The present Rules are made under the Responsible Energy Development Act. In particular, the Rules establish that private surface agreements between landowners and energy companies operating on their property can now be registered with the Alberta Energy Regulator’s new Private Surface Agreements Registry (PSAR). Created as part of the Alberta Energy Regulator’s mandate to oversee energy development in the province. The Rules allow landowners to request the Regulator’s intervention, if they feel a company is not meeting a term or condition of a registered agreement. Following investigation, if the Regulator determines that the company is not in compliance with the registered agreement, it can issue an order to comply. The text consists of 15 sections divided into 3 Parts.
