Let’s make Canadian energy competitive
According to the International Energy Agency, the rebalancing of global oil markets has become less certain and Canada’s natural gas production is projected to stay flat for the next five years due to pipeline constraints, LNG delays and the US shale boom. On top of these geopolitical developments, companies face carbon taxes, regulatory reforms and political uncertainty at home. There are bright spots – a low dollar, an assault on costs and focus on the highest value assets has enabled the energy sector to weather the downturn. Polls show that the world prefers Canadian energy over other exporters. Coal phase outs are spurring activity in power and renewables, and a decline in input costs is stimulating downstream industrial activity.
Against this complex backdrop is Canadian energy destined for a lost decade? Or is industry adapting, diversifying and regaining competitiveness more rapidly than is generally understood? Find out at the fourteenth annual Calgary Energy Roundtable conference.
