     PART 3

     ROYALTY

     Division 1
     Unit Price and Other Net Proceeds

Unit price
21(1)  In this section,

     (a)  "oil sands product", in addition to the meaning given to it in
section 1(q), includes blended bitumen that contains crude bitumen obtained
pursuant to a Project; 

     (b)  "third party disposition" means

               (i)  the initial disposition of an oil sands product
obtained pursuant to a Project, made by or on behalf of a Project owner or
the operator of the Project to a person who is not an affiliate of either
of them, or

               (ii) a disposition of an oil sands product obtained
pursuant to a Project, made by or on behalf of a person to whom the product
was initially disposed of by or on behalf of the Project owner or operator,
if the person is an affiliate of the Project owner or operator and disposes
of the product to another person who is not an affiliate of the person or
of the Project owner or operator.

(2)  Subject to this section, the unit price applicable in respect of a
period of time to an oil sands product obtained pursuant to a Project and
delivered at a royalty calculation point for the product is the price
calculated in accordance with the following formula:

     where

     TC   is the total consideration, calculated in accordance with the
Minister's directions,  received or receivable by the seller under all
third party dispositions of the oil sands product during that period,
whether those dispositions occur before or after the oil sands product is
further processed;

     HC   is all handling charges, export charges, pipeline tariff
charges, processing charges and charges of a similar nature that

                         are paid to transport the oil sands product
so disposed of from the royalty calculation point for the product to the
place where those dispositions occur, and to process the oil sands product
at any place between those two places, and

                         are not allowed costs of the Project or costs
taken into account in determining prior net cumulative balance of the
Project or of a Project expansion;

     TD   is the total quantity of the oil sands product so disposed of.

(3)   Despite subsection (2), if the Minister is of the opinion that the
quantity of an oil sands product delivered at a royalty calculation point
and disposed of in third party dispositions is insufficient to determine a
reasonably accurate unit price pursuant to subsection (2), the unit price
for the product shall be the price determined by the Minister as the fair
market value of the product.

(4)  Despite subsection (2), if the oil sands product for which a unit
price is calculated is crude bitumen that is not cleaned crude bitumen (in
this subsection called "dirty crude bitumen"),

     (a)  the fair market value of the cleaned crude bitumen that is or
could be obtained from the dirty crude bitumen shall be used for the
purposes of the calculation of unit price rather than the consideration
received or receivable from dispositions of the dirty crude bitumen, and

     (b)  the charges referred to in subsection (2) shall, for the
purposes of the calculation of unit price, include charges of the kind
described in that subsection that the Minister is of the opinion would have
been incurred to transport the dirty crude bitumen from the place at which
it is disposed of to the place at which it is or could be processed to
produce cleaned crude bitumen, and to so process the dirty crude bitumen to
produce cleaned crude bitumen.

(5)  Charges referred to in subsection (2) or (4) shall not include any
marketing costs or charges, brokerage fees or other like costs or charges.


Other net proceeds
22(1)  The "other net proceeds" of a Project for a Period are

     (a)  the aggregate of the amounts described in subsection (2),

excluding

     (b)  any amounts described in subsection (3).

(2)  The following are the amounts for the purposes of subsection (1)(a):

     (a)  any consideration received or receivable during the Period from
the sale, lease, license or other disposition of any

               (i)  substances or assets of the Project, other than oil

crude bitumen shall be calculated at the last point of measurement before
the crude bitumen is permanently removed from the surface areas occupied by
the Project.

(2)  If cleaned crude bitumen

     (a)  is obtained from oil sands or crude bitumen that is a Project
substance without having first been disposed of and whether or not the

referred to in clause (a), at which it is obtained.

(3)  If an oil sands product, other than crude bitumen or cleaned crude
bitumen,

     (a)  is obtained at a processing plant that is part of the Project
from crude bitumen, cleaned crude bitumen or another oil sands product that
is a Project substance without having first been disposed of, and 

     (b)  is then

               (i)  disposed of without being further processed into
one or more other oil sands products at a processing plant that is part of
the Project,

               (ii) delivered to a processing plant or other facility

pre-payout Period, 

pay to the Crown the proceeds of disposition for that royalty share on or

     (a)  multiplying the quantity of the Crown's royalty share of the
oil sands product so disposed of, consumed or used by the unit price
applicable to the quantity (or, if the product is cleaned crude bitumen
contained in blended bitumen, the unit price applicable to the blended
bitumen), and

     (b)  if the oil sands product is cleaned crude bitumen that is

be paid by the Minister to the operator by the last day of the month
following the month in which the report provided under section 28(1) first
identifies the amount.

paid to the Crown under subsection (4) that have not been repaid under
subsection (7) in respect of the months of the Period, the operator must
pay the excess amount to the Crown by the last day of the 4th month
following the end of the Period.

(9)  If the aggregate of the proceeds payable to the Crown under subsection
(2) in respect of the royalty share disposed of during a Period as

royalty, the Minister may give a notice to the operator describing the
deficiency and what, in the Minister's opinion, was the cause giving rise
