Alberta’s energy sector is vast and complex; it’s our job to make sure companies develop oil, natural gas, oil sands, and coal resources responsibly. We work hard to protect public safety and the environment, and to ensure that anyone with concerns about development can have their voice heard.
Holding Industry Accountable
Our Compliance Dashboard details our work to respond to and investigate incidents, enforce the rules, and ensure that companies comply with our rules.
When an energy incident occurs, we examine the cause, identify the responsible parties, and look at how similar incidents can be prevented across the industry.
Our industry performance program holds companies accountable for their actions and helps ensure that energy resources are developed in a safe and responsible manner.
Protecting the Environment
We are committed to monitoring the environmental impacts of energy development and protecting what matters to Albertans: land, water, air, and biodiversity.
Our work includes allocating and conserving water, managing public lands, monitoring industry activity, and assessing environmental risk of proposed energy projects. Learn more:
Giving Albertans a Voice
We ensure that there are lots of opportunities get involved in the discussion about energy development and regulation.
We are looking at new ways to engage with indigenous communities across the province.
Let us know if something is happening at an energy operation or site that could have a negative impact on public safety or the environment.
