The Alberta Energy Regulator has worked with the Alberta Government and a test site in Meadow Creek with Sucor.  This new process is called an Integrated Decision Approach which means new oil and gas projects can get up and operating faster.  This would lead to greater job creation in our region. 

Press Secretary Mike Mckinnon stated "The new system bundles all applications into a single one, which cuts approval timelines dramatically, saving industry hundreds of millions and eliminating the need to submit the same information over and over again. Simplifying the process will also increase fairness and transparency for landowners, municipalities, Indigenous communities and not-for-profit organizations. It will make it easier, less expensive, and less time-consuming to participate in the process and make their voices heard."
