Release Date: Jan. 16, 2020

EFFECTIVE DATE: Jan. 30, 2020


The BC Oil and Gas Commission (Commission) releases regular updates to the Application Management System (AMS) to improve workflow and functionality.

Application Analysis Tool

o General enhancements are being made to the Application Analysis Tool to allow shapefile validations as appropriate.


Historical Submissions for Roads and Road Amendment Applications

o Applicants will no longer receive an error when submitting spatial data, including cancelled road segments.


Historical Submissions for NEB Road right-of-way and NEB Pipeline right-of-way

o Spatial polygons for NEB rights-of-way will now be accepted in a historical submission.


NEB Pipeline Right-of-Way Amendments

o In an NEB technical pipeline right-of-way amendment, AMS will no longer display technical details, as this data is not required. 

 An updated Spatial Data Submission Standards Manual, reflecting the changes found in this release, will be available with the February monthly documentation updates. 


Please note: The recently re-named Canadian Energy Regulator (CER) is referenced as National Energy Board (NEB) in AMS.
