Clean Growth Infrastructure Royalty Program
The Clean Growth Infrastructure Royalty Program (CGIRP) encourages new capital investment in oil and natural gas infrastructure. The program creates and sustains good paying jobs for British Columbians and stimulates new royalty revenue while helping to achieve Government’s greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction targets 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. For projects that are approved a company must fully fund and complete an approved project before it can apply to recover up to 50 percent of the project’s cost in the form of a royalty deduction.

The British Columbia Ministry of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources was requesting applications from companies in the oil and gas industry to participate under the Clean Growth Infrastructure Royalty Program 2019 RFA from February 13 to May 10, 2019 at 2:00 pm. The CGIRP 2019 RFA has now closed.
