Oil sands reporting calendar

Oil Sands Operations has developed a reporting calendar (PDF, 127 KB) that encompasses reporting timelines for the following:

  • monthly and annual royalty reporting and payment deadlines for Projects and Non-Projects
  • annual forecast reporting
  • oil sands monthly royalty rates, published Bank of Canada long-term bond rates and Bitumen Valuation Methodology (BVM) component publication
  • cost analysis and reporting enhancement (CARE) quarterly and annual reporting deadlines

Please note

The purpose of the calendar is to provide a quick reference to oil sands filing deadline information. Inadvertent omissions of reporting deadlines (from the calendar) do not constitute acceptable reasons for non-compliance with filing deadlines.

The calendar has incorporated filing deadlines that fall on weekends and/or holidays by moving the affected deadlines to the next business day.

Royalty project application forms

Project Application

Lessees who have, or are pursuing, an oil sands project may apply for royalty treatment under the provisions of the Oil Sands Royalty Regulation, 2009.

Projects that do not make an application under the regulation and are not covered by an existing individual agreement or the Experimental Oil Sands Royalty Regulation will be subject to Non-Project royalty under Part 4 Division 1 of the Oil Sands Royalty Regulation, 2009.

Applications and checklists

Non-Project well royalty reporting forms (NPR)

Prior to February 1, 2013, Non-Project well royalty was reported in the conventional oil sands royalty reporting forms.

Effective February 1, 2013, the form changed to the Non-Project Well Royalty Submission (NPR).

Please refer to IB 2012-13 for the new royalty reporting process for Non-Project wells.

Starting February 1, 2013, all NPR submissions must be reported either in the XML file format (XML, 3 KB)  or in the Excel alternative (XLSX, 771 KB).

The Par Price prescribed for oil sands is used to calculate the Crown’s royalty share for Non-Project royalty. See Par Prices for oil sands royalty calculation current par price/R multiplier letter.
