CAODC endorses Saskatchewan’s support for energy sector
The Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors is applauding the Saskatchewan government for implementing a series of relief measures for the province’s oil and gas sector.
“These support measures will help protect more than 34,000 jobs and show a commitment to the Canadian energy industry,” CAODC President and CEO, Mark A. Scholz said in a statement. “In communities across Saskatchewan, good paying oil and gas jobs play a large and important role in the local economy.”
The measures announced yesterday, in addition to the Memorandum of Agreement that the province recently signed with the CAODC, will be essential to Saskatchewan drilling and service rig companies staying solvent over the coming months.
“We thank the Saskatchewan Government for their leadership in helping oil and gas workers keep their careers in the sector while also ensuring the highest level of public safety,” says Scholz, “Given the rare combination of factors impacting our industry today, government support at all levels is needed to ensure the future of the Canadian energy industry is bright.”
