​The Ministry of Energy and Resources is advising of an IRIS system enhancement going live on April 10, 2021 which will automate land ownership calculations. Upon implementation, the system will be doing  a full review and update of the existing Royalty/Tax Attributes (RTA). To avoid possible Royalty/Tax Payer (RTP) errors, it is highly recommended that you run your ‘Royalty/Tax Payer Missing/Incomplete’ report as the RTA may have changed resulting in a mismatch between the RTA an​d your existing RTP information. For further information related to the IRIS change please visit https://publications.saskatchewan.ca:443/api/v1/products/112528/formats/126557/download​. Any questions or concerns can be directed to ER.Servicedesk@gov.sk.ca

​On April 5, 2021 the AER updated Petrinex with current BA Licence Eligibility Type information to align the data between AER systems and Petrinex, and as a result you may have received a BA Change by AER notification indicating the most current BA Licence Eligibility Type status. For some BAs, Petrinex did not display the current BA Licence Eligibility Type status, and this update was made to reflect the current BA Licence Eligibility Type as determined by the AER in accordance with Directive 067. If you require more information please refer to Directive 067 or contact us at PA.Help@aer.ca.

​Updated: The Department of Energy (DOE) has advised that the Petrinex PAD reports created in January 2021 may have incorrect data as the reconciliation process included VOL/SAF/OAF amendments for the 2017 production year, submitted from January 1 to January 19, 2021. Please note that these amendments were rejected by the DOE and will not impact gas royalties as the 2017 production year became statute barred after December 31, 2020. ​Effective February 4, 2021 the 2017 production year data will no longer be available on the Petrinex PAD report.  For more information, please contact the Volumetric & Cost Reporting Team at  VCR@gov.ab.ca .

Beginning in April 2021 calendar month, Alberta Energy will be modifying the compensation for over-delivery volumes without requiring claim back submissions in Petrinex. This change impacts over-deliveries and failure to amend penalties.  However trucking requests will continue to be submitted via Petrinex for Transportation Allowance and Over-delivery claims. For specific details please see IB 2020-04: Auto-Payback of Crown Over-Deliveries Change found at https://open.alberta.ca/publications/information-bulletin-oil .  Note: all existing rules and Failure to Amend penalties will apply until these changes take effect​.
