Session Overview

Findings of the Fraser Institute’s 2017 Global Petroleum Survey underline the ever-changing nature of the oil & gas industry, with Newfoundland and Labrador now ranking as the most attractive Canadian jurisdiction for oil & gas investment and British Columbia and Alberta named least-attractive. This session will take a closer look at the survey results, including the impact of the regulatory environment, political stability, taxation and other factors on the findings. Delegates will also hear from the president of ExxonMobil Canada on the company’s offshore projects in this province and globally, as well as from Nalcor Energy on recent geoscience work and how Newfoundland and Labrador fits within the global industry.
