UCalgary, UAlberta partner with Mexico on oil, gas research

March 15, 2017

Canadian universities have received funding through Mexico’s Ministry of Energy Hydrocarbon Fund, which sees Canadian researchers “partner with Mexican research institutions to modernize and improve that country’s growing oil and gas sector.” The University of Calgary will reportedly receive $44M to support four joint research projects that seek to aid energy reforms in Mexico, while the University of Alberta will receive $14M to pursue three joint research projects. “Encouraging more of these outstanding research partnerships in our universities and colleges is a clear example of the value that our co-operation brings to Albertans and Mexicans,” said AB Minister of Energy Margaret McCuaig-Boyd. “These investments help our two countries develop energy resources in sustainable ways, create employment, and develop valuable learning and research opportunities.” UCalgary | Edmonton Journal
