Approved with conditions
Conditions
For the reasons set out in the decision in this matter, the Energy Resources Conservation Board (ERCB/Board) has determined that Timothy M. Cooney was a person in direct control of SynCo Exploration Inc. (SynCo) and that SynCo contravened ERCB requirements and failed to comply with Board orders while Timothy M. Cooney was in control of SynCo. Therefore, the Board names Timothy M. Cooney under section 106 of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act (OGCA) and places the following restrictions on him: 1)The ERCB may suspend operations of a licensee or approval holder under the OGCA or a licensee under the Pipeline Act over which Timothy M. Cooney is, in the opinion of the ERCB, a director, officer, agent, or other person in direct or indirect control. 2)The ERCB may refuse to consider any application for an identification code, licence, or approval or a transfer of a licence or approval under the OGCA or the Pipeline Act from Timothy M. Cooney or any company over which Timothy M. Cooney is, in the opinion of the Board, a director, officer, agent, or other person in direct or indirect control. 3)If the ERCB were to consider an application from Timothy M. Cooney or any company over which Timothy M. Cooney is, in the opinion of the Board, a director, officer, agent, or other person in direct or indirect control, the ERCB may require the submission of abandonment and reclamation deposits in amounts determined by the ERCB prior to granting any licence, approval, or transfer to an applicant, transferor, or transferee under the OGCA. 4)Any company that holds or is applying to the ERCB for an identification code, licence, or approval or the transfer of a licence or approval under the OGCA or the Pipeline Act and in which Timothy M. Cooney is a director, officer, agent, or other person involved with that company must inform the ERCB of his status within the company and that a section 106 declaration is in effect against Timothy M. Cooney. 5)Timothy M. Cooney must submit a sworn declaration by June 10, 2013, declaring that he is not a director, officer, agent, or other person involved in a company that is an applicant to the ERCB, a licensee, or an approval holder under the OGCA or the Pipeline Act, or if he is, declaring the name of the company or companies and specifying the applications it has before the ERCB and the ERCB licences and approvals the company holds. 6)Timothy M. Cooney cannot act as an agent of a company as defined under section 1(1)(c) of the OGCA or section 1(1)(c) of the Pipeline Act for any company for the purposes of those acts. 7)This declaration is in force at the date of this decision and will remain in force until SynCo has complied with the above-mentioned Board orders, rectified its contraventions, and paid its debts to the ERCB and to the account of the orphan fund for abandonment costs or until the Board orders otherwise.

Approved with conditions
Conditions
Conditions of Approval 1) The Board believes it is imperative for Shell to continue to improve its understanding of corrosion in both lined and bare pipelines. The Board requires Shell to continue to conduct internal inspection of the Carbondale pipeline system once every six months using the Russell tool. In the event that Shell can demonstrate that corrosion remains under control it may, following consultation with WAG, apply to the ERCB to reduce the inspection frequency. 2) The Board directs Shell to submit a revised ERP before the start-up of the pipelines and facility. 3) The Board requires Shell to conduct a blind major exercise in accordance with Directive 071, section 14.10 – Exercise Requirements, before the pipelines become operational. This exercise must involve a pipeline release scenario and must test the use of shelter-in-place as a means of protecting residents in the area. Area residents should be contacted and asked to shelter so that Shell can test their knowledge of how to shelter-in-place. The exercise should be designed and developed by an independent consultant in consultation with a limited number of senior Shell personnel who would not have a role in responding, as well as with ERCB staff. Shell’s operations staff, mutual aid partners, and other responders that Shell would rely on to respond to an actual incident should not have any prior knowledge of the specific timing or scenario of the exercise to help ensure that it is as much of a realistic simulation as possible. Shell can provide general advance notice to these parties of its intent to conduct a major exercise within a general time frame so that it can obtain a commitment from the parties regarding their intended level of participation in the exercise. In accordance with Directive 071, section 14.10 – Exercise Requirements, Shell is expected to invite the MD of Pincher Creek, Alberta Health Services, and any other government departments or agencies that would have a role in an actual emergency and strongly encourage their participation in this exercise. 4) The Board directs Shell to implement the nine recommendations outlined in the RWDI report before producing the WT68 well with the following exception. During the hearing, the Board heard that Shell plans to phase-in the fence line monitors identified in recommendation number three in order to allow Shell to properly assess the chosen technology. The Board agrees that this is reasonable and accepts Shell’s plan to phase-in the fence-line monitors. However, the Board directs Shell to install the first perimeter H2S monitor at WT68 before producing the WT68 well. The other perimeter H2S monitors can be installed after the start of production and testing of the perimeter system. Shell stated that it will continue to provide updates to WAG on the progress it makes on the recommendations from the RWDI report. The Board expects these updates to be provided regularly and that Shell will continue its involvement with the Air Monitoring Technical Subcommittee. Commitments by Shell 1) Shell will conduct a tabletop or field exercise and invite third-party responders to participate. 2) Shell will pay to conduct an air exchange rate test on Mr. Judd’s residence and assess the suitability for sheltering-in-place. 3) Shell will continue to welcome further discussion with Mr. Judd about the recommendations in the RWDI report and the participation of Mr. Judd in the siting of the proposed air quality monitoring and meteorological station should he contact Shell and discuss a willingness to participate. 4) Shell will contact Mr. Judd for an ERP update and include Mr. Judd’s tent camp in the ERP. 5) Shell is willing to meet with Mr. Judd outside the hearing process to discuss concern about the horses that he noted he had lost in 2007. 6) Shell will review the integrity reference plan for the Waterton 68 pipeline with the Pipeline Technical Subcommittee at the next technical committee meeting.

Conditions
Conditions generally are requirements in addition to or otherwise expanding upon existing regulations and guidelines. An applicant must comply with conditions or it is in breach of its approval and subject to enforcement action by the AER. Enforcement of an approval includes enforcement of the conditions attached to that licence. Sanctions imposed for the breach of such conditions can include the suspension of the approval, resulting in the shut-in of a facility. The conditions imposed on the licence are summarized below. The Panel notes that Dover has made certain promises and commitments (collectively referred to as commitments) to parties involving activities or operations that are not strictly required under AER requirements. These commitments are separate arrangements between the parties and do not constitute conditions of the AER’s approval of the application. The commitments that have been given some weight by the Panel are summarized below. The Panel expects the applicant to comply with commitments made to all parties. However, while the Panel has considered these commitments in arriving at its decision, the Panel cannot enforce them. If the applicant does not comply with commitments made, affected parties can request a review of the original approval. At that time, the AER will assess whether the circumstances of any failed commitment warrant a review of the original approval. CONDITIONS The Panel notes the following commitments made by Dover, which the Panel has decided to make conditions of the approval [see paragraph 131]:
Plant-wide fugitive emissions will be identified and controlled using the protocol recommended by the Environmental Code of Practice for the Measurement and Control of Fugitive Emissions from Equipment Leaks (Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment, 1993).
A leak detection and repair system will be implemented.
A program will be developed and implemented to detect and repair leaks, and that program must meet or exceed the CAPP Best Management Practice for Fugitive Emissions Management.
A low oxides of nitrogen emissions technology will be selected as required by the Alberta Interim Emission Guidelines for Oxides of Nitrogen for New Boilers, Heaters and Turbines using Gaseous Fuels for the Oil Sands Region (Alberta Environment, 2007).
VRU will be used to reduce hydrocarbon emissions.
There will be no continuous flaring other than of pilot and purge gas.
Odour indicator species will be continuously monitored.
A protocol must developed for responding to odours, including investigating the source of the odour, notifying communities near the Project, addressing the odour source, and monitoring to verify that the source of the odour has been addressed. The Panel also requires the following:
Dover must provide a plan to mitigate SO2 emissions and meet AER Interim Directive 2001-03 on a project-wide basis. The plan must be submitted to the AER for review. [See paragraph 129.]
The scheme approval must include directional and motion-sensitive lighting at the plant sites, well pads, and associated facilities. [See paragraph 137.] COMMITMENTS BY DOVER
Dover committed to a coordinated approach to wildlife monitoring in the region and to a deer and wolf management program in collaboration with ESRD and other in situ operators. To reduce effects on caribou habitat, Dover proposed on-site mitigations that reflect standard industry practices, as well as an off-site caribou habitat enhancement program. [See paragraph 72.]
Dover indicated that it would manage access to its Project at a gate located about 30 km southwest of Fort McKay IR174. Dover noted that there will be control gates at each of its processing plants, but that these plant sites are only small areas of the Project. Dover also committed to restricting access to its operations and prohibiting workers residing in its camp from using all-terrain vehicles for recreational use while on site. [See paragraph 84.]
Dover committed to accommodating Fort McKay members who wish to access their traditional lands through the Project area. [See paragraph 150.]
