Report summary

An abundance of long-life, high-potential resources initially attracted Asian NOCs to Canada. Despite slowing M&A activity, Asian NOCs operate or are key partners in numerous high-profile projects, including LNG export, exploration and evaluation of emerging unconventional plays, and continued development of the oil sands. We expect the peer group to transition its investment from large-scale acquisitions to increased capital outlays into development programmes.
