The Alberta Upstream Petroleum Research Fund (AUPRF) program continues to support sustainable development and balancing protecting human & ecological health and economic performance. The program contributes to the responsible development of our resources. The Soil & Groundwater projects are a great example of how the funds are applied to generate knowledge and achieve risk & science based implementation. The results are IMPRESSIVE!
