Management Act. 
1   The Specified Gas Emitters Regulation (AR 139/2007) is 
amended by this Regulation.

2   Section 1(1) is amended by adding the following after 
clause (p):
	(p.1)	"opted-in facility" means a facility designated as an opted-in 
facility under section 2.1(4);

3   Section 2 is repealed and the following is substituted:
Application
2   This Regulation applies to the following facilities:
	(a)	a facility that has direct emissions totalling 100 000 tonnes or 
more in 2003 or any subsequent year;
	(b)	an opted-in facility.
Opted-in facilities
2.1(1)  In this section, "competitively-impacted facility" means a 
facility, other than a facility described in section 2(a), that competes 
directly with a facility described in section 2(a).
(2)  A person responsible for a facility may apply to the director for 
the facility to be designated as an opted-in facility.
(3)  An application under subsection (2) must
	(a)	contain the information required by the director in the form 
and manner specified by the director, and
	(b)	be received by the director on or before June 1, 2017.
(4)  The director may designate a facility as an opted-in facility if
	(a)	the application meets the requirements under subsection (3),
	(b)	the director is satisfied the facility is a 
competitively-impacted facility, and
	(c)	in the opinion of the director it is appropriate for the facility 
to be designated as an opted-in facility taking into 
consideration the circumstances that the director considers 
relevant, including, without limitation, whether or not any 
benefits have been or may be provided directly or indirectly 
in respect of the facility under an initiative of the 
Government of Alberta, or an agency of the Government of 
Alberta, that could alleviate the impact of the carbon levy in 
respect of the facility.
(5)  The director shall notify the person responsible for a facility in 
writing of the director's decision as to whether to designate the 
facility as an opted-in facility.

4   Section 15 is amended by adding the following before 
subsection (1):

for 7 years after the year in which the application was made.

5   Section 20 is amended
	(a)	in subsection (1) by adding ", other than an opted-in 
facility," after "for a facility";
	(b)	by adding the following after subsection (1):
(1.1)  If the director has not established a baseline emissions

its 4th or subsequent year of commercial operation in 2017, the 
person responsible for the opted-in facility shall apply for the 
establishment of a baseline emissions intensity for the facility on 
or before October 1, 2017.

6   Section 21 is amended

	(b)	in subsection (2) by adding ", other than an opted-in 
facility," after "a new facility";
	(c)	by adding the following after subsection (2):
(3)  The baseline emissions intensity for an opted-in facility must 
be determined by one of the following methods:
	(a)	by calculating the ratio of total annual emissions to 
production of the facility for 2015 as expressed in the 
following formula:
BEI = TAE2015 
             P2015 
 
where
	BEI          	is baseline emissions intensity;
	TAE2015   	is total annual emissions for 2015;
	P2015        	is production for 2015;
	(b)	by an alternative method specified in writing by the
