The Board understands the frustration of residents about the time they spend dealing with matters arising from oil and gas development in the area; therefore, the Board advises that it will look to the quality of outcomes and not the quantity of consultation as a demonstration of success.
The Board directs Shell to conduct a drilling and completions ERP exercise prior to spudding the WT68 well and to involve interested stakeholders in the development and implementation of and follow-up to that exercise.
The Board directs Shell to control dust on the Seven Gates Road by watering the road as required based on the weather, road use, and road condition during drilling and completion of the well.
The Board directs Shell to have a traffic monitor close to the junction of Seven Gates Road and Highway 507 during drilling and completions of the well.
The ERCB directs that if Shell needs to test the well, the operational plans for this test, either in-line or by flaring, must be submitted to the ERCB for approval.

The panel instructs CNRL to
set surface casing for all wells at an elevation no shallower than 440 m above mean sea level,
conduct cement evaluation logs of the surface casing in each well after drilling to total depth and provide them to the Board for review and approval after setting the production casing,
run cement evaluation logs of the production casing in each well and provide them to the Board for review and approval before perforating the wells, and
refrain from conducting drilling operations, with the exception of well site construction operations, from June 1 until after September 5 (Labour Day).
CNRL committed to
complete a minimum of two bottoms-up circulations to ensure that the hole is clean,
conduct wiper trips using a stabilizer blade assembly to ensure that the hole is properly cleaned of drilling mud and cuttings and has sufficient filter cake to protect the shallow aquifers or permeable zones, minimizing the potential for bridging-off or loss of circulation,
use semirigid centralizers on every collar on both casing strings,
use a minimum of 6 m3 of good cement returns prior to displacement of the cement from the inside of the casing string with a wiper plug,
perform gas migration and surface casing vent flow tests within 90 days of rig release to confirm its procedures will successfully provide hydraulic isolation, and
promptly address concerns with odours, through either its own internal processes or external partners such as LICA, where appropriate.

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.]

SUMMARY OF CONDITIONS AND COMMITMENTS 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 may include the suspension of the approval, resulting in the shut-in of a facility. The conditions imposed on the licence are summarized below. Undertakings, 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 applications. The commitments that have been given some weight by the AER are summarized below. The AER expects the applicant to comply with commitments made to all parties. However, while the AER has considered these commitments in arriving at its decision, the AER cannot enforce them. If the applicant does not comply with commitments made, affected parties may request a review of the original approval. At that time, the AER will assess whether the circumstances regarding any failed commitment warrant a review of the original approval.
COMMITMENTS BY TECK Teck committed to providing FCM with Directive 056 notification at the same time it provides notification to other Fort Chipewyan-based First Nations in the future.
