PETROLEUM ROYALTY REGULATION, 2017 
AMENDMENT REGULATION
Filed: February 15, 2017
For information only:   Made by the Lieutenant Governor in Council (O.C. 057/2017) 
on February 15, 2017 pursuant to sections 5 and 36 of the Mines and Minerals Act. 
1   The Petroleum Royalty Regulation, 2017 (AR 212/2016) is 
amended by this Regulation.

2   The Schedule is amended by repealing sections 5 and 6 
and substituting the following:
Calculation of rate for price
5(1)  In the case of a production month commencing with and 
subsequent to the January 2017 production month, the rp% for the 
purpose of section 4 of this Schedule is calculated in accordance 
with the following Table:
Rate for Price Table
Par Price
Formula
par price less than or equal to 
$251.70 per cubic metre
rp% = 10%
par price greater than $251.70 per 
cubic metre and less than or 
equal to $409.02 per cubic metre
rp% = [(par price - 251.70) x 
0.00071+0.10000] x 100
par price greater than $409.02 per 
cubic metre and less than or 
equal to $723.64 per cubic metre
rp% = [(par price - 409.02) x 
0.00039 + 0.21170] x 100
par price greater than $723.64 per 
cubic metre
rp% = [(par price - 723.64) x 
0.00020 + 0.33440] x 100
Maximum/Default
40%

Calculation of rate for oil equivalent volume
6   The rq% for the purpose of section 4 of this Schedule is calculated 
in accordance with the following Table:
Rate for Oil Equivalent Volume Table
Oil Equivalent Volume
Formula
oil equivalent volume greater 
than zero and less than 194.0 
cubic metres
rq% = [(oil equivalent 
volume - 194.0) x 0.001350] x 
100
oil equivalent volume greater 
than or equal to 194.0 cubic 
metres 
rq% = 0%

Oil equivalent volume is the total of all crude oil volumes, field 
condensate volumes and gas volumes using a conversion factor of 
1.7811.
