CALGARY, ALTA. – The Alberta Energy Regulator says N7 Energy Ltd. has pled guilty to violating the province’s Water Act.
The regulator says it laid the charge against the Calgary-based oil and gas company in August 2022.
According to an agreed statement of facts, in August 2020, N7 Energy started construction activity at a bridge over a creek near Swan Hills, Alta. without prior approval from the regulator.
At the time the work was carried out, the creek was in a restricted activity period designed to protect fish populations during migration and spawning.
The AER says N7’s construction work also posed a significant erosion risk to the creek bed and shore.
N7 Energy has been ordered to pay a $70,000 fine.
