About the Electronic Assignment Service

The department, in cooperation with Alberta Energy, has developed an online service that will enable clients to request the assignment of surface dispositions electronically.

At this time, the system allows for full assignment of disposition types:

  • Easement (EZE)
  • Licence of Occupation (LOC or DLO)
  • Mineral Surface Lease (MSL or DMS)
  • Pipeline Installation Lease (PIL)
  • Pipeline Agreement (PLA or DPL)
  • Vegetation Control Easement (VCE or RVC)

The electronic assignment service extends the functionality of the existing Electronic Transfer System, developed by Alberta Energy, for oil and gas agreement transfers.

The electronic assignment service will allow the administration process to be significantly reduced due to online entry and verification. Industry will have all information available to them online to complete a request for an assignment.
