The Department of Energy should:
- improve controls over its royalty adjustment note disclosure—see next column
- ensure bioenergy grant recipients comply with grant agreements—see page 96
We repeated our recommendation to the Department to improve processes to recognize royalty revenue estimates as we continued to identify accounting errors and inconsistencies in the methods applied for bitumen royalty estimation—see page 97.
The Department has implemented our October 2009 recommendations to improve controls over the revenue forecasting system—see page 98.
Energy Resources Conservation Board
The ERCB has implemented our October 2005 recommendation to improve its systems for monitoring the timeliness of oil and gas companies’ suspension and abandonment of oil and gas sites—see page 98.
