CALGARY, Oct. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - Athabasca Oil Corporation (TSX: ATH)
(Athabasca) has been informed that the Alberta Court of Appeal has issued its
decision in the Application for Leave to Appeal between Fort McKay First
Nation (FMFN) and Alberta Energy Regulator (AER), 2013 ABCA 355. The FMFN has
been granted leave to appeal on a question of constitutional law arising from
the AER approval of the Dover Commercial Project, issued August 6, 2013. Leave
to appeal is not a judgment on merits of the case and does not impact the
validity of the AER approval, but is restricted to a specific question of law
or jurisdiction. The appeal on the specific question will be heard at a later
date, yet to be determined.
The Dover Commercial Project, which is operated by Brion Energy Corporation,
is a joint venture between Athabasca and Phoenix Energy Holdings Limited.
