Alberta Premier to annouce Natural gas incentives


The Stelmach government in Alberta now appears to be in full retreat, from its highly controversial royality policy.

It will provide details this morning on a new provincial drilling-incentive program, with the Premier vowing to restore the competitiveness of the province’s hard hit natural gas sector.
