Research facilitation and management for Newfoundland and Labradorís offshore industry

Maximizing the impact of R&D investments made by Newfoundland and Labrador’s offshore oil and gas industry is a multifaceted process that requires foresight, experience, stewardship and diligence.  Industry needs must be effectively identified and transformed into research opportunities.  And those opportunities in turn must be matched with local expertise and capability to deliver relevant and actionable research outcomes.  Petroleum Research is a member-based organization that delivers value to Newfoundland and Labrador’s offshore oil and gas industry by:

  • Developing research roadmaps, initiatives and programs that materialize member priorities;
  • Funding and managing research projects that maximize R&D investment and produce tangible economic benefits; and,
  • Encouraging local capacity development in research focus areas by hosting collaborative research events and creating targeted funding opportunities.

Environmental Genomics

Environmental genomics is the study of genes to characterize biological components of the environment. It has the potential to enhance or replace conventional approaches to environmental assessment and monitoring, at a faster and cheaper rate than conventional approaches.  ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company and Petroleum Research Newfoundland and Labrador hosted the first International Workshop on Environmental Genomics: Understanding the State of Science and Research Opportunities, in St. John’s, NL on June 2-3, 2016.
