It's December 11, 2016, and It's been a while since you've seen a new post here and that's for good reason. The Oil and Gas industry in Canada is changing, and not necessarily for the better. Kinder Morgan has received permission to twin the line between Edmonton and Vancouver, effectively triplng capacity to the coast, but if we look to our largest trading partner, and closest friend in E & P production to the south, you'll see that Keystone will be killed before long. The three candidates for Energy minister in the US, under the Trump administration, are Oil Company owners so don't think for second that in light of the recent stats for the West Texas field evaluations that permission will be given to plumb a pipeline right to the competition. It's simple logic.
We need an Energy policy that allows for export considerations both East and West, while maintaining infrastrure to the south for when the US understands that it can't produce for it's own needs, at least in the short term.
2017 will be interesting as we have adjusted to lower pricing pre barrel.
We can only wait and see....
