In January 2020, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) updated Directive 60 and the requirements for methane emissions management and reporting at upstream oil and gas operations. The AER’s Alt-FEMP Proposal Checklist provides information related to proposal submissions.
Under the AMEP, the Delivery Agent will issue requests for expression of interest (EOIs) in the development and execution of Alt-FEMPs. The EOIs will provide valuable information regarding the scale and development status of the proposed Alt-FEMPs. This will allow the Delivery Agent to best deliver resources to interested duty holders and collectives of duty holders. The AMEP will then solicit and review Alt-FEMP proposals for AER approval. Once approved, AMEP will allocate grant funding to those programs.
Under AMEP, the Delivery Agent Partnership (DAP) is responsible for:
- Generating robust program-level equivalence assessments that compare alternative testing results to standard methods outlined in current regulatory requirements.
- Improving understanding of fugitive and vented methane emission sources in Alberta.
- Establishing processes and documentation approaches to ensure consistent collection and evaluation of high-
We encourage interested parties to contact the AMEP Delivery Agent should you have any questions regarding the request for EOI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
