Industry Roadmap: The Future of Oil & Gas 2017

17 January, 2017 – Calgary

What’s the Future of Canada’s Oil & Gas Industry?

 

The Industry Roadmap: The Future of Oil & Gas 2017 event was convened by TheFutureEconomy.ca in Calgary, Alberta, on January 17, 2017. The event brought together public- and private-sector leaders to explore how the Canadian oil and gas industry can reinvent itself in order to emerge as a global energy leader in the low-carbon economy. Speakers and participants addressed and discussed the key challenges facing the oil and gas sector:

  • The Innovation Challenge: How can we instil a stronger culture of serial innovation within Canada’s oil and gas companies’ practices, strategies and DNA?
  • The Commercialization Challenge: How can we accelerate the path to local and international commercialization for Canadian oil and gas innovation?
  • The Productivity Challenge: How can we increase the speed at which we integrate productivity-boosting technologies and best practices within Canadian oil and gas companies’ operations and organizations?

 

The event’s Summary and Recommendations Report will soon be released here and widely distributed to industry, the government, stakeholders and the media.
