10:20 a.m.        Assessing the potential of retaining more oil & gas sector

supply chain activity in the province

David Campbell, President, Jupia Consultants

Early in the development of a new sector, much supply chain activity will be undertaken by well-established firms outside the region. Over time, more and more of that activity will stay in the region. David Campbell will look at supply chain spending trends in Newfoundland and Labrador’s oil & gas development industry, including where economic activity is taking place, sub-sectors which are most likely to benefit other jurisdictions and what the trend has been over a 10-year time frame. Recommendations relating to how the province could retain more supply chain spending while maintaining the industry’s competitiveness with other jurisdictions will also be discussed.
