In order to further examine this issue and explore ways, other than by regulation, to encourage industry to become more efficient in fuel gas usage, a government/industry working committee was established in April 2006. Currently, fuel gas optimization by industry is not a regulatory or legislative requirement. While there is a strong interest by regulators in Alberta in improving efficiencies, doing so without additional regulation is the preferred approach, provided it is successful. These BMPs are a first step to assist industry in identifying and implementing opportunities for greater fuel gas efficiencies. The success of this initiative will determine whether industry can proactively use these BMPs to improve efficiencies or whether regulatory initiatives are necessary.
