Canada’s Oil and Natural Gas Industry Showcases Informative and Data-Based Research

CALGARY, AB, Dec. 13, 2023

Today the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) released a series of energy research presentation books. These documents are unique to CAPP and intended to provide Canadians, policymakers, and the media with credible, research-based information about Canada’s oil and natural gas industry. These are the first four of a series of books that will form a robust knowledge library.

“I am proud of today’s launch of the CAPP Data Centre. This central hub of information about the Canadian upstream oil and natural gas industry is another important milestone in the CAPP mandate to be a credible, non-partisan, research-based industry association.  Throughout 2024, CAPP will continue building this resource so that our stakeholders — policymakers, think tanks, governments, regulators, and the media — will know where to go and will have confidence that we are the one-stop resource for the most recent facts and data related to oil and natural gas in Canada,” said Lisa Baiton, President & Chief Executive Officer, CAPP.

The following chapters are now available here on our website:

  • Canadian Oil and Gas Industry Overview: Summary of the industry, global context, industry evolution, geology, structure of the industry, character of drilling and investment;
  • Canadian Oil and Gas Production: Summary of key trends, long-term history, production total and by province and how Canada compares to other jurisdictions;
  • The Economic Impact of Canadian Oil and Gas: Summary of key trends, revenues, royalties, industry spending, operating costs, cashflow, capital spending and economic impact;
  • Canadian Oil and Gas Export Infrastructure: Summary of key trends, main natural gas and crude oil pipelines, history of flows by pipeline/rail, pipeline capacity versus supply for export and future transportation capacity (TMX, LNG Canada, other potential).

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. Our associate members provide a wide range of services that support the upstream industry. CAPP’s members produce nearly three quarters of Canada’s annual oil and natural gas production and provide more than 400,000 direct and indirect jobs in nearly all regions of Canada. In 2022 across Canada, our industry contributed $111 billion to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in addition to paying $45 billion in taxes and royalty payments. CAPP is a solution-oriented partner and works with all levels of government to ensure a thriving Canadian oil and natural gas industry. 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 GHG emissions from oil and gas production and support Indigenous participation and prosperity.
