Well, facility, and volumetric data files – now available in Petrinex

Well, facility, and volumetric data files are now available to the public through Petrinex – an organization specializing in managing data on Canada’s oil and gas industry. Previously, this information was available to oil and gas companies by logging into Petrinex and to the public for purchase through the AER’s Products and Services Catalogue.


Data files that are now available, free of charge, through Petrinex include the following:

  • business associate
  • facility infrastructure
  • facility licence
  • facility operator history
  • well infrastructure
  • well licence
  • facility licence
  • well-to-facility link
  • conventional volumetrics (data for 2014 to 2018)

All data files are available to download in CSV or XML format and will be updated daily except for the conventional volumetrics files, which will be updated monthly.


As a result of these changes, the AER will be phasing out these data files and their listing in the Products and Services Catalogue will include links to Petrinex instead.
