Session I: CEO panel – Canada’s role in an energy-constrained world
Canada is an open, stable and growing supplier of energy in a resource-constrained world, presenting significant commercial opportunities for domestic and foreign investors. Whether it’s building out increasingly complex oil and gas projects or innovations such as carbon capture and storage or securing new markets, energy corporations will be central to achieving real change. The panel will include a pre-production pure play oil sands company, a diversified medium-sized oil and gas company and a rapidly growing conventional oil and gas producer, whose CEOs will discuss the evolution of the Canadian market and Canada’s place in the global energy mix.

Session II: The energy outlook
Panelists will examine the risks – and the rewards – facing the energy industry in this time of tremendous technological, economic and geopolitical change. Recent events have highlighted the risks to energy supplies, while an increasing share of conventional energy lies in the hands of national oil companies. Liberalized energy markets must provide investor certainty in this new energy environment. The panel will address how Canada and Europe can ensure robust domestic and export markets and deliver vibrant equity markets that provide access to capital, visibility and generate investor confidence.

Which energy sources and technological innovations will win as companies strive to generate returns and address increasingly stringent environment restrictions and social concerns?
