What is EAS?
The Electronic Application Submission (EAS) system uses the Web to support the data
flow for the submission and disposition of applications to and from the Energy Resources
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 help is intended as a tool to assist in filing applications using the EAS. It does not
supersede requirements found in the associated ERCB Directives and Rules.

Acid Gas Disposal: Amendment
Acid gas disposal has become a cost-effective means to dispose of uneconomic
quantities of hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) into underground
formations. The formation types that the ERCB typically considers suitable for disposal
are depleted hydrocarbon-bearing zones or unusable-water-bearing zones. The disposal
of these waste by-products can reduce public concern resulting from sour gas production
and flaring. Section 26(1)(d) of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act requires that no
scheme for the disposal of any fluid to an underground formation shall proceed unless
approved by the ERCB. Acid gas disposal amendment applications are required to
change, remove, or add a condition to the scheme approval.

Change in Approval Holder Spacing
A Change in Approval Holder application must be filed in the following situations:
Mineral ownership within an approved holding boundary has changed and the existing approval
holder is no longer applicable. An example of such a situation is when a company has been
acquired by another company and is no longer the existing approval holder. In these situations,
a Change in Approval Holder application must be filed to reflect the new company name as the
approval holder.
Mineral ownership within an approved holding boundary has changed, resulting in the need to
redefine the holding boundaries. An example of such a situation may occur if working mineral
interests within the holding change and are no longer equal. In this situation a Change in
Approval Holder application must be filed to realign the holding boundaries to reflect the new
area of common ownership. Failure to realign holding boundaries to reflect common ownership
results in a High Risk enforcement action.

Class I Disposal: New
Disposal refers to the injection of fluids for purposes other than enhanced recovery or
gas storage. Section 26 (1) of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act requires ERCB approval
of a scheme for the storage or disposal of any fluid or other substance to an
underground formation through a well. Generally you must obtain a surface facility
approval from the ERCB Facilities Waste Management Section and/or Alberta
Environment before the ERCB may issue a waste disposal well approval. For more
information on waste facility applications, see Directive 058. You may obtain information
on industrial waste facilities applications from the appropriate Alberta Environmental
Corporate Regional office.

Compulsory Pooling
The ERCB’s role in pooling matters is to offer a regulatory avenue to resolve problems
relating to pooling issues, thereby allowing each owner the opportunity to obtain its
share of oil and gas from any pool.
Applications for compulsory pooling are made
under Section 72 of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act (the Act);
if there is a missing and untraceable owner in the spacing unit, under both Sections 72 and 77
of the Act (Section 77 provides that the revenues associated with the missing and untraceable
owner be paid to the Public Trustee); and
if there is a dispute as to the ownership of a tract or ownership is unknown, under both
Sections 72 and 78 of the Act (Section 78 provides that revenues associated with the disputed
tract be paid to the Provincial Treasurer to be held in trust pending an order of the Court of
Queen’s Bench or until a settlement has been reached by the parties).
The ERCB’s current policies and practices respecting pooling arise from a combination of
specific provisions of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act, historical decisions made by the
ERCB, consultations with industry, and ERCB decisions resulting from pooling
applications considered at public hearings. These avenues have resulted in an ERCB
pooling order with standard terms. Nonstandard terms are included in an order only
where there is substantial justification to do so.

Section 7.025 of the OGCR states that a licensee shall not produce gas from coal unless
the Board has designated a control well that is within 5 kilometres of the producing gas
well for desorption testing.
A list of designated control wells appears on the ERCB web site. If a control well isn't

ER Scheme
Enhanced recovery (ER) involves the improvement of hydrocarbon recovery through the
injection of fluid(s) into a hydrocarbon reservoir to
add to or maintain reservoir energy (pressure),
displace hydrocarbons to production wells, and/or
alter the reservoir fluids so that hydrocarbon flow and recovery are improved.
Waterflooding of oil pools is the most common type of ER scheme in Alberta, but other
gas/solvent floods, miscible floods and gas cycling schemes also exist.
An application to implement or amend a scheme for enhanced recovery is required in
accordance with Section 39(1)(a) of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act. Approvals or
licenses from other government agencies may also be required outside the Directive 065
approval process.
The ERCB expects approved ER schemes to be operated in accordance with the scheme
approval at all times. The ERCB also expects that the operation of ER schemes will be
monitored and that operational adjustments or changes will be made to ensure optimum
recovery.
If changes to the original approval are required, you must apply for appropriate
amendment(s) to the existing ER scheme approval.

Gas Storage
This application is for the storage of gas into underground hydrocarbon reservoirs can be
for production-motivated reasons or commercial operations. Production-motivated
schemes are usually characterized by the temporary storage of gas occurring at or near
the producing pools. They can allow for the more efficient use of production and
processing facilities and may also be of benefit in market-related situations. Commercial
gas storage schemes are designed to provide an efficient means of balancing supply with
a fluctuating market demand. These schemes store third-party nonnative gas, allowing
marketers to take advantage of seasonal price differences, effect custody transfers, and
maintain reliability of supply. Gas from many sources may be stored at commercial
facilities under fee-for-service, buy-sell, or other contractual arrangements.
The ERCB regulates gas storage operations to ensure that all gas conservation, equity,
environment, and safety issues are addressed and to maintain up-to-date estimates of
provincial gas reserves and deliverability.

Rateable Take
The purposes of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act (the Act) are, among other things, to
effect the conservation of oil and gas resources, to afford each owner the opportunity of
obtaining its share of the production of oil or gas from any pool, and to provide for
economic, orderly, and efficient development in the public interest. Section 23 of the Act
mandates the ERCB to address all three of these purposes. Historically this legislation
has been used only in the equity context and to allow for economic, orderly, and
efficient development; other sections of the Act have been used to ensure conservation
of resources.
Under Section 23 the ERCB may limit the amount of gas that may be produced and/or
distribute the amount of gas that may be produced from a pool or part of a pool.
Historically, this legislation has been used to authorize the distribution of gas production
among wells in a non-associated gas pool.

Rescind Spacing
Under Section 5.220(b) of the OGCR, an applicant may apply to rescind all or part of an
existing approved holding. A request to rescind a holding must be made using the
Rescind form. Rescinding all or a portion of a holding may be necessary if common
ownership no longer exists. A common example of such a situation is when a lease for a
DSU within a holding boundary has expired and reverted back to the Crown. A holding
may also be rescinded if the standard spacing prescribed in Part 4 of the OGCR is
sufficient. There are no notification requirements for an application to rescind a holding.
To rescind spacing

Special Maximum Rate Limitation
A Special MRL is an MRL approved by the ERCB that is greater than the reserves-based
MRL. Special MRLs can be applied to entire pools or individual wells. Relatively few
Special MRL applications are received or approved each year because, like GOR penalty
relief, Special MRL applications have the same issues involved as GPP. For this reason,
when processing a Special MRL application, the ERCB will often grant GPP. A Special MRL
is applied for under Section 10.060 of the Oil and Gas Conservation Regulations.
To enter special maximum rate limitation

Well Logs
The open hole geophysical logs (gamma ray, caliper, neutron, density, and resistivity)
are preferred for determining lithology in control wells. Coals can be recognized by
characteristically high neutron/density porosity, low gamma ray, and high resistivity
responses.
Coals are subject to caving during drilling, which can be identified from the caliper log. If
the caving prevents a clear identification of the lithology from logs, the licensee will need
to provide additional information (e.g. additional logs, correlations from offset wells,
core, and sample descriptions) to support their case that the completed zone occurs
within a coal lithology.
Reports
Attach a copy of the preliminary desorption report if the application is for preliminary
validation of a desorption control well.
Attach a copy of the calibration report if the application is for a full validation of a
desorption control well and the desorption test is on a non-full diameter core.

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 licence 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.
