Clean Growth Infrastructure Royalty Program

The Clean Growth Infrastructure Royalty Program (CGIRP) encourages new capital investment in oil and natural gas infrastructure beyond what would occur otherwise. The program creates and sustains good paying jobs for British Columbians and stimulates new royalty revenue while helping to achieve the Province’s greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals and methane reduction targets.

Through the Clean Growth Infrastructure Royalty Program, oil and gas companies can apply for a deduction to the royalties they would otherwise pay to the Province under a competitive Request for Applications process. This deduction can be as much as 50 percent of the cost of projects that are approved under the program.
