EVENT OVERVIEW

The planned $218 billion capital investment in oil sands over the next 25 years makes this endeavour the largest industrial project in Canadian history. The next 5 years will see $6.1 billion invested in green technologies alone. These initiatives also include a public commitment of $1.3 billion toward technologies focused on renewable energy, as well as carbon capture and storage, as a means to alleviate greenhouse-gas emissions.

Quebec businesses that offer products and services designed for the energy, environment and green technologies industries benefit from seamless commercial access to the huge potential the Alberta energy market boasts.

Meet three giants of the natural gas and oil development ‒ CNRL, Suncor and TransCanada – who are looking for suppliers, and will explain how your business could take advantage of this colossal project. 

CNRL

CNRL is second largest independent natural gas producer in Canada. It holds the largest undeveloped land base in the relatively underdeveloped, natural gas-prone areas of Northeast British Columbia and Northwest Alberta. CNRL is also the largest heavy oil producer in Canada and holds a diverse portfolio of light and primary heavy oil, in situ oil sands, light synthetic upgraded oil sands mining, Pelican Lake oil, and natural gas liquids operations. The Horizon Oil Sands project can produce nearly 250,000 barrels per day of light sweet crude oil.

Suncor

Suncor is Canada’s premier integrated energy company, with operations across North America, including offshore and international assets and operations. As a trusted steward of valuable natural resources, Suncor is leading the way to delivering economic prosperity, improved social well-being and a healthy environment for today and tomorrow. Suncor spends more than $11 billion per year, over $400 million of which benefit Quebec-based companies.

TransCanada

With more than 60 years’ experience, TransCanada is a leader in the responsible development and reliable and safe operation of North American energy infrastructure.

TransCanada will discuss the tremendous opportunities that exist to participate in the proposed “Energy East” project – the conversion of part of its natural gas pipeline to oil delivery to Quebec and Eastern Canadian markets.

An overview of Alberta and the business opportunities it offers

Alongside the accelerated advancement of the petrochemical industry, oil and gas development has driven the Albertan economy to new heights. But beyond its energy market, Alberta is home to a host of business opportunities in a number of other areas.

Major construction and infrastructure projects

In June 2012, the Government of Alberta reported 874 major in-progress, planned or pending construction and infrastructure projects worth $193.5 billion combined in the province.

Strong demand for green technologies

The Albertan government, gas, petrochemical and oil sands industries are on the lookout for solutions aiming to attenuate the environmental impacts of developing these resources and to improve their usage efficiency.

$6.1 billion shall be invested over the next 5 years in green technologies alone. This is more than in all other provinces combined.

Other sectors of interest

The increased immigration of workers also drives the demand for consumer goods, education, and healthcare products and services. The province’s vigour has also attracted the headquarters of leading corporations in its cities to the benefit of the finance and professional services sectors.

The many current and upcoming projects orbit around:

  • Civil engineering;
  • Construction materials;
  • Green technologies;
  • Forestry;
  • Transport;
  • Water management and treatment;
  • Land remediation;
  • Air quality ‒ emissions reductions;
  • Monitoring, analytics, testing.

Alberta in numbers:

  • Ranked first in the Fraser Institute Economic Freedom Index.
  • One of the North American areas with the fewest obstacles to the economic activities of individuals and businesses.
  • GDP per capita: $78,000 $ – the highest in Canada (by comparison, Quebec’s per capita GDP is approximately $43,300).
  • As a result, Calgary ranks third among Canadian cities in terms of the number of headquarters (75) associated with the 500 largest Canadian businesses.
  • It is the only major Canadian city to have known an upward – instead of a downward – head office presence trend since 2000.
