Partnership brings companies into compliance with Regulatory programs

October 10, 2014

Calgary, Alberta — Niven Fischer Energy Services Inc. (Niven Fischer), International Resource Management (IRM) and Matrix Solutions Inc. (Matrix) today announced their unique partnership to help oil and gas companies manage wellsite compliance and liabilities.

The partnership provides turnkey asset liability management solutions to help keep Alberta’s oil and gas producers in compliance with the changes the Alberta Energy Regulator has made to two regulatory programs – the Licensee Liability Rating (LLR) Program and the Inactive Well Compliance (IWC) Program. The last phase of LLR Program changes goes into effect May 2015 and the IWC Program goes into effect April 2015.

In speaking on behalf of the partnership, Randy Green, Managing Principal at Niven Fischer said, “Changes to the LLR Program force companies to recognize increased abandonment and reclamation costs and deal with liability obligations in a timely manner. The IWC Program forces operators to deal with wells that are not compliant with Directive 13 over five years. Our partnership can assist client companies with building a liability management plan under the new rules and executing on that plan in an efficient and cost effective manner. Our integrated project management and collaborative approach allows client companies the benefit of maintaining strict controls over budgets and operational priorities on the asset liability side, while keeping internal resources focused on adding shareholder value.”

Each of the partners brings distinct services to the program: Niven Fischer provides expertise in project management, strategy and asset optimization; IRM provides efficient downhole programming and field operations, and Matrix is expert in all aspects of environmental assessment, remediation and reclamation.
