SCEK - Overview

The Science and Community Environmental Knowledge (SCEK) Fund is an industry-sponsored fund overseen by the BC Oil and Gas Commission (Commission), the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), and the Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (EPAC). The SCEK Fund is administered by the Commission.

The SCEK Fund serves to enable relevant applied research to inform environmental and social matters related to oil and gas exploration and development in British Columbia. The Fund is results-based and generates improvements in conducting efficient, effective and transparent regulation of oil and gas activities in BC.

Research priorities are defined from knowledge gaps identified in conjunction with our stakeholders. Research priorities are documented in a business plan available on the “About” page. Opportunities for obtaining funding for research projects are listed on the “Opportunities” page.
