One Day – One Country: Canada

Canada Key Projects and Business Highlights 


The projects and acquisitions announced on first half 2013 by the international oil companies (IOCs) such as Apache, BG Group (BG) , Chevron, ExxonMobil, Idemitsu, Shell or TransCanada, and by national oil companies (NOCs) such as China National Petroleum Company (CNPC or PetroChina) or Petronas confirm the strategic evolution of the energy policy in Canada.

Until 2012, USA was appearing as the most important and nearly unique customer for Canadian oil and gas exports.

All the north to south pipelines projects and upgraded projects have been put on hold to transfer resources on west to east pipelines projects and the development of the shale gas and associated gas in Western Canada.

Focusing on the Asia market, Canada is expecting to short cut Australian and US exports of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the accumulation of LNG Trains project on the west coast of British Colombia.
