Runner-up – Innovative Development Award

Alberta Energy Regulator The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) ensures the safe, efficient, orderly, and environmentally responsible development of oil, oil sands, natural gas, and coal resources over their entire life cycle. For AER, the old way of thinking about regulating energy development was disjointed and inefficient. Companies would submit applications one at a time and then the AER would assess those separate applications in isolation. The organizational challenge was to find a new approach for regulating energy development. A long-standing user of OpenText Process Suite and Content Suite, AER developed a completely new application system called ‘OneStop’. OneStop focuses on improving the user experience to reduce the administrative burden on companies. Operators now submit applications into one digital platform that amalgamates the development activities. Since bringing OneStop online in July 2016, approximately 70% of all incoming applications are automated, meaning they do not require any review by AER’s technical experts. OneStop made a significant impact in supporting the way AER regulates the energy industry in Alberta. In addition to the resources that AER has been able to save, the energy industry itself has seen major savings in both time and money since the launch of OneStop. Over $90 million has been put back into operators’ pockets because of reduced decision timelines. This includes cost savings of $7,000,000 for reclamation certifications, $920,000 - $2,600,000 for new pipeline applications, and approximately $700,000 for an updated tour report submission process - all information that’s verified by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP).
