Description and history
The Trust is a Calgary-based conventional oil and gas royalty trust, created in May 1996. The Trust generates monthly cash distributions, paid to its Unitholders, by acquiring, developing, producing and selling crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids in Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario.
The Trust is actively managed by NAL Resources Management Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Manulife Financial. In addition to manage its oil and gas properties, the Trust runs the oil and gas operations on behalf of Manulife Financial. In 2002, total production managed by the Trust averaged 24,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d), with the Trust’s share amounting to 8,712 boe per day. At year-end, the Trust held 29.6 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe) in reserves, with plans for a $30 million development program to be applied to a number of drilling opportunities in 2003.

Unitholders receive monthly distributions based on the revenue generated by the Trust.
