Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion

Earlier this week the Trudeau government announced the approval of the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion project. This constantly delayed project has been years in the making and has been foiled many times by legal appeals and resistance from the BC government.

What this means for Canadian Oil and Gas Producers:

With the pipeline expansion Alberta will finally see a cost-effective route to the BC which will open the door to Asia, Russia and the Pacific coast. Alberta oil has been

Oil rigs have been declining for years and we’re now at a 20-year low in rig production in Canada. Given the opportunity for new demand on the west coast we should see an increase in production out of the Alberta sector.

Pricing has been heavily dependent on the US market as well as the Canadian market. Given the overall dip in cost per barrel over the past few years, the new markets in Asia and the Pacific should create a much higher profit portal for Canadian producers.

What this means for Gas pipelines in Canada:

Given the Premier’s position on Climate Change and the Liberal Government reluctance to rock the boat prior to the election, the outlook should look promising for pipeline construction. The Premier noted that this is a key step in “bridging the gap” between the low carbon future we want and the current carbon marketplace. To create the investment money in Green Technology we need “money to pay for it”.

It’s promising to see the Premier understand that our natural resource will provide Canada with the means to fund the low carbon technology we are needing as we move forward!

Should Canada Introduce More Pipelines?
Mar 5, 2019
Natural gas is nearly universally accepted as the bridge resource between emissions-heavy fossil fuels and the green-tech movement. It is the ideal commodity to do the job, especially in North America, where the introduction of new drilling techniques in the mid 2000ís allowed access to enough natural gas to power the continent for decades to come.
