World oil demand hit a record 103 million barrels a day in June 2023, while global LNG consumption is projected to grow 76 per cent by 2040. [1][2] As long as the world needs oil & natural gas, shouldn't it be Canadian? 

• Poland, Germany, Japan, South Korea and many other countries want sustainable and reliable Canadian energy to replace less responsible supply sources abroad. [3][4][5]

• A net global GHG reduction equivalent to removing all of Canada's emissions could be attained by helping Asia switch just 20 per cent of its coal power plants to low-emission Canadian liquefied natural gas (LNG). [6]

• If minimal Canadian flaring standards were used worldwide, the amount of GHGs emitted from producing the average barrel of oil would drop by 23 per cent. [7]

• Responsible energy development in Canada is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for economic reconciliation with First Nations looking to generate own-source revenues and improve socio-economic conditions within their communities. [8]

• As the world approaches 9 billion people and energy demand grows rapidly by 2050, all forms – oil, natural gas, wind, hydro, solar, hydrogen, geothermal, nuclear, etc. – will be needed to maintain adequate energy supplies. [9] We need to support all forms of energy to balance sustainability, energy security and affordability.

• Canadian oil & natural gas is expected to generate $1.1 trillion in government revenues from 2000 to 2032 while generating countless more private sector funds used by our responsible producers to help develop new innovations and cleantech to assist in transitioning towards a lower-emission energy future.
