On behalf of Albertans, the Government of Alberta is the owner of 81% of the mineral rights in the province, which includes oil and gas. When companies develop the resources, they must pay the province - that's called a royalty. As resource owner, the Alberta government sets the terms and conditions for development and the royalty rates.
