QUEBEC, Oct. 9, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Oil and Gas Association of
Quebec (QOGA) welcomes the announcement yesterday by the Government in
regards to hydrocarbon development. In particular, the goal of greater
energy independence without losing respect for the environment.
Hydrocarbon imports supply the majority of Quebec's energy needs. The
annual bill for hydrocarbon imports is equal to the budget for
education for the entire province of Quebec. The Government has
recognized that importing hydrocarbons means exporting money, exporting
high quality jobs and exporting control over the environmental impacts.
The solution is in a better balanced energy diet and greater energy
independence. The Association is excited to cooperate and support the
Government's goals in these areas.
"As we approach the 5th Annual QOGA Conference, we are pleased to note
that these statements echo the various topics that will be addressed at
our event. The conference is a must attend event for anyone who wishes
to learn about the projects being discussed by the Government. QOGA
believes it is important to understand both the discovered and the
undiscovered hydrocarbon potential of the province. We will also have
experts speaking on the Norwegian and Alberta Government royalty
models. In addition experts will talk about the new technologies that
improve protection for the environment. Quebecers need this information
so they can make an informed decision over their energy future" said
the President of QOGA, Michael Binnion
The Quebec Oil and Gas Association believes that future exploitation of
hydrocarbons in Quebec will be important to economic development,
create more jobs and provide stability in Quebec energy supply. QOGA
was created to encourage dialogue about the potential of a new oil and
gas industry in Quebec.
The Association will hold its 5th Annual Conference on October 27th and
28th at the Sheraton Montreal Centre. For more information, please
