CAPP Issues Statement on Saskatchewan’s Growth Plan
November 14, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta
Today the government of Saskatchewan released its new Growth Plan which sets out key targets and a list of goals and actions to achieve those targets. CAPP has issued the following statement in response.
“The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers applauds the release of Saskatchewan’s new Growth Plan, and the leadership it demonstrates. Setting clear goals, and taking deliberate action to achieve those goals is a winning strategy for the province, and CAPP is committed to helping Saskatchewan achieve continued success in this regard.
In particular, we support the prominent role of the energy industry in this plan, and the goal of increasing oil production in the province to 600,000 barrels per day which also will help the province achieve its target of creating 100,000 new jobs by 2030. CAPP also applauds the plan’s objective of growing Indigenous participation in the economy through the growth of Saskatchewan’s natural resources industry. Indigenous people have a long history in the oil and natural gas industry, and we look forward to the continuation of that proud tradition.”
