AiM Begins Operations in Atlantic Canada’s Energy Industry

AiM-Land-Is-Now-Open-for-Business-in-Halifax

Atlantic Canada has a thriving energy industry and it is because of this significant growth potential that we made the decision earlier this year to begin operations in Halifax.

Atlantic Canada produces more than 233,000 barrels of oil per day, representing 5% of Canada’s total crude oil production. Newfoundland and Labrador is the 3rd largest petroleum producer in Canada, making up almost 5% of Canada’s petroleum. There has been significant exploration activity in recent years and the government of Newfoundland and Labrador estimates Newfoundland and Labrador’s offshore resource potential at more than 6 Billion barrels of oil and 60 Trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

Quick Facts of Newfoundland + Labrador’s Offshore Industry

  • $5.4 billion – in industry spending on exploration and development in 2016
  • $920 million – estimated payments to the province from offshore oil production in 2017/18
  • 16% – share of total provincial revenues from oil royalties in 2018/19
  • 221,000 – barrels per day of oil produced in 2017
  • 5,000 people – directly employed (thousands more indirectly)
  • 600 supply and service companies – support the industry
  • $45 billion – cumulative expenditures in NL between 1995-2017
  • $21 billion – cumulative royalties paid to the Government of NL from 1998-2017
  • $506 million – spent on R&D and education and training in NL

Offshore exploration programs are active and there are 6 offshore projects in production including two natural gas projects in Nova Scotia and four oil projects in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Nova Scotia

Along with the offshore activity in Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia’s resource potential is also significant. The Government of Nova Scotia estimates there is a potential 120 Trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 8 Billion barrels of oil offshore.  Combined with proximity to market and existing infrastructure, the potential in Nova Scotia has been attracting investors for a number of years.There are four companies actively pursuing LNG export projects in Nova Scotia.

By leveraging abundant renewable energy, all of Canada stands to produce some of the cleanest liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the world. Our vast LNG resources could provide a competitive advantage that grows over time, as increasingly stringent emissions policies come into play in the years ahead.
