CAPP regularly publishes a number of reports related to Canada’s oil and natural gas industry.


Crude Oil Forecast

CAPP releases its Crude Oil Forecast, Markets and Transportation report annually in late spring. The report provides a long-term outlook for Canadian crude oil production, including production and supply, markets, transportation and more.

Due to the rapidly changing capital budgets of Canadian oil producers, the resource production associated with that investment, and the current market and economic uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, the 2020 CAPP Crude Oil Forecast has been deferred. As countries set on the path of reopening and rebuilding their economies and people around the world restart their lives, we will watch for the impact on global oil demand as we continue to monitor the plans for Canadian producers. CAPP’s 2019 Crude Oil Forecast remains the most recent information on expected Canadian oil production.

Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) Report Series

Continuous Improvement

With increased interest regarding environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance in the natural gas and oil sector, CAPP has developed a series of reports that highlight industry progress in each of these categories including emissions reduction, Indigenous engagement, diversity and inclusion, reclamation and biodiversity. Good governance drives strong environmental and social practice. Canada and Canadian companies consistently rank among the highest in international ESG scores, demonstrating awareness and management of material business risks and priorities for organizations.

Indigenous Engagement and ESG Report

This report highlights many examples of how Indigenous peoples and the upstream oil and natural gas sector are finding new ways to work together, growing resource development in a sustainable and mutually beneficial manner.

This is the most comprehensive review ever completed documenting the extent of engagement between Canada’s oil and natural gas producers and Indigenous communities including consultation, workforce, community programs and investment, and Indigenous investment and participation in resource projects.
