Canada-US Energy Sector Competitiveness Survey 2019

The Canada-US Energy Sector Competitiveness Survey finds that Texas is more than twice as attractive for oil and gas investment than Alberta. Specifically, uncertain environmental regulations, regulatory inconsistencies and pipeline constraints are major deterrents to greater energy investment in Alberta and across Canada. In fact, the study also ranks 20 North American jurisdictions based on policies affecting oil and gas investment, and Saskatchewan was Canada’s highest-ranked province at 13th out of 20. Alberta ranked 16th, and Texas ranked 1st overall.
