Jackie Forrest, Peter Tertzakian | ARC ENERGY IDEAS
This year has been a difficult one for Canada’s oil and gas
workers, capital spending is down and there are concerns about next year
too. In this episode we follow the
Fiscal Pulse of the industry, to understand how money is made and spent, and to
diagnose the reasons for less capital investment.
In this episode we reference three charts – the ARC Fiscal
Pulse, shareholder dividends and buybacks, and the historical drilling rates –
see these charts in our ARC commentary “The
Fiscal Pulse of Canada’s Upstream Oil and Gas Industry.”
We also reference our weekly ARC Energy Charts publication
that includes historical fiscal metrics for Canada’s oil and gas industry, see
page nine of the October
28, 2019 ARC Energy Charts.
