Global Research Initiative international site

Through the Global Research Initiative in Sustainable Low Carbon Unconventional Resources (GRI), the University of Calgary has taken a leadership role in driving innovative research in unconventional oil and gas in China. Focused on collaborative research, education and training, the Beijing Research Site leverages the University of Calgary’s world-class expertise in unconventional hydrocarbon resources (UHR) and technologies such as shale and tight gas and oil, coal-bed methane, heavy oil, oil-sands bitumen and gas hydrates.

Located in the Kerui Group's offices in Beijing, the Beijing Research Site houses state-of-theart equipment and over 4000 square meters of laboratories for research related to unconventional hydrocarbon resources. This collaboration in China has led to many joint publications and growing research partnerships with companies, universities and institutions in China.
