person to whom the notice is given within the time 
prescribed, or
	(b)		the appeal is not prosecuted with reasonable speed or is later 
discontinued or abandoned or is dismissed by the Board,
that person is, subject to subsection (3), estopped from denying that the 
person was the operator of the well, coal mine or oil sands project on 
the prescribed date in an action by the Board under this section for the 
recovery of the administration fee imposed in respect of that well, coal 
mine or oil sands project.
(3)  If the defendant in an action under this section had previously 
appealed to the Board under this Regulation or any predecessor of this 
Regulation on the ground that the defendant was not, on the prescribed 
date, the operator of the well, coal mine or oil sands project concerned 
and the Board after hearing evidence relating to that ground made a 
finding that the defendant was the operator on the prescribed date, 
subsection (2) does not apply, but the burden is on the defendant to 
prove that the defendant was not the operator of the well, coal mine or 
oil sands project concerned on the prescribed date.
(4)  The defendant in an action under subsection (1) may join as a 
co-defendant any person the defendant claims was the operator on the 
prescribed date of the well, coal mine or oil sands project concerned 
and, in that event, the court may, if it upholds the claim, give judgment 
against that co-defendant for the amount of the administration fees and 
penalties owing by that co-defendant.
Liability for payment
10   If the operator who is liable for an administration fee
	(a)	was not the operator on the prescribed date of any of the 
wells, coal mines or oil sands projects described in the notice 
or of any particular wells, coal mines or oil sands projects, or
	(b)	is no longer in Alberta, has become bankrupt or insolvent, is 
no longer carrying on business in Alberta, refuses to pay or 
does not pay,
the liability for the payment of the administration fee is on the person 
who was the licensee of the well or coal mine or holder of the approval 
under the Oil Sands Conservation Act for the project, as the case may 
be, on the prescribed date.
Expiry
11   For the purpose of ensuring that this Regulation is reviewed for 
ongoing relevancy and necessity, with the option that it may be 
repassed in its present or an amended form following a review, this 
Regulation expires on August 1, 2013.
Consequential amendment
12   The Oil and Gas Conservation Regulations (AR 151/71) 
are amended by repealing Part 16.
