10:45 am Session II: The energy export challenge
Technical advances and foreign political calculations are having a significant impact on the Canadian oil and gas sectors, notably, with regards to energy export. The delay of the Keystone XL pipeline, a lengthy review process for the Northern Gateway project and declining continental gas exports that are driving the development of LNG terminals are examples of a new volatility that is affecting decision makers. Who will be the winners in this high stakes game? The panel will examine the strategies being implemented in the oil, gas and infrastructure areas in these uncertain times.

Panelists will examine the strategies that effective managers will need to deploy in this new operating environment.
