CAOEC ready to work with new Liberal cabinet
The Canadian Association of Energy Contractors (CAOEC) is ready to work with the new federal cabinet appointed on October 26.
“The CAOEC looks forward to continuing to work together with the federal government and newly appointed cabinet ministers to advance Canada’s best-in-class energy industry,” says CAOEC CEO Mark Scholz.
According to a statement from the CAOEC, Canada’s energy services sector “is a willing partner in the global energy transition and is dedicated to constant innovation. The energy transition will undoubtedly be a technical challenge, but is a great economic opportunity for those who want to contribute in Canada’s role as a global energy leader.”
With the production of cleaner oil and gas, development of new and emerging alternate energy resources such as hydrogen and geothermal, and support for carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS), Canada’s resource workers and communities can have long-term success through the energy transition, states the CAOEC.
“The Canadian energy industry is ready to play a major part in producing net-zero energy for the global market. We have the tools, technology, and know-how to help meet emissions targets,” explains Scholz. “Canada can satisfy global demand for low-carbon energy if there are continued opportunities and appropriate policies put in place to support the success of our energy industry and its workers.”
