Resource is brought to you by the Alberta Energy Regulator.
Alberta - December 11, 2019

Like canola fields, cattle, and even our bodies, Alberta’s oil and gas sector needs water to survive. But there’s much more to water than what comes from our kitchen taps.

The graphic below helps filter information on where water comes from and how it’s used and conserved during oil and gas development.

Wow... If thats the best you can do, its time for you to find other employment. It never ceases to amaze me that the regulator fails to truly understand what is really happening in the provincial oil and gas sector when it comes to water resources. We are losing valuable ground water every day and it seems nobody wants to hear about it especially at the AER. The province needs to take a hard look at the true impact on water resources and actually publish something that is meaningful and relevant.
