Orphan Levy

The annual orphan levy is based on the revenue requirements identified in the Alberta Orphan Oil and Gas Abandonment and Reclamation Association (Orphan Well Association) budget. A licensee's annual levy is based on its proportionate share of sector liability as determined by the Licensee Liability Rating (LLR) program and the Oilfield Waste Liability (OWL) program.
