The Government of Alberta is seeking proposals for a qualified third-party program delivery agent to implement the Alberta Methane Emissions Program (AMEP), formerly called the Fugitive Emissions Management Program (FEMP).
The $17-million program, funded by the Technology Innovation and Emissions Reduction (TIER) fund, will support rapid technology testing that will help Alberta reach its methane emissions reduction goals and generate new learnings to improve methane management in Alberta.
Grant funding proposal objectives
Through the AMEP, grant funding will be delivered to oil and gas producers, technology companies, innovators, service providers, data management professionals, and researchers.
Proposals for program delivery must demonstrate how the delivery agent applicant will achieve the following primary objectives:
- Effectively allocating grant funding to the three AMEP components:
- Alternative Fugitive Emission Management Program proposals that meet Alberta Energy Regulator requirements.
- data management and analytics.
- technology development trials.
- Building on existing knowledge, testing innovative methane monitoring programs to generate and disseminate new scientific knowledge on performance and cost.
- Generating robust program-level equivalence assessments that compare alternative testing results to standard methods outlined in the current regulatory requirements.
- Improving understanding of fugitive and vented methane emission sources in Alberta.
- Establishing protocols or processes to ensure consistent collection and evaluation of high quality data.
- Delivering accessible, transparent and credible program results.
- Leveraging strong relationships across broad stakeholder groups and outlining clear plans for stakeholder involvement, including voluntary participation.
- Maximizing participation from a broad range of technologies, work practices, and programs, including new technology providers that have not yet participated in an Alternative Fugitive Emission Management Program.
- Indicate how the program will align with existing government programs and networks.
The successful delivery agent will possess the following qualifications:
- Direct experience working with government greenhouse gas reduction programs and regulations.
- Direct experience in fugitive emissions management and technology deployment, with a preference to those familiar with Alternative Fugitive Emission Management Programs proposals.
- Direct experience designing and implementing complex data management systems.
- Resourcing competencies required to manage the day-to-day program, with experience in the mandatory requirements areas.
- Technical expertise pertaining to technology evaluation, data collection, data management, and data analysis for emissions data, oil and gas infrastructure data, project management, and technology data.
- Strong established relationships and track record of collaboration with diverse stakeholders from industry, government, academia, technology companies, and service providers.
- Relevant experience in the province of Alberta and the oil and gas industry.
- Have a team that is located primarily in Alberta.
- Launch of the AMEP will follow the selection of a delivery agent.
- Program launch is required to commence prior to June 1, 2021.
- Interested applicants are encouraged to submit a completed application.
