AbstractThis article discusses the constitution, jurisdiction, practice and procedure of the Alberta Oil and Gas Conservation Board pursuant to the provisions of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act. The article considers the duties and functions of the Oil and Gas Conservation Board in hearing an application to remove gas from the Province pursuant to the provisions of the Gas Resources Preservation Act and describes the procedure used by the Board to determine whether there is a supply of gas that is in excess of the needs of Alberta and therefore available for export. The article concludes with an analysis of the role of the Gas Utilities Board in protecting the public interest of Albertans in the Province's supply of gas.
