Dear Mr. McKay:

  • Canada Energy Regulator (CER)
    Canadian Natural Resources Limited (CNRL) and Preventative Action (CAPA) Plan Audit Close-out Letter

In accordance with subsection 49(3) of the National Energy Board Act, subsequently the Canadian Energy Regulator Act, the CER conducted a compliance audit of CNRL on 1 August 2018. The audit examined aspects of CNRLs Integrity Management Program. The key objective of the audit was to verify that CNRL has developed an Integrity Management System as required by the Canadian Energy Regulator Onshore Pipeline Regulations (OPR) for the effective management of the hazards and associated risks of its facilities and activities.

The CER issued its Final Audit Report (Report) to CNRL on 27 March 2019.

The CER conducted follow-up compliance verification activities to verify implementation and compliance. The results of the latest Implementation Assessment (IA) activities are contained in the IA Report attached to this letter. The report indicates that CNRL has implemented its CAPA Plan as approved.

The CER now considers this audit to be closed. CNRL is accountable to maintain compliance throughout the life cycle of its regulated facilities. The CER will verify ongoing compliance through future compliance verification activities. If you require any further information or clarification, please contact Niall Berry, Lead Auditor, at 403-471-1921.

Yours sincerely,

Niall Berry, Lead Auditor
