Eligible Licensees: Nomination of Wells, Facilities and Flowlines
Once an eligible licensee has their funding allocation, they will be required to nominate wells, facilities, and flowlines through the Integrated Resource Information System (IRIS). Licensees are encouraged to take advantage of existing abandonment plans by nominating groups of wells, facilities, and flowlines that facilitates area-based closure.
If applicable, eligible licensees are asked to submit abandonment projects that cover up to 125% of their funding allocation. This will facilitate the formation of area based closure packages and will give the eligible licensee flexibility in the event that they are unable to abandon or reclaim a selected well, facility or flowline for any reason. Note that an eligible licensee cannot receive work that exceeds their funding allocation under Phase 1 and Phase 2.
Upon nomination of wells, facilities, and flowlines, eligible licensees will identify preferred major contractors. The program will make every effort to facilitate the licensee's use of preferred service companies, though this may not be possible in all circumstances.
The template for the nomination of wells, facilities and flowlines can be downloaded here: ASCP Data template.
Note: All licensees should review the supplemental document ASCP Nomination Process Supplemental Information Guide in conjunction with the online training module prior to engaging in the nomination process.
Licensees will nominate their wells, facilities and flowlines for abandonment and reclamation through the IRIS system.
The current list of infrastructure nominated for work under the Accelerated Site Closure Program can be found at ASCP Nominated Infrastructure List. Note: this file will be updated frequently.
To assist with the nomination process an online training module was prepared and can be found at User Learning Centre-Liability Management.
In addition to the online training module an ASCP Nomination Process Supplemental Information Guide has been prepared to address nomination questions.
To begin the nomination process, log in to IRIS.
Major service companies looking to participate in the program will apply through SaskTenders. The application will be evaluated using the eligibility criteria set out in the Qualifying Service Companies section and, if successful, the major service company will be added to the list of qualifying ASCP major service companies. Qualifying major service companies will be able to participate in work packages issued by the SRC. The application process has been opened on SaskTenders and interested service companies should review the information found at SaskTenders (Competition #7710A).
Minor contractors – those that do not provide one of the 14 major service types set out in the RFSQ – do not need to pre-qualify for the program.
