APPENDIX 2 SUMMARY OF 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 EUB. Enforcement of an approval includes enforcement of the conditions attached to that approval. Sanctions imposed for the breach of such conditions may include the suspension of the approval, resulting in the shut-in of a facility. The conditions imposed on the approval are summarized below. In the event that there is a discrepancy between this summary and the condition as set out in the main body of the decision report, the wording in the main body of the report shall prevail.
Suncor shall submit for EUB approval the detailed geotechnical designs for the External Overburden Disposal structure and the In-pit Overburden Disposal structure along the Steepbank River at least six months prior to field preparation in these areas.
Suncor shall submit for EUB approval a finalized plan for mining at the lease boundary between the NSME and Lease 29 five years prior to mining at this lease boundary. The plan should address the lack of drilling information on Lease 29 and contain a comprehensive evaluation of the lease boundary geology and reserves, geotechnical conditions, alternative mining scenarios and impacts, and associated costs, in accordance with Section 3.1 of ID 2001-07.
Suncor shall meet a lower requirement for its annual diluent losses. The lower diluent loss limit of 4.0 volumes of diluent per thousand volumes of bitumen will take effect November 1, 2008.
Suncor shall not mine oil sands from the North Steepbank Mine Extension that meet the requirements under ID 2001-07 until - it meets a CT efficiency of 76 per cent on a quarterly basis not later than the first quarter of 2009, - Pond 8 tailings storage is available for the deposition of CT, and - commercial CT production commences from the Millennium Extraction Plant.
Suncor shall provide to the Board detailed information on the ability of the CT stored in its tailings ponds to provide a trafficable surface for reclamation. This information should include annual pond surveys, sampling data, vane shear testing, and other information as specified by the Board.
Suncor shall provide detailed plans on the incorporation of supplementary tailings techniques to reduce Suncor’s MFT inventory in its annual tailings plan beginning in 2007.
Suncor shall provide an annual update of its efforts to coordinate mine planning and closure with other operators in terms of landform design, drainage, and material balances as part of its annual mine plan reporting.

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.]

Conditions
1) Prosper will place coarse woody debris to restrict access to existing linear disturbances that intersect its access road. 2) Prosper will prohibit firearms, fishing gear, pets and personal ATVs in Prosper’s Rigel project camps and worksites throughout the construction and operation phases of the Rigel project. 3) Prosper will install pumps at well pads and the CPF in buildings to reduce their noise contribution. 4) Prosper will notify Fort McKay First Nation, Fort McKay Métis and any other group Prosper chooses about planned events that may generate more noise than usual. 5) Prosper will establish a toll free line so anyone can access information on daily activities for the Rigel project and register any complaint or concern. 6) If Fort McKay Métis or Fort McKay First Nation shares with Prosper the specific location of a trail or traditional use site located within the Prosper lease, Prosper will work with the relevant community to avoid or mitigate any impacts to that site.
