What will it take for Canada to remain globally competitive?
This session will provide an overview of the very real (and sobering) macro-economic factors driving this "new normal" of sustained low hydrocarbon prices and challenge industry with some new targets that we'll need to achieve in order to be competitive and attract investment.  Solutions on how to get there will be presented.

"The mission actually isn't too complicated: We need to figure out how to produce a barrel of oil PROFITABLY with the assumption that we'll only get 40 bucks for that barrel".  With this cost-competitiveness mission in mind, this panel of highly experienced senior executives will explore and discuss some of the ways they believe we can get there.  They will also discuss different initiatives they and their companies are working on to help their companies and the industry as a whole become more competitive.
