Canadian producers and pipeline operators continue to face serious business challenges in terms of regulatory uncertainty, anti-fossil fuel environmentalists, geographical divisiveness that pits producing vs. non-producing provinces and a Liberal-controlled federal government that is ambivalent, at best, toward an industry that provides thousands of well-paying jobs and contributes mightily to government coffers.
Amid this difficult business climate is the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA), which represents the interests of the nation’s oil and gas transmission pipelines serving Canada and the U.S. Led by its energetic president and CEO, Chris Bloomer, CEPA and the industry are not ready to throw in the towel, not today, not tomorrow, maybe not ever. Why? Credit their unbending faith in the products they make every effort to deliver in a safe, efficient manner.
