The Government of Alberta has announced that it is holding public consultations as part of its process to develop the new regulations under the Responsible Energy Development Act. These regulations will set out the details regarding how the new Alberta Energy Regulator will function in practice. The Calgary session will take place on February 25, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Anyone wishing to participate but unable to attend a consultation session can complete an online survey.
This announcement also confirms that the Alberta Energy Regulator is expected to begin operations in June of 2013.
