We hold events, such as community meetings and formal hearings, across the province to share information. We also want to hear from indigenous communities, Albertans, and other stakeholders who inform our decisions about energy regulation.

Closure Nomination Program

The Closure Nomination Program is a community-level initiative that allows eligible individuals and groups the opportunity to nominate an oil and gas well, or facility for closure work.  It was developed to involve those eligible as active participants in the inventory reduction process. 

The Closure Nomination Program is one of several liability management initiatives put in place to tackle the ongoing risks and costs associate with inactive or abandoned oil and gas infrastructure in the province.

The AER is hosting three engagement sessions in September and October to share information about the program. The information presented will be specific to each audience group, as seen in the table below. If you are interested in learning about this program, we encourage you to register to attend the online session most applicable to you.

Community Events

We engage with communities across Alberta by sharing information about the work that we do, helping people understand how to have their voices heard, and getting feedback on proposed changes to our requirements, to name a few ways.


Hearing commissioners conduct oral, written, or electronic hearings on energy development projects. Our hearings calendar gives an update on the latest AER hearings, all of which are audio cast live.

Technical Briefings

Like most regulators, our requirements are often seen as complex and technical. To provide clarity to those who need it, we often host technical briefings to share updates and answer questions. These briefings take place in person or online. View past briefings on our YouTube channel.
