Canada and Mexico in World Energy Markets: Strategies for Mitigating Uncertainty

June 13,2017
3:00 PM - 4:30 PM 
Arabian Room
BMO Centre, Calgary AB 

Recent global energy market price instability has had a significant impact on the economies of Canada and Mexico, both of which are heavily reliant on hydrocarbons for GDP growth. Prospects for price recovery are uncertain in a world of over-supply, in which climate change policy commitments will have a profound impact on the economics of hydrocarbon production. In addition, geo-political developments in the Middle East and elsewhere cast doubt over any predictions of global oil supply trends. Given these turbulent times, how can Canada and Mexico best position themselves in world energy markets to maximize the benefit of their oil and gas resources for their people?
