Premier Rachel Notley says that while results were supposed to come out this month, the government wants more time to make sure it gets the details right.
She says it's hoped the results will be released in early January.
Notley also says the plan will be "highly sensitive" to the difficult times in the oilpatch.
A panel is currently reviewing aspects of the royalty regime to determine, among other things, whether Albertans are getting a fair share of the profits.
