Pay an oil and gas royalty

We collect a royalty on the oil and gas extracted from Yukon. However, as there is no oil and gas production happening at the moment, no royalties are being collected.

We calculate the royalty amount using a royalty return. The royalty return will include:

  • the quantity of oil, gas, and field condensate extracted;
  • the royalty payable;
  • any allowances that apply; and
  • the prescribed prices for resources.

Read guidelines on how the royalty for oil and gas is calculated.

Pay your royalty

  1. We'll draft your royalty return approximately 3 weeks after the end of a production month.
  2. We'll email you the return. We'll include a your royalty statement. If we levy a penalty or interest in a production month, we'll also send an invoice for the amount.
  3. You or your agent reviews the draft royalty return to verify it. If an error is determined, you can apply for a recalculation. Contact the Geothermal and Petroleum Resources Branch to learn how. Phone 867-667-5026 or email [email protected].
  4. If the royalty return is correct, have an authorized person sign it.
