2016 Event

Following 2015's highly successful event, the Conference Board returned to Calgary to tackle the tough question: What does the future of the Canadian oil and gas industry look like, given relatively low prices and other factors, such as environmental and social concerns about the industry?

The Oil and Gas Summit 2016: What's Next? brought together respected national and international oil and gas experts to discuss if low oil and natural gas prices are going to continue, for how long, and what the impact will be on business.

The experts discussed developments worldwide, and their impact on the Canadian oil and gas industry in the months and years ahead, including:

  • Oil market fundamentals, including the short to medium-term outlook for oil prices
  • Major geopolitical events’ potential impact on oil and natural gas prices, including the New Cold War and political instability in the Middle East and elsewhere
  • Natural gas market fundamentals and short to medium-term price trajectories
  • Panel discussion on the future of the Canadian oil and gas industry
