AER orders are legal documents that formally permit, direct or prohibit a specific action or actions. Orders help us ensure that oil and gas companies operate in a safe and environmentally responsible way. Orders can be issued for different purposes; for example, we might order a company to

• reduce its normal spacing of wells;

• close or abandon a facility; or

• stop an unsafe activity or operation.
