Rapid technological advancements coupled with a low-price environment has driven a wave of innovative, entrepreneurial companies seeking to improve the ROI for hydrocarbon production. There is unmet demand for E&P partners willing to trial unproven technologies, and many innovative oil and gas service companies regularly inquire to see if (and how) SR&ED tax incentives can be leveraged by E&P companies to offset financial risk and get their technology to field trial.
