Report summary

2017 was a year of significant change in the Canadian oilpatch. The Canadianisation of the oil sands dominated the first half of the year, with the latter part of the year focussing on the Montney and the Duvernay. What do we expect for 2018? New greenfield oil sands projects receive FID, more pipeline uncertainty, and potential Montney consolidation. We also predict corporate budgets to remain relatively flat, with share buybacks on the table for larger producers and smaller producers challenged to maintain growth within cash flow.
