O.C. 696-2014, s. 43; S.Q. 2016, c. 35, s. 268; 871-2020O.C. 871-2020, s. 16.
43. The person responsible for a well must send to the Minister within 30 days before the fracturing operation begins, the fracturing program planned. The program must be signed by a professional and must include
(1)  a plan of the well showing
(a)  the location of the well, including its geographical coordinates, the cadastral designation of the lots concerned, a map and an aerial or satellite photograph of the well;
(b)  the name and number given to the well in the drilling authorization issued under the Petroleum Resources Act (chapter H-4.2);
(c)  the type of well;
(d)  the segment or segments of the well to be fractured and the projected vertical depth of the well;
(e)  the date or dates planned for the fracturing;
(f)  the name of the person responsible for the fracturing and the name of the professional who will supervise the work;
(2)  the type and total volume of fluid that may be injected;
(3)  the maximum pressure that may be generated by the fluid injected;
(4)  the composition of the fluid injected including, for each compound, the following mentions:
(a)  the name of the compound, its function and its concentration in the fracturing fluid;
(b)  if applicable, the name of each substance contained in the compound, the number given to each substance by the American Chemical Society for identification purposes (CAS number) and their concentration in the compound;
(c)  the name and the contact information of the supplier of the compound;
(5)  the composition, structure and geo-mechanical behaviour of the encasing geological formations;
(6)  a three-dimensional assessment of the propagation of the fractures, and the description of the method used to perform the assessment;
(7)  the determination of the parameters above which an incident is likely to occur during a fracturing operation, such as the maximum pressure to be used to prevent damage to the well or a propagation of fractures to a preferential path of the fluid flow;
(8)  a description of the monitoring that will be done for the implementation of the program and the verification of the parameters provided for in subparagraph 7, and the nature of the data that will be collected in such a monitoring, in particular the volume of fluids injected and pressure variations.
The description of the monitoring provided for in subparagraph 8 of the first paragraph must include a microseismic monitoring or, where such monitoring is already performed in the same geological formation during a fracturing operation in similar wells, an analysis of the data collected in the monitoring.
