Canada’s Upstream Oil & Natural Gas Industry
The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) is a non-partisan, research-based industry association that advocates on behalf of our member companies, large and small, that explore for, develop, and produce oil and natural gas throughout Canada.
We strive to meet the need for safe, reliable, affordable, and responsibly produced energy, for Canada and the world. We are proud to amplify industry efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from oil and natural gas production and support Indigenous participation and prosperity.
Oil is produced (extracted) using different methods depending on geology and location. After recovering the oil, it is sent to refineries to create refined products we use every day, such as gasoline.
Uses for Oil
Canadians consume a lot of products made from oil. In fact, Canadians used 110 billion litres of refined oil products in 2018. Oil is an important part of daily life in Canada and the world for transportation, heating our homes, and plastics used in clothing, electronics, and more.
Oil and Natural Gas Pipelines
Pipelines are a critical part of Canada’s oil and natural gas infrastructure. Pipelines are the safest and most efficient way to move large volumes of oil and natural gas from development areas to refineries, petrochemical plants and even to our homes and businesses for use.
Indigenous Partnerships and Prosperity
Responsible development contributes to greater Indigenous partnerships and prosperity, supporting the growth of sustainable Indigenous communities.

Petroleum in Real Life: Money
You can take it to the bank: polymer currencies last longer, are more sanitary and generate less emissions than their paper counterparts.
