When you think of oil and gas in Canada, you might just think of Alberta, but oil and gas is an important part of our national energy mix.
Canada’s first well was drilled in Ontario in 1858! Over the past 150+ years, our oil and gas industry has become ever more sophisticated and streamlined. Today, many thousands of trained experts in several industry sectors work together to pull Canada’s oil and gas resources from deep reservoirs scattered under every province and territory. These experts also drive the innovation and implement the technology that lowers emissions associated with the extraction, production and transportation of oil and gas.
Meeting the increasing energy demand of developing nations while satisfying the need to transition to lower emissions is complex. Canada’s oil and gas will continue to play an important role in meeting the energy needs of Canadians and those living beyond our borders too.
