Petroleum Research NL

Petroleum Research is a federally-incorporated, not-for-profit organization that funds and facilitates collaborative research and development (R&D) on behalf of Newfoundland and Labrador’s offshore oil and gas industry.

Petroleum Research is a member-based organization that seeks proposals for research and technology development projects that deliver value to oil and gas industry participants by addressing their operational, technical and business needs. Projects must fit within our Strategic Focus Areas and may range from early phase applied research, to full-scale technology adaptation or development. To qualify for funding, the research and technology development must take place in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Funding Mechanisms

Petroleum Research issues Requests for Proposals (RFPs) which are developed in a collaborative, targeted approach to address specific member needs. In addition, we issue an annual 'Call for Proposals' which addresses a Petroleum Research strategic focus area and provides an opportunity for proponents to submit a scope of work. Petroleaum Research also accepts unsolicited proposals from individuals or organizations conducting research in a particular subject area or field that is of potential interest.
