Environmental Studies Research Fund (ESRF)
The Environmental Studies Research Fund (ESRF) was established under the Petroleum Resources Act (PRA) to finance environmental and social studies relating to oil and gas exploration, development and production in the Northwest Territories (NWT). The ESRF is directed by the Environmental Studies Management Board with representation from the Government of the Northwest Territories, the oil and gas industry and the general public. The ESRF is funded through levies paid by oil and gas companies holding publicly administered petroleum interests in the NWT.
