BHP Billiton’s Multi-year McGill Contract

In 2014, McGill completed the ATI requests originally filed in 2012 relating to fossil fuel research contracts.

McGill informed us that it has research contracts with Imperial Oil, nexen, Statoil ASA, Royal Bank of Canada, BHP Billiton, Xstrata, Rio Tinto. But of these companies only two–Imperial Oil and BHP Billiton, to their credit–agreed to release partially redacted contracts to us.

In this document from 2010, BHP Billiton renews a five-year contract with a McGill professor, after a previous $1.68 million contract.
