Oil & Gas

The industry generates substantial revenue, providing economic stimulus through direct investment, job creation, and contributions to government coffers in the form of taxes and royalties. Additionally, the development of oil and gas resources in BC contributes to energy security by diversifying the energy mix and reducing dependence on external sources.
