The Innovative Energy Technologies Program (IETP) supports technology that leads to additional recoverable reserves and royalties while improving environmental performance over current processes. The program was announced in 2004 is fully subscribed and is no longer accepting new applications.

The following table lists approved IETP projects reports are available through the project name link to the non-license section of open government. Files requiring specialized software (identified in the annual report table of contents) are only available upon request. All reporting requirements under the program have been completed.

The Government of Alberta does not endorse, authorize, certify, maintain or control the content of the reports. The Government of Alberta is not liable for any direct, indirect, special, punitive, incidental or consequential damages arising out of the use of this information. Users must contact the operator for terms of use.

*The objective of the CO2 Projects Royalty Credit Program was to encourage projects and application of technology that would lead to the expanded production of Alberta’s oil and gas resources through use of CO2 (carbon dioxide) injection into geological formations. The demonstration projects injected a mixture consisting mainly of CO2 for enhanced recovery of oil, natural gas, or coal bed methane.
