The Petroleum Registry of Alberta C. Change Initiation/ Change Management
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Change Initiation The Registry Team encourages feedback from all Industry users on ways to improve the performance and functionality of the Registry application. Your method of communication to the Registry may vary depending on the nature of the issue. If not sure on who to contact first, always start with the Registry Service Desk. No concern is too big or too small !
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Short Term Issues –These can generally be described as a business process in the Registry that is not performing to your expectations. If so, contact: Registry Service Desk –A HEAT ticket will be raised. –Should a change be required, it will flow into the Registry’s Change Management Process. –Communication on the correction will occur either through the Registry’s “Tips and Alerts” area (if broad-based) or via a phone call from the Service Desk (individual-based)
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Longer Term Issues –The Registry is performing correctly in terms of its day- to-day business operations, however you may have a suggestion for change. In this case, contact: Industry Benefits Committee –Other IBC members can confirm if this is an issue for them as well, or if it is in fact unique. –IRT staff are present at IBC meetings – they may be able to respond to the issue immediately or carry the issue for you. Registry Enhancement Suggestion Form –Found on Registry website, under “Service Desk” –Form is faxed to Service Desk, and sent to Business Change Manager (BCM). –BCM collects the suggestions and works with IRT to log the item and determine its feasibility to move forward to IBC, etc.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Policy Issues For issues surrounding the underlying Ministry or Registry Policy, contact: –Industry Benefits Committee Will either support pursuing the matter or determine the matter is not of concern to other Industry companies. –Industry Manager (Ross Weaver) Will determine if the matter should be reviewed with the IBC, even if the initiator is unable to attend the IBC meeting.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Governance For questions or concerns on the ongoing governance of the Petroleum Registry, contact any combination of : –Industry Manager (Ross Weaver) –Registry Advisory Committee Chair (Dave Van Kampen) –Registry Steering Committee Industry Representatives (Joanne Weiss (CAPP); Jim Screaton (SEPAC))

The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Change Management Distinction between Problem Management and Change Management –Not all ‘problems’ will require a change to the Registry application. Initiation for change can originate from a variety of sources: HEAT ticket Registry Team Communication Ministry Staff Communication
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Change Management (con’t) The application employed by the Registry to manage change: Visual Intercept or “VI”. Changes are reviewed each week by the Change Management Team, which is comprised of each of the stakeholder groups: –DOE (all business units) –EUB –Industry –Registry AT and Registry Development The Change Management Team determines the priority and timing of each and every VI.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Change Management (con’t) Priority setting is an integral aspect of the Change Management Process. Each VI is analyzed for its scope and impact: Scope HHHCC MMHCC MMMHH LLMMH LLMMH Impact
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Change Management (con’t) Change Items (VI’s) are slotted into monthly releases. VI's that are implemented outside of the release boundary (mid month, for example) follow the same process as release items. The Registry’s release cycle is generally the first Wednesday of each month, however check the Registry Calendar and Broadcast Messages for any updates. The Change Management process follows the DOE’s System Delivery Lifecycle methodology. The Registry’s Acceptance Testing area includes members of all stakeholder groups.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Change Management (con’t) The Change Management Team has been busy! Approx open change items at go-live, 50% critical/high. Currently 350 open change items, 0 critical, 30% high. Over 2200 post go-live items raised and 1900 closed; over 1700 pre go-live items raised and 1650 closed. Initiative under way to review the open high items, to confirm they are in fact still a high priority. Please make sure to also review the “incident list” and “resolved list” in the Service Desk area of the Registry website Tremendous improvements made to the Registry since go- live….but we’re continually trying to making it better!
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta EUB Update A.Coal Bed Methane B.Water Reporting C.Reporting Error Rates D.Pipeline Shadow Billing
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta A. Coal Bed Methane Coal Bed Methane (CBM) also known as natural gas in coal (NGC). Two new well status fluid codes will be available in the Registry October 6 th 2004: –Coal Bed Methane – Coals and other Lithologies (CBMOT) Well is completed in coal and another lithology (e.g. Sands, Gravel) Fluid Code 22 –Coal Bed Methane – Coals Only (CBMCLS) Well is completed in coals only Fluid Code 23 New well status fluids codes will be used with existing mode codes e.g. –CBMCLS Flow N/A N/A –
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Coal Bed Methane (con’t) New CBM wells brought on production must use new status. Existing CBM wells coded as Gas are expected to be changed to CBM by the end of this year (2004). CBM wells have the same business rules as Gas wells. No changes to volumetric reporting requirements. An Alert will be issued by September 30 th, 2004.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Water Reporting May 23, 2003 EUB agreed to CAPP’s request not to impose noncompliance fees on metering differences for water. This was subject to EUB review of reporting. A recent review found an unacceptable level of water balance errors. –Total number of monthly water errors are close to total number of chargeable errors. –Trend indicates fewer errors are being corrected.

The Petroleum Registry of Alberta C. PA Work Cycle Originated as one of several initiatives to help reduce occurrence of “last minute filing” by operators. Issue is impact on other operators that need the data Other approaches included –Calls between operators –Letters to late filers, follow-up by IRT –EUB tracking –Vendor system discussions (on-going) –Company follow-up Will be reviewed in Training Session. This is a recommended approach developed by the IRT/IBC to address an ongoing issue…but it may not apply in all situations
