Conference 2014

Quebec Oil and Gas Association (QOGA) will hold its 6th annual conference at the Fairmont Reine Elizabeth, in Montreal, on November 2nd and 3rd of 2014. This meeting has become a must-attend for all those who work in the burgeoning oil and gas industry in the province. Following recent announcements by the Government of Quebec in its June 4th budget, our conference theme this year is “Horizon 2016”.

The budget put forward the Fonds Capital Mines Hydrocarbures which has a one billion dollar budget. Under the aegis of Ressources Québec, a subsidiary of Investissement Québec, this fund will allow the government to get directly involved in oil and gas by taking participation in businesses. This will allow Quebecers take an active part in the profits from their resources.

The Government also announced the launch of a strategic environmental evaluation for the oil and gas industry as a whole, but more specifically for Anticosti Island. Over two years, 6,5 million dollars will be spent on this evaluation. The government want to elaborate a complete Bill in 2015 that would encompass the whole hydrocarbon file. This Bill would bring to date the legislative framework as oil and gas are concerned.

Following those announcements, we easily understand why we need to get ready for 2016. Our November conference will consequently put forward all matters that we need to manage in regard to this new interest in oil and gas both from the public and from the government. Of course, we will bring together major players of our industry as well as top notch speakers. Once again, this will be a great networking opportunity for everyone involved in our great industry.
