Areas of Focus
NAIT Applied Research Chair in Oil Sands Environmental Sustainability
We invested $1.5 million to establish the Ledcor Group Applied Research Chair in Oils Sands Environmental Sustainability at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) that focuses on developing real-world solutions for oil sands operations, based on industry-driven research.
Pipeline Integrity Institute
We are proud to become a foundation partner for the Pipeline Integrity Institute (PII), a new institute at UBC that will provide training and research towards pipeline integrity that launched 2015.
The vision of the Pipeline Integrity Institute is to champion world-leading practices and innovation through advanced education, training, and applied research towards safer pipelines. The Institute will contribute to the global search for pipeline best practices and innovation.
Their studies on the performance of pipelines subject to ground movements, such as those arising from landslides and earthquakes, and expertise in pipe materials and protection of pipelines will help in moving towards zero-incident pipelines that serve the needs of communities and the environment.
