The BC Oil and Gas Research and Innovation Society (BC OGRIS) is an independent organization intended to address knowledge gaps, inform environmental operational and health and safety policy and industry practices related to oil and gas exploration and development.

BC OGRIS funds research projects under the following categories:

  • Environmental research projects related to: methane; water; seismicity; and air.
  • Engineering and Safety Research related to pipelines; wells, facilities and other.
  • Indigenous Programs related to: Aboriginal Liaison programs; and Indigenous Restoration (Pilot) projects
  • Restoration


The University of British Columbia Energy and Environment Research Initiative (EERI) is a field focused research program that uses a number of scientific studies to understand the potential environmental risks posed by energy resource development. The primary focus is to increase knowledge on fugitive gas leaks from resource development and to increase understanding of unintentional gas transport through shallow groundwater and into the atmosphere.
