AMI Practice Director Discusses Top LatAm
Energy Trends in Energy Advisor
Recently, Dr. Remi Piet—Senior Director of the natural resources and infrastructure practice for Americas Market Intelligence—was interviewed in Energy Advisor, a publication from the Inter-American Dialogue, a leading think-tank focused on Latin America.
Remi was interviewed about the evolution of energy production in oil sands projects in Alberta and the biggest trends shaping the energy industry in the Americas. Remi made the case that recent positive results from Cenovus and Canadian Natural Resources should be put in perspective and that Canadian companies should not see the forest for the trees. His response included the following observation: “Recent discoveries in Mexico, Guyana, Suriname and Colombia represent key opportunities for an industry in need of diversification. Local political and economic risks need to be acknowledged, but can be easily mitigated. It is high time for the Canadian oil sands companies to export their know-how and bank on their technological expertise by developing the sources of their future growth as the return from the Canadian oil sands will continue dwindling.”
His full comments can be found on page 6 of the issue, attached here.
