Canada is a stable, open and growing supplier of energy in a resource-constrained world, presenting significant commercial opportunities to investors. Panelists will highlight areas of growth in Canadian energy markets, including infrastructure, production and technical innovations. The session will also focus on the investments that are being made to diversify the country’s oil and gas exports – investments that are central to Canada’s quest to become an energy superpower.

11:30 pm Session II: Transatlantic energy – an investor perspective
Panelists will examine the risks – and the rewards – in the energy sector in this time of tremendous change. Oil and gas investments continue to internationalise, propelled by a global scarcity of investment opportunities. In this new energy environment, investors value assets that are in robust markets that provide regulatory certainty, access to capital, visibility and investor confidence. Panelists will provide an in depth analysis of the Canada Europe commercial relationship, highlight important developments in the energy sector, as well as the emerging market and public policy risks, including the EU Fuel Quality Directive.

Moderator: Jason Langrish, President, The Energy Roundtable
