Saskatchewan Energy and Resources (SER) recently announced the release of Saskatchewan’s proposed flaring and venting standards, similar to flaring and venting standards for the upstream petroleum industry in Alberta (Directive 17 and Directive 60).
SER released draft versions of:
- Saskatchewan Upstream Petroleum Industry Associated Gas Conservation Standards, Directive S-10, Draft Version 1, June 1, 2010 (PDF)
- Saskatchewan Upstream Flaring and Incineration Specifications, S-20, June 1, 2010v (PDF)
At this point S-10 and S-20 are only drafts, but we’ll keep you up to date on any regulation changes we see and how the S-10 and S-20 regulations will be implemented.
It’s an important step forward for Saskatchewan in terms of flaring and venting regulation its awareness of greenhouse gas emissions. It should be interesting to see how Saskatchewan’s regulations end up and when its flaring and venting regulations will be implemented.
