CNRL appealing $8,000 fine for building pond without AER approval

CNRL appealing $8,000 fine for building pond without AER approval

Canadian Natural Resources (CNRL) is appealing an $8,000 fine imposed by the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) for building a temporary pond at its Horizon Oil Sands Mine north of Fort McMurray, AB.

The 3,700 sq. meter settling pond built in the spring of 2003 knocks-out sediment in run-off water collected from site ditches during rain events and snow melt. CNRL allegedly constructed the pond without approval from the AER, despite notification from the AER that it was in violation of provincial regulatory procedures. The AER imposed an administrative penalty of $4,500 for the offence under the Environmental Enhancement and Protection Act and another $3,500 penalty for breaching the Water Act.

CNRL maintains that the pond was included in its 2003 application. There was no damage reported to the environment.
