Amended Venting and Flaring Directives

From February 8 to March 1, 2022, the Energy Regulation Division of the Ministry of Energy and Resources consulted with stakeholders on amendments to Directive PNG036: Venting and Flaring Requirements (Directive PNG036) and Directive S-20: Saskatchewan Upstream Flaring and Incineration Requirements (Directive S-20).

The proposed amendments clarify the requirements of Directives PNG036 and S-20 and remove overlap between these directives. They also aim to extend Directive PNG036 to pipeline operations governed by The Pipelines Act, 1998. As well, there are new requirements in Directive PNG036 relating to resident consent for flaring and updated exemption criteria for the ministry’s Leak Detection and Repair requirements.

Highlights of the proposed amendments may be found in the Notice of Proposed Directive Amendments. Inquiries regarding the proposed regulatory enhancements may be directed to the ER Service Desk at

A link to the finalized Directive and to a document outlining the ministry’s responses to feedback received during the consultation process may be found in Bulletin BT2022-003.
