Natural Gas Pricing in Alberta
Keywords:Energy Law, Petroleum Law
AbstractThis paper studies the legislation initiated by both the federal and the Alberta governments in the field of gas pricing in Alberta; explains the workings of the operative sections of such legislation; defines and discusses the factors used in the legislative formulae respecting gas pricing, and provides actual examples of such pricing. The role of the Alberta Petroleum Marketing Commission in the pricing and movement of gas from field to consumer within Alberta, or to the Alberta border for ultimate consumption elsewhere is also discussed. Potential problems respecting the interpretation and application of the Alberta legislation are also studied.
