The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Allowable Costs Overview The Registry will be available for AC1 submissions and querying on October 11, 2005. The DOE discontinued accepting paper submissions, effective September 15, 2005. This will allow the DOE to process all data to prepare for conversion. –See August, 2005 Gas Royalty Calculation Information Bulletin for more information. Business rules are unchanged. Current penalties for non-compliance are unchanged.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Allowable Costs Overview Registry screens for the AC1 are consistent with the look and feel of previous paper forms. Data contained in DOE systems is considered the ‘data of record’. A confirmed file will be sent to the Registry once the DOE has validated and confirmed the initial submission. Data input to the Registry can be performed online or by batch using xml or csv files. The Registry staff have been working closely with software vendors to ensure a smooth transition to Registry reporting.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Allowable Costs AC1 Process The FCC Operator completes an AC1 in the Registry to request a new FCC ID or to edit (change) an existing FCC. –Submissions can be completed by batch upload using a.csv or.xml file or by keying the information online. –For more information on batch uploads see Job Aid “GCA Upload Specifications” document in the Registry Training System.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Allowable Costs AC1 Process The Registry performs an initial validation of the submission, based on edits contained within the Registry. –All errors must be corrected prior to the file being sent to the DOE. –This record is saved in the Registry as an “Unconfirmed” record. –If the unconfirmed record is for a new FCC, you cannot edit or query the data until the confirmed record is received from the DOE. –If the unconfirmed record is for a change to an existing FCC, it can only be viewed on the AC1 Edit screen by the BA that submitted the record, but not queried. Once confirmed by the DOE, it can be queried.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Allowable Costs AC1 Process Once validated, the submission will be forwarded to the DOE for their validation and approval. –When the DOE accepts an AC1 request or change: the file is stored in the Registry as a “Confirmed” record and a notification is sent by e-mail to the operator. The operator can now edit or query the FCC. An owner listed in the AC1 can also query the FCC.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Allowable Costs AC1 Process –When the DOE rejects an AC1 request or change: The file is stored in the Registry as a “Rejected” record and a notification is sent by e-mail to the operator. A DOE rejection report will be sent to the Ministry Invoices and Statements area that will identify the reason for the rejection. This record is similar to an unconfirmed record, it can only be viewed on the AC1 Edit screen by the submitting BA.
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Allowable Costs AC1 Timing Registry –Processing of submissions is completed in near real time. DOE –The DOE workflow response time for an AC1 Setup is 4 hours (e.g. if the request is submitted in the morning, a response will be received in the afternoon; if a request is submitted in the afternoon, a response will be received the following morning (of the next business day).
The Petroleum Registry of Alberta Allowable Costs AC1 Timing –When editing an FCC, the DOE response will be received the next business day. The exception to this is during the DOE Gas Royalty Invoice cycle: –AC1 changes will continue to be processed by the Registry and submitted to DOE. However, these submissions will be held by the DOE until the invoice run is complete. –DOE Gas Royalty Invoice cycle refers to the specific activities surrounding the monthly generation of the Gas Royalty Crown Invoice. This generally encompasses the 16th to 23rd of each month (including non-business days), however can vary by 1-2 days, depending on the month.
