This is a news compilation setting the record straight on the day’s top stories about the oil and gas industry.
Anti-oil and gas Climate Action Coalition upset that Memorial University president supports Newfoundland offshore oil and gas industry.
- The offshore industry overwhelmingly supports the province bringing in over 25% of its GDP. Supporting jobs, and taxes and royalty payments that support institutions like Memorial.
- Newfoundland’s offshore industry, like the rest of Canada’s oil and gas production fit heavily into Canada’s emissions reduction plan by implementing high tech innovation to monitor and reduce.
Here are some stories that get it right, or mostly right.
Newfoundland’s offshore oil and gas industry has the potential to provide jobs, training and education to a whole new set of engineers and other bright minds. While Canada and the rest of the world deal with COVID and also the fight to reduce emissions, the industry provides an avenue to both. Without the oil and gas industry, there wouldn’t be technology like carbon capture and other technology to reduce emissions. It’s clear that the oil and gas industry needs to be supported and it’s time the federal government recognize that.
