during which the failure continues.

     (2)  For the purposes of subsection (1), a person has failed to

to furnish a report pursuant to a particular provision of section 19 in
respect of one or more months in the period commencing with February, 1996, 

               (b)  determines that the person had failed to furnish
the report or reports pursuant to that provision of section 19 by reason of
never having been previously aware of the requirement to furnish reports
under that provision, and 

               (c)  determines the month in which that person first
became aware of the requirement to furnish reports under that provision (in
this subsection called the "first awareness month"), 

     the aggregate of the penalties imposed on that person by subsection
(1) for the failure to furnish the report or reports under that provision
in respect of months preceding the first awareness month shall not exceed
$10 000. 

     (4)  Subject to subsections (5) and (6), the Commission may, on
application, waive a penalty imposed by subsection (1) on being satisfied

               (a)  that the person required to furnish the report
failed to furnish it in accordance with subsection (1) by reason of

                         (i)  circumstances beyond that person's
control,

                         (ii) circumstances that the person could not
have reasonably foreseen, or

                         (iii)     the person being unaware of the
requirement to furnish the report,

               and

               (b)  that, having regard to all the circumstances of the
case, the person furnished the report within a reasonable time after the
deadline for furnishing it.

     (5)  An application for a waiver under subsection (4) must be filed
with the Commission not later than 30 days after the date of the invoice
issued by the Commission for the penalty sought to be waived.

     (6)  The Commission may not grant a penalty waiver under subsection
(4) if

               (a)  the month in respect of which the report was
required to be furnished is January, 1998 or any subsequent month, and

               (b)  the application for the waiver is based on the
grounds described in subsection (4)(a)(ii) or (iii), or both.


Discretionary penalties related to section 19 reports
     21(1)  Where a person furnishes to the Commission a report under
section 19 relating to February, 1996 or any subsequent month, the
Commission may, subject to subsections (2) to (4), impose on that person a
penalty in respect of that report not exceeding $10 000 if 

               (a)  the information required to be contained in the
report is incomplete,

               (b)  information contained in the report is inaccurate,
or

               (c)  the information required to be contained in a
transmittal document accompanying the report is incomplete or inaccurate.

     (2)  Where penalties are imposed on a person under subsection (1)
with respect to reports required to be furnished by that person under
section 19 in respect of the same month, the aggregate of the penalties
imposed on that person under that subsection in respect of all of the
reports relating to that month shall not exceed $25 000.

     (3)  In deciding on whether to impose a penalty on a person under
subsection (1) or in deciding on the amount of a penalty to be imposed on a
person under subsection (1), the Commission shall have regard to at least
the following:

               (a)  the representations by that person as to liability
for the penalty or as to its amount;

               (b)  whether that person made all reasonable efforts to
comply with the requirements that gave rise to the Commission's
consideration of whether to impose the penalty;

               (c)  the magnitude of the quantities or amounts omitted
from the report or not furnished under any report or the extent of the
inaccuracy of the information in the report or transmittal document, as the
case may be;

               (d)  the impact of the unreported, omitted or inaccurate
information on the Commission's determination, at the Minister's request,

Reference Price for a month pursuant to section 6(1) of the Natural Gas
Royalty Regulation, 1994 (Alta. Reg. 351/93);

               (e)  the number of occasions on which that person was
informed by the Commission of any of the circumstances referred to in

be furnished or that were previously furnished under section 19 by that
person but in respect of which no penalty was then imposed under subsection
(1);

               (f)  the number and amounts of penalties previously
imposed by or pursuant to this section on that person.

     (4)  Where the Commission determines that

               (a)  a person is liable under subsection (1) for
penalties in respect of reports furnished under a particular provision of
section 19 and relating to any 4 or more months occurring after January,
1996,

               (b)  there is a consistent similarity in the nature of
the incompleteness or inaccuracies in the reports or the transmittal
documents accompanying them, as the case may be, that gave rise to the
liability, and

               (c)  the person had not been advised in writing by the
Commission prior to the furnishing of the last of the reports of the
incompleteness or inaccuracies and how to prepare future reports of that
kind, or the transmittal documents accompanying them, as the case may be,
in order to make them complete and accurate,

     the aggregate of the penalties referred to in clause (a) and imposed
on that person shall not exceed $30 000. 


Penalty invoice
     22   Where a penalty is imposed on a person by or pursuant to section
20 or 21, the Commission shall send to that person an invoice for the
penalty and inform that person of the reasons for its imposition and the

Commission.

direction by the deadline specified in the direction,

     that person is liable to pay to the Commission a penalty of $1000 and
an additional penalty of $1000 for all or part of each subsequent month
during which the failure continues.

     (5)  For the purpose of subsection (4), a person has failed to
furnish a statement to the Commission, whether before or after the deadline

                         (i)  is not in a form prescribed or approved

for in the direction, if the direction contains a requirement of that kind.

     (6)  Subject to subsections (7) and (8), the Commission may waive a
penalty imposed by subsection (4) on being satisfied

               (a)  that the person required to furnish the statement
failed to furnish it in accordance with subsection (4) by reason of

                         (i)  circumstances beyond that person's
control,

                         (ii) circumstances that the person could not
have reasonably foreseen, or

case, the person furnished the statement within a reasonable time after the
deadline for furnishing it.

with the Commission not later than 30 days after the date of the invoice
issued by the Commission for the penalty sought to be waived.

     (8)   The Commission may not grant a penalty waiver under subsection
(6) if

               (b)  the application for the waiver is based on the
grounds described in subsection (6)(a)(ii) or (iii) or both.

     (9)  Where a person furnishes a statement pursuant to a direction

statement is incomplete, or

               (b)  information contained in the statement is
inaccurate.

     (10)   Where a person fails to furnish a statement pursuant to a
direction given under subsection (1) after the coming into force of this
subsection and the Commission has not given an approval to that person
under section 25(a) relating to compliance with the direction, but the
Commission nevertheless considers it necessary in the circumstances to
conduct an audit or examination of that person's records for the purpose of
obtaining the information that should have been furnished in the statement,

               (a)  no further penalties may be imposed under
