Alberta Petroleum Royalty Guidelines
The Principles, Procedure and Appendices (commonly referred to as the Guidelines) are issued to assist operators and participants in determining crude oil royalties, royalty exemptions and reductions. The Alberta Petroleum Royalty Guidelines interprets the relevant energy legislation (statutes and regulations) and the Minister's discretion.
The Guidelines describe the principles involved in assessing, levying and collecting Alberta's Crown royalty share of crude oil produced from lands under a Crown lease agreement. It also describes the procedures for carrying out the assessment, levy, and collection of royalty.
** Important Update:
The Department of Energy has made some important changes to the Low Productivity Well Royalty Reduction Regulation, Reactivated Well Royalty Exemption Regulation and the Horizontal Re-entry Well Royalty Reduction Regulation. Please follow the links to the Information Letters outlining the changes.
