may be made before or after the time period in question has expired.
(5)  If a time period is extended under this section, the individual who

to occur or be completed.

records pertaining to a patient.
Exemption by Commissioner

oil sands projects)] x 3.907532
		where
	A 	is the number of Class 2 oil sands projects approvals 
held by the operator;

sands projects.
(6)  The administration fee payable by an operator of one or more 
Class 3 approved oil sands projects is the amount, in respect of each 
project, calculated in accordance with the following formula:

		where
	A 	is the fixed amount as listed in Table A which 
corresponds to the applicable production range from 
Table A that contains the amount that is determined by 
dividing the difference between the maximum amount 
of bitumen volumes that may be produced by the project 
in the base year under the approval and the volumes that 
were actually produced by the age of the approval or the 
most recent amended approval, calculated from the date 
of issuance to December 31 of the base year and 
rounded up to a full year (but if the bitumen volumes 
produced exceed the maximum amount that may be 
produced, A is $5000);
	B 	is the variable rate as listed in Table A which 
corresponds to the applicable production range from 
Table A that contains the amount that is determined by 
dividing the difference between the maximum amount 
of bitumen volumes that may be produced by the project 
in the base year under the approval and the volumes that 
were actually produced by the age of the approval or the 
most recent amended approval, calculated from the date 
of issuance to December 31 of the base year and 
rounded up to a full year (but if the project did not 
produce any bitumen in the base year or if the bitumen 
volumes produced exceed the maximum amount that 
may be produced, B is 0);
	C 	is the amount determined by dividing the difference 
between the maximum amount of bitumen volumes that 
may be produced by the project in the base year under 
the approval and the volumes that were actually

amended approval, calculated from the date of issuance 
to December 31 of the base year and rounded up to a 
full year.
(7)  The administration fee payable by an operator of one or more 
Class 4 approved oil sands projects is the amount calculated in 
accordance with the following formula:
		Fee for Class 4 = [(A x $10 000) + B + (C x total bitumen 
volumes produced in the base year by the operator's Class 4 
oil sands projects)] x 1.442944
		where
	A 	is the number of Class 4 oil sands project approvals held 
by the operator;
	B 	is the fixed amount as listed in Table B which 
corresponds to the applicable production range from 
Table B that contains the total bitumen volumes 
produced in the base year by the operator's Class 4 oil 
sands projects;
	C 	is the variable rate as listed in Table B which 
corresponds to the applicable production range from 
Table B that contains the total bitumen volumes 
produced in the base year by the operator's Class 4 oil 
sands projects.
(8)  The administration fee payable by an operator of one or more 
Class 5 approved oil sands projects is the amount, in respect of each 
project, calculated in accordance with the following formula:
    Fee for Class 5 project = [$10 000 + A + (B x C)] x 10.077213
		where
	A 	is the fixed amount as listed in Table B which 
corresponds to the applicable production range from 
Table B that contains the amount that is determined by 
dividing the difference between the maximum amount 
of bitumen volumes that may be produced by the project 
in the base year under the application or approval and 
the volumes that were actually produced by the age of 
the approval, the most recent amended approval or the 
most recent application for an amendment to the 
approval, calculated from the date of issuance to 
December 31 of the base year and rounded up to a full 
year (but if the bitumen volumes produced exceed the 
maximum amount that may be produced, A is $2500);
	B 	is the variable rate as listed in Table B which 
corresponds to the applicable production range from 
Table B that contains the amount that is determined by 
dividing the difference between the maximum amount 
of bitumen volumes that may be produced by the project 
in the base year under the application or approval and 
the volumes that were actually produced by the age of 
the approval, the most recent amended approval or the 
most recent application for an amendment to the 
approval, calculated from the date of issuance to 
December 31 of the base year and rounded up to a full 
year (but if the project did not produce any bitumen in 
the base year or if the bitumen volumes produced 
exceed the maximum amount that may be produced, B 
is 0);
	C 	is the amount determined by dividing the difference 
between the maximum amount of bitumen volumes that 
may be produced by the project in the base year under 
the application or approval and the volumes that were 
actually produced by the age of the approval, the most 
recent amended approval or the most recent application 
for an amendment to the approval, calculated from the 
date of issuance to December 31 of the base year and 
rounded up to a full year.

telephone, or in writing.
Recovery of fees
9(1)  Any administration fees and penalties owing to the Regulator 
under these Rules may be recovered by the Regulator in an action in 
debt against the person liable to pay it.
(2)  If a notice is given in accordance with section 6 and, in respect of 
any well, coal mine or oil sands project described in the notice,
	(a)	no appeal is taken to the Regulator under these Rules by the 
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 Regulator,
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 Regulator 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 Regulator under these Rules or any predecessor of 
these Rules 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 Regulator 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 these Rules are reviewed for 
ongoing relevancy and necessity, with the option that they may be 
repassed in their present or an amended form following a review, these 
Rules expire on May 31, 2018.
Coming into force
12   These Rules come into force on the coming into force of section 
29 of the Responsible Energy Development Act.
