The Canadian oil and gas industry is one of the most regulated and technologically advanced industries in the world.
Each year the industry safely produces, refines, transports, and distributes products from jet fuel to fertilizer while providing well-paying jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenues for all Canadians.
Yet, despite these facts, government policy and popular sentiment seem increasingly intent on marginalizing the sector and divesting from resource development.
In his presentation, Oil Respect—standing up for Canada’s oil and gas industry, Mark Scholz, president of the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors, will be defending the industry with respect to its: national and international image; economic benefits; and global environmental impact.
According to the press release, through an analysis of facts,  Scholz will advocate for the sector and provide industry supporters with a voice to make their opinions heard.
Scholz is the president of the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors and is the voice of the Canadian drilling and service rig industry, promoting safer and more efficient operations through advocacy, communications and needed products and services.
He is the official spokesperson for Oil Respect, a campaign to give regular Canadians an opportunity to stand up and demand respect for Canada’s oil and gas sector.
The event will be held at the Lloydminster Golf and Curling Centre on April 28.
Tickets are $15, lunch included.
Please RSVP to the Chamber of Commerce by April 25. Call 780-875-9013 to RSVP.
