The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) has suspended the licences for all of SanLing Energy Ltd.’s wells, facilities, and pipelines through a reasonable care and measures order.
“If SanLing, or any company, wants to do business in Alberta, they must follow our rules,” says Blair Reilly, director of Enforcement and Emergency Management. “We cannot allow a company that has ignored the rules continue to operate—that's not in Alberta's interest."
SanLing holds AER licences for 2266 wells, 227 facilities, and 2170 pipelines and currently owes $67 million in security to the AER for its end-of-life obligations. Repeated attempts by the AER to bring SanLing into compliance have failed. As a result, the AER has little confidence in SanLing’s ability to conduct its operations safely and is taking this measure to protect the public and environment and to minimize financial risk.
