funding and managing research and technology development for newfoundland and labrador's oil and gas industry

Petroleum Research is a federally-incorporated, not-for-profit organization that facilitates research and technology development and delivers value to members by identifying opportunities, developing proposals, and funding and managing the execution of projects on behalf of the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore oil and gas industry.

We are a member-based organization that seeks proposals for research and technology development projects that address the operational, technical and business needs of our members.

Petroleum Research issues Requests for Proposals (RFPs) which focus on 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.  We also accept unsolicited proposals from individuals or organizations conducting research in a particular subject area or field that is of potential interest to our members.
