Road Use Agreements

Road Use Agreements (RUA) are used to ensure the Oil Company is aware of the responsibilities and policies the Municipality has in place for movement on roads under their control.

Most Municipalities require one of three different types of Road Use Agreements (RUA).
  1. Annual Road Use Agreements are issued to the Prime Contractor or Carrier and are valid for either a single year term or they are continuous for the amount of time the Prime Contractor or Carrier is doing business in the Municipality. They provide a blanket agreement for all roads within the Municipality.

  2. Site Specific Road Use Agreements are issued to the Prime Contractor for a specific LSD or Facility. They are valid for a single year or the length of time the Prime Contractor is the owner of the LSD of Facility. All sub-contractors hired by the Prime Contractor have permission to use the RUA as long as all conditions of the RUA are followed. Some Site Specific Road Use Agreements list a designated route of travel that must be followed from the nearest highway to the location.

  3. Single Trip Road Use Agreements are issued to the Prime Contractor or Carrier and are valid for a single trip from point to point using a designed route.
Municipalities requiring a Road Use Agreement need one in place PRIOR to any type of movement within the Municipality. For a list of Municipalities who require a RUA represented by RDS please click on the Document Download menu option.
