    The World Needs More Canada

    We are not talking about hockey players or maple syrup, but Canada’s other treasure: oil and gas production.

    Canada is the most regulated, transparent, monitored, socially progressive and democratic nation among the world’s top 10 oil exporters. This rigid scrutiny makes Canada’s oil and natural gas amongst the best in the world. Unlike many other countries in the top 10, Canada takes extreme pride in producing ethical and environmentally clean energy for the world.

    AiM Land Oil Production

    Let’s take a look at top 10 oil producing countries that is competing for this vital resource that runs the world economies. Canada ranks 4th as the largest producer of oil, with most coming from Alberta.  Not only is production key, but how long can a country sustain the product is critical for long term sustainment.  Well, Canada has the 3rd largest reserves.  For oil, overall Canada ranks in the top 5 in both categories.

    Top 10 oil production countries (million barrels per day, 2022).

    1. United States – 11.5
    2. Russia – 10.5
