numbered 001-126. A township measures 9.7 km (6 miles)
north to south.
Valid values are 001-126.
Township is required if Meridian is entered.
Section
•
•
•
After township, range, and meridian have been located for a drillhole, the
next portion of the DLS is the section. Sections are numbered 1-36. A
section measures 1.609 km by 1.609 km (1 mile by 1 mile).
Valid values are 01-36.
Section is required if Township is entered.
EAS Facilities Applications User Guide 12BAppendix 2: Enter a DLS location (January 2008) • 125
LSD
•
•
•
A section is divided into legal subdivisions. LSDs are numbered 1-16. An
LSD measures 402 m by 402 m. (1320 feet by 1320 feet).
Valid values are 01-16.
LSD is required if Township is entered.

EAS Facilities Applications User Guide 12BAppendix 2: Enter a DLS location (January 2008) • 127
LE
The location exception code is used to identify cases where there is more than
one drillhole on the smallest land area described by the DLS system. That is, the
location exception code describes more than one drill hole in a legal subdivision.
In addition, the location exception is generally used to describe the sequence that
drillholes were drilled in the legal subdivision.
This example illustrates the second hole drilled in LSD 11-36-006-05W4.
ES
The Event Sequence code is a one-character code showing the chronological
sequence of a significant drilling and/or completion operation of a drillhole that
yields a separate and unique set of geological or production data.
0-9
1 is not used
This example illustrates a second event in the second drillhole in LSD 02/11-36006-05W4/2.

Appendix 3: Alberta Township Survey (ATS) Grid
The Alberta Township System (ATS) program maintains a record of the
geographical positions of monuments and governing points in the Alberta
Township Survey System. The ATS coordinate file is a digital data file
containing geographical coordinates for every governing quarter section in the
province of Alberta.
Application location information must be referenced to the NAD83 datum and
the ATS March 2005 Grid.
Data sets affected are:
• General Well Data File
• Drilling Well Data File
• Coal Hole Data File
Implications
•
•
•
•
The latitude and longitude submitted with an application are kept with
the application on the Application table. EAS calculates the latitude and
longitude using the NAD83 datum and the ATS March 2005 Grid and
stores the information on the Well License table. This calculated
latitude/longitude is then replicated to all other related tables and shown
in IAR.
Amendments use latitude and longitudes from the Application table.
All locations previously calculated from metes and bounds descriptions
have been recalculated.
A 2 section buffer has been built at the Alberta BC Border to specifically
address some issues with coal data with B.C. locations.
