AER Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act (EPEA) Applications


All sour gas processing plants with more than 0.01 mol/kmol H2S require an EPEA Approval. These approvals support and promote the protection and enhancement of the environment and address potential impacts of a proposed project on air, wastewater, groundwater, and soils. These approvals are term approvals; they can be issued for up to a ten-year period, requiring renewal prior to expiry and amendments for any processing changes.

Companies planning to build energy facilities are required to satisfy the NEB that they have anticipated environmental effects likely to be associated with their project.
