The University of Calgary, in collaboration with Mexican universities and research institutes, has received C$44 million (MX$646.94 million) in funding for four knowledge networks to support energy reforms in Mexico. The funding commitment follows from a partnership the university signed in December 2015 with the Mexican Ministry of Energy (SENER). The research focuses on four areas: heavy oil, mature and unconventional oil resources, pipeline loss reduction, and industry and labor market development. Research networks will be created through the University of Calgary’sGlobal Research Initiative in Unconventional Hydrocarbon Resources. The networks will be led by the University of Calgary and the lead Mexican partner institutions: the Instituto Mexicano del Petróleo and Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey. Funding is administered by CONACYT, a national funding organization in Mexico that works to advance science and technology. Research will be developed over the next three years.
