“This turned out to be an excellent event. The speakers were all C-level and had highly relevant and interesting talk tracks. It’s absolutely the sort of event we should be taking part in. Great event for us to elevate our brand and shape the way we're viewed in the marketplace.”

Luke Guinan, NA Marketing Lead – Oil & Gas, SAP

‘I found the conference panels and speakers and most importantly, the attendee list to be excellent!’

Roger G. McMechan, Chief Executive Officer, Iskander Energy Corp

‘So excited to return for the third year in a row.  The growth in the oil council to change its name to energy and include renewables this year was exciting as it assists us professionals assess the impact of competing sources of energy.  I look forward each year to attending this event for its high profile presenters and networking with other energy professionals.  It was a full day with talks and the highlight being the presentation to Adam Waterous a leader in Calgary for acquisitions and divestitures.  Thanks to the organizers for once again providing a very worthwhile event that is relevant and current.  For those that have never attended please consider this event next year, once you attend you will benefit by all it has to offer.’

Lee Wahl, Country Manager, KUFPEC Canada Inc.

“I had the pleasure of taking part in the Canada Assembly 2016 as a Recipient of the prestigious Oil & Gas Council Lifetime Achievement Award. I was pleasantly surprised with a turnout considering tough market conditions and the level of both discussions and the audience. I felt that it was one of the best organized events recently held in Canada that showed the strength and agility of our industry. I sincerely look forward to next year.”

Jim Davidson, Executive Chairman, FirstEnergy Capital Corp.

"I know Jim and I truly appreciate the efforts of the Oil and Gas Council to both recognize our efforts in building our business (FirstEnergy) and all of the communities we are associated with over the past 2 decades. It was a moving evening - starting with the incredible turnout of our clients and staff and competitor “alumni” to the very well composed and edited videos. All very much appreciated."

Brett Wilson, Chairman, Prairie Merchant

Excellent event! Definitively one of the best ones I’ve been to in a while. The panel, the insight and the overall turnout was fantastic, which made it for great networking opportunities with very smart people. I particularly liked Samer’s ideas from Pacific Future Energy – he was a creative thinker and it was interesting to see his approach to problem solving when it comes to environmental issues."

Artour Khouzine, Investment Analyst, Trivest Wealth Counsel

"Thank you very much for including me in the Canada Assembly event. It was a great event, bringing together executives from leading Canadian companies and financing sources. The panels offered significant insight into how the industry in Canada is adapting, surviving and even thriving despite current commodity prices. Please keep me in mind for future events and panels.”

Rob Johnson, Managing Director, EIG Partners

Peter Tertzakian, Chief Energy Economist and Managing Director, ARC Financial Corp.

“Congratulations to the Oil and Gas Council on presenting a valuable format for companies to describe what they are doing to capture opportunities and meet the challenges of the ever-changing business world. The Canada Assembly panel format explored the vital issues and questions on the minds of investors and producers. Well done.”

Pat Carlson, CEO, Seven Generations Energy Ltd. 

"This is the second Canada Assembly I have attended in addition to the one last October in Houston, TX. The Oil Council Assembly is a great place to listen to open dialog with local industry veterans and visionaries.  I found the topics to be relevant to current local and global challenges and opportunities and believe it is a worthwhile investment of time to attend the conference."

Jason Demers, President & CEO, Delfan Energy Resources Corp.

“Thank you for a great conference and for meeting me earlier to the conference. I was overwhelmed how many attended the dinner…I was impressed with the conference, great talent was selected to speak and some interesting panels put together”.

Lee Wahl, Country Manager, KUFPEC

"This is the first Oil & Gas Council event that I've attended and I was impressed with the quality of the speakers and found that the "panel discussion" approach worked very well; this allowed the panelists the opportunity to share their opinions and experiences in a quite effective way. This also provided an impetus to interactive discussions with members of the audience. I learned a lot and also enjoyed the opportunity to exchange with other attendees during the breaks and at the banquet."

Peter Dorrins, CEO, Junex

“The Oil & Gas Council Conference was filled with top quality speakers providing informative insights into all aspects of the business and the Conference was an excellent opportunity to network with key industry contacts.”

Brock Young, Senior Vice President, Land, Sinopec Canada

"The Oil & Gas Council panel session was very worthwhile. I really liked the free-flow Q&A format where frankness and banter between panelists was encouraged. I believe it helps get the important points across yet keeps the session enjoyable and particularly interesting for attendees and panelists alike. The attendees were from a very senior and diverse background, which allows access to quite a different demographic than most investor conferences I attend. Congratulations, Oil & Gas Council."

Jonathan Wright, CEO, NuVista Energy Ltd.

 “Oil & Gas Council regional events, such as the Calgary conference, offer an excellent snapshot of what is going on in a particular region at a particular time, the driving forces behind those developments and how industry is adapting to relevant challenges. The quality of speakers, panelists and the entire event is first rate.”

Craig Spurn, McCarthy Tetrault

"The Canada Assembly was very well organized and informative.  I was particularly impressed by the efforts of the Oil & Gas Council people on the ground to introduce attendees to each other."

Donald E Greenfield, Partner, Head of Oil and Gas, Bennett Jones LLP

 “This was my second opportunity to present at a Calgary Oil & Gas Council event and I have found them to be consistently high quality; good topics, interesting panelists and a diverse group of attendees. I think these events would appeal to people with a relatively wide range of interests in industry, including those focused on acquisition opportunities in Western Canada."

Ian Dundas, CEO, Enerplus

“The Oil & Gas Council put together a strong program that brought together the right people for a timely dialogue on the key issues and opportunities for our industry.”

Dave Collyer, President, CAPP

“This was my first Oil & Gas Council event and I was thrilled with the format and the higher level dialogue from the event. It exceeded my expectations as it was relevant to the current issues in finance. I enjoyed the free flow panel format rather than the more typical long slide presentation format. I also found it was a great place to spend some time networking with peers.”

Corey Code, VP Strategy and Treasurer, EnCana

“The Oil & Gas Council’s 2014 Calgary conference was a very good event in in terms of the quality of the audience, speakers, and the discussions onstage and off. Attendance is highly recommended for anyone involved in Canada’s O&G sector.”

Bob Sutton, Senior Client Partner, Korn/Ferry International

“We are a new start-up E&P company and in early stages of raising capital. The Oil & Gas Council Conference linked us with over twenty serious local, national, and international funding sources that we are now following up on. This unique conference connected us with new contacts that would have taken years to find, I highly recommend that companies new and old discover the Oil & Gas Council advantage.”

Tom West, CEO, Imola O&G

“This was our first time in the role of sponsor of an Oil & Gas Council event in Canada. We agreed to participate this year as part of our strategy of becoming more visible in the Western Canadian oil and gas market; we certainly accomplished that. I found the level of knowledge of the speakers and delegates to be first rate, we will definitely be sponsoring again next year. A highlight of this event for me was the opportunity to interact with key customers on a strategic level as partners, moving past the traditional supplier role."

Jeremy Dawson, VP of Oil and Gas, Siemens

“My calendar is often congested with commitments, but I always accommodate Oil & Gas Council functions. They always have high quality speakers, but equally high quality attendees.  I learn from all of them.”

Peter Tertzakian, Chief Energy Economist and Managing Director, ARC Financial Corp.

“As a sponsor and session Chair we were able to see firsthand the benefits of partnering with this best in class worldwide energy organization. Their attention to detail and ability to host sessions that were very topical and relevant to matters of the day were of paramount benefit to ourselves and the rest of the participants. Oil & Gas Council is growing in size and reputation. A great place to network and stay relevant on energy topics that affect all of this in this very important industry."

Bruce Edgelow, Head of Energy Group, ATB Financial

"For anyone looking to understand what is happening in the oil and gas sector at any moment of time, the Oil & Gas Council offers a terrific conference with an excellent line up of speakers who are at the top of the game."
