Pipeline Operator

A pipeline operator controls the flow of oil, gas and other materials depending on the type of plant or facility in B.C. that carries:

  • oil or natural gas products
  • water intended for the production of oil or natural gas

Pipeline operators do not operate pipes that distribute natural gas in a community to consumers.

As a pipeline operator, you are required to file reports to verify your volumes.

BC-35, Crude Oil & Condensate Monthly Pipeline Statement

You submit a BC-35 to report the volumes of B.C. oil, condensate and pentanes-plus delivered through your systems. This information is used to verify BC-S2 delivery volumes and BC-S1 production volumes.

Due Date

You must file your BC-35 by the 25th day following the month you receive the oil deliveries.

If the due date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or statutory holiday, the due date is the next business day.

If you file your reports after the due date, you will be charged late filing penalties



Amendments

If you need to amend your BC-35, you will have to resubmit the entire form within 72 months from the producing month. Please read the guidelines (PDF) for further information.

Keep working papers and supporting documentation until you obtain written permission for their disposal in the event that you are audited.
