Integrated Resource Information System (IRIS)

The Integrated Resource Information System (IRIS) is an online business system that supports the development and regulation of Saskatchewan's energy and resources industry. Through IRIS, the oil and gas industry completes regularly performed business activities and regulatory tasks with the province online.

    2. Guidance

    You can complete the following activities on IRIS

    Petroleum Tenure Module
    Well and Facility Infrastructure Module
    Other IRIS functionality

    To use IRIS effectively, it's important that you understand the following concepts:

    Industry Self-Declaration: The Business Associate (BA) self-declares they have met the specific regulations or provided mitigation in accordance with policy before submitting applications, data, reports (etc.) in IRIS. It’s important that the BA know and understand what is required under the regulations, and that submissions will be reviewed for regulatory compliance. False declarations may have serious consequences; the Government of Saskatchewan has the ability to cancel or suspend an issued licence, withhold future approvals or force abandonment of a well.

    • Business Associate (BA): Any entity that conducts business activities with the Ministry of Energy and Resources is referred to as a BA.
    • Business Associate Identification Code (BA ID): Every BA must have an active BA ID, which is a five-character numeric identification code. BAs apply to the Government of Saskatchewan for a BA ID through Petrinex.
    • Petrinex: Petrinex is the system the oil and gas industry uses to submit volumetric, valuation, royalty taxpayer and certain infrastructure information to the Government of Saskatchewan. The Government also uses Petrinex to administer it's BA ID codes.  For more information about Petrinex, go to: www.petrinex.ca
    • IRIS Security Administrator (SA): The SA is responsible for managing all of the IRIS user accounts on behalf of the BA, including assigning permissions and ensuring proper security and risk management procedures are in place to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of the BA's data in IRIS.
    • Permission Sets: Permission sets (or a group of tasks) govern what activities an IRIS user can perform in the system on behalf of the BA. To perform any activity in IRIS, the user must have the appropriate permission sets assigned to them by the BA's Security Administrator (SA). A user may have many permission sets depending on the tasks he/she is required to perform in IRIS for the BA. 
    • IRIS User Accounts: BAs have individual IRIS users within their organization, and each of those users requires an IRIS account. IRIS user accounts are set up by the BA's Security Administrator (SA). What each user can perform and see in IRIS is assigned by the SA through permission sets.  
    • The Ministry of Energy and Resources (the Ministry): The Ministry is the Government of Saskatchewan organization responsible for development and regulation of the energy and resources industry, and is also responsible for the processes performed in IRIS.

    5. The BA's SA logs into IRIS using the account name and password. Once successfully logged in, the SA can begin setting up individual accounts and assigning permission sets for their BA's IRIS users.
