DMA’s Crown Royalties Review & Recovery service is a customized solution leveraged to identify and recover gas cost allowance credits (GCA), including:

  • Capital costs
  • Operating costs
  • Custom processing fees

A major part of our Crown Royalties Review & Recovery service includes a review of Alberta Oil Sands Royalties filings based on the current legislative framework to ensure all available benefits are received. Our team then provides expert recommendations for value-added processes to increase accuracy in reporting allowable costs. And finally, our Crown royalties specialists conduct a thorough analysis of your current gas cost allowance filings versus your detailed general ledger, along with an analysis of your royalty incentive applications. We also provide a detailed report of any royalty credit opportunities.
