The Science and Community Environmental Knowledge (SCEK) Fund is an industry-sponsored fund overseen by the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), the Small Explorers and Producers Association of Canada (SEPAC) and the BC Oil and Gas Commission (Commission). The SCEK Fund is administered by the Commission.
The SCEK Fund serves to enable relevant applied research to manage the 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 the oil and gas industry, regulators and government agencies, First Nations and other stakeholders (e.g., communities, members of the public). 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.
