The Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Energy, Law & Business at the University of Texas at Austin in partnership with the Energy Systems signature area at the University of Alberta, and the Energy Initiative at Tecnologico de Monterrey, present the webinar:
 

“North American Energy Policy post COVID-19: Perspectives from Canada, the United States and Mexico”


Date: Thursday, May 7th 8:30 -9:30AM (MST)

The economic and market impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak have dramatically impacted all markets and industries, including the oil and gas sector. Demand destruction combined with significant oversupply has caused price collapse and created serious shortages in storage capacity. Oil producing countries like the United States, Canada and Mexico, are being hit particularly hard. The United States is the world’s top oil producing country and, Canada and Mexico are ranked 4th and 11th, respectively.  

Our goal with this discussion is to capture a North American snapshot of key insights into the crisis and energy sector, and look ahead to the critical areas that policymakers should consider as we move from crisis to recovery. Some questions we will explore in this webinar, include:
  • What is the current situation for producers in each country?
  • How do the effects of this crisis differ between different types of resources (conventional, oil sands, shale, offshore), different firm sizes (large multinationals, medium-sized producers, small producers), and across the three countries?
  • What about the impacts on other segments of the industry (service sectors, etc.)
  • What are the different policy responses between the respective federal governments and the state or provincial levels?
