  • The Program will apply a cost per tonne threshold to ensure value for money;
  • Applicants are required to provide information on minimum funding required;
  • Applicants are required to provide information on how their proposed projects surpass regulatory requirements; and
  • The repayability scale is revised.

Who can apply?

An oil and gas company, or a provincial, territorial or municipal government that owns or operates an upstream and/or midstream conventional, tight, and/or shale oil and gas facility(ies) located in Canada.
