Description:The Alberta Department of Resource Development and the Energy and Utilities Board, together with stakeholders, have taken actions to facilitate electricity generation from solution gas that would otherwise have been flared. Key priorities have been the creation of a royalty waiver programme (announced in July 1999) removing barriers to electricity generation using solution gas that otherwise would be flared (e.g., exempting otherwise flared solution gas from the Electric Utilities Act).
