PRESIDENT AND CEO’S MESSAGE

STRIVING TO BE THE BEST

ADVOCACY ORGANIZATION IN CANADA

Welcome to our first issue of Context in 2016. The focus of this edition is reporting out what CAPP accomplished in 2015, and the goals and priorities you, through our member-appointed board of governors, have identified for us for the year ahead.

potential hearing costs. Continued modernization of regulations and streamlining of regulatory processes via the Alberta Energy Regulator’s Near Term Action Program (NTAP) have already achieved $400 million in cost savings for industry, with more to come.

While 2015 was certainly a challenging year for all of us in Canada’s natural gas and oil industry, there were bright spots. The successful reversal of Enbridge Line 9, allowing Western Canadian oil to be delivered to refineries in Montreal, was one step toward helping Ontario and Quebec be less reliant on imported oil and help keep more jobs in Canada. A major toll settlement CAPP negotiated on behalf of shippers for the Trans Mountain pipeline provides shippers cost certainty while saving several hundred thousand dollars in

We also provided comprehensive submissions in response to both the Alberta government’s royalty and climate change reviews.

Since our submissions, the government has released details on its climate leadership plan and updated royalty regime. There are positive elements in each, suggesting that the concerns expressed by CAPP and members through our submissions and other feedback, were heard. Yet, it is likewise clear that as the government moves forward towards policy implementation in the year ahead, CAPP C APP.C A /CONTE X T


PRESIDENT AND CEO’S MESSAGE

CAPP’s Three Audiences 1. The public 2. Government and regulatory agencies 3. Industry

and members will need to continue to consult vigorously, working to ensure the detailed policies are effective and efficient—that they avoid harm to and, where possible, enhance industry’s ability to compete and grow. The milestones I’ve highlighted are just a few examples of the value creation CAPP brings to its members. On that note, I’d like to take a moment to reflect more generally on what CAPP does, and why we’re able to achieve value for our membership. When I joined CAPP just over a year ago, it was mentioned to me a few times that at CAPP, “we strive to be the best advocacy organization in Canada.” It’s a key aspiration—and one that I’ve come to recognize in my time here as being absolutely sincere. But what does it mean to be Canada’s best advocacy organization? Who is it that we advocate to, and why? We have three primary, absolutely vital audiences at CAPP. The first is the public. It is essential that as an industry, we understand and take into account the views, values and interests of Canadians. Aligning ourselves to what matters most to Canadians helps ensure we have support for our operations near and within communities, as well as for market access infrastructure initiatives like pipelines and shipping terminals.

We’ve built the necessary relationships, developed leading expertise and initiated the right strategies to advance our industry’s interests. Through strong market research and ongoing communications initiatives highlighting industry benefits, such as jobs, economic growth and world-class environmental, health and safety standards, CAPP has moved the needle of public opinion to the extent that industry supporters outnumber opponents by two to one. Now, we are at the vital stage of developing outreach and grassroots campaigns. Through the Canada’s Energy Citizens program, we are identifying, informing and involving industry supporters in key markets and on key issues—ensuring we have the kind of visible public support needed to engage and influence public policy. Our second audience are government and regulatory agencies. CAPP engages early and often to build strong relationships at all levels of C APP.C A /CONTE X T

government, the bureaucracy and regulatory agencies. With input from members, CAPP advances policy and regulatory positions that seek to enhance competitiveness, develop new markets and position our industry for success. While governments and agencies possess their own policy agendas, most recognize that their decisions are better informed when they consult with experts in impacted industries. By working collaboratively and taking a strong science-based and solutions-oriented approach, CAPP has made itself a trusted resource to governments at all levels and of all political stripes. This in turn helps us drive for policies that maintain industry competitiveness, and that enable a more streamlined and risk-based approach to regulatory oversight and enforcement. Finally, our third audience is industry. By building consensus within the upstream industry, we are able to be a strong negotiating partner within a broader economic and stakeholder context. We can, for example, advocate for member interests effectively at things like pipeline hearings and toll negotiations, regulatory reviews and policy forums. We are also able to provide valuable resources to members in the form of industry research, reports and presentations, and to promote industry-wide performance improvement through the development and dissemination of health, safety and environmental best practices. As well, we can help attract investment opportunities through events like our annual investment symposium. At CAPP, we know our three audiences—the public, government/ regulatory agencies and industry—very well. We’ve built the necessary relationships, developed leading expertise and initiated the right strategies to advance our industry’s interests. We also continually work to refine our approaches, adapting to a complex and ever-changing external context. This quality of adaptation, I believe, is the foundation that allows us to be Canada’s best advocacy organization. Equally important is that we never forget who we do this for: you, our members. While your companies operate in different parts of the country, and consist of varying sizes, and resource types and methods of production, the trust you place in us to speak with a unified voice is greatly empowering. It allows us to speak on your behalf to our three audiences with consistency, credibility and persuasion. As we head into 2016, I speak for all CAPP staff in saying that it is a privilege and a responsibility to work on your behalf. We thank you all for your trust in helping us continually build a strong, resilient and competitive Canadian natural gas and oil industry. I encourage you to read this and subsequent issues of Context to stay up to date on how we are creating value for your organization throughout this year and beyond. Sincerely, Tim McMillan

Q&A:

“Now is the time for industry and government to work together on solutions to make Alberta a worldclass province to do business.”

ALBERTA’S ROYALTY REVIEW REPORT

Context chats with CAPP president and CEO Tim McMillan about the Alberta government’s new royalty regime and what it means for upstream producers in the province. Q: What’s your perspective on the Alberta Royalty Review Report that came out on January 29, 2016? TM: We feel that it is a balanced report guided by a set of lasting principles. Most importantly, the report helps restore certainty and predictability needed to attract investment to create more jobs and value to Albertans. It’s a foundation that allows us to move forward. We also appreciate that the review was conducted in a timely manner that was open to input from all Albertans, including our industry. I think it followed a fair, credible process which confirms that Albertans do already get their “fair share” of benefit from the province’s oil and natural gas resources. The 200-page report covers a lot of ground, and there are important details that remain to be defined as the government shifts toward policy implementation. We are reviewing the report thoroughly to assess its full impact on our industry and provide input where needed. One thing we’ll be looking closely at is the mandate to increase public disclosure of oil sands project costs. It will be important for this to be implemented in a manner that avoids unintended consequences, such as putting Alberta projects at a competitive disadvantage relative to other jurisdictions. We are also looking forward to getting more details on proposed value-added programs for the natural gas and oil sands sectors. I think we can provide input to ensure these programs are successful at creating jobs and enhancing industry competitiveness. Q: Did the government listen to industry’s concerns? Are these concerns reflected in the new regime? TM: As an industry, we made a strong case for a royalty framework that is stable, predictable and competitive. I think that decisions like maintaining the existing oil sands regime and the fact that the new rules will only apply to projects starting in 2017, are positive signals that the government understands and is serious about encouraging investment in Alberta at this difficult time. That said, I think this report sets the stage for more work between industry and government to ensure Alberta’s oil and gas sector is competitive in North America. Royalties are just one part of the competitiveness equation. Given today’s economic situation, now is the time for industry and government to work together on solutions to make Alberta a world-class province to do business. C APP.C A /CONTE X T

Q: W  hat are the next steps? TM: Over the next 60 days, till March 31st, there will be a calibration period where the government will finalize details of the framework. We will be engaging government to understand further the implementation phase and provide feedback as needed. Also, we’ll be approaching the government on developing a broad competitiveness strategy. This strategy should examine the province’s cost structure in light of current and future policies, and look at what can be done by government and industry on key matters such as market access, regulatory timeliness, First Nations engagement, promoting technological innovation and so on. Q: Anything members can or should be doing? TM: Member volunteers on our executive policy groups and working committees continue to provide essential expertise in analyzing and understanding the new royalty regime and providing solutionsoriented recommendations as needed, with a focus on enhancing industry competitiveness. As well, given our broader focus on working with the government on competitiveness issues, members can definitely help. Through their communications with friends, colleagues and government, as well as by joining our Canada’s Energy Citizens campaign [www.energycitizens.ca], they can add their voices to ensure the government understands how important this industry is to Albertans, and that there’s still work to be done to ensure this industry continues to provide jobs and economic benefits for all Albertans over the long-term.

Alberta’s New Royalty Regime: Key Facts

• No changes to the oil sands royalty regime; • New royalty rates for non-oil sands wells will only apply on new wells starting in 2017 and beyond. Existing wells will have current royalty rates grandfathered for 10 years; • A simpler and more standardized royalty framework applies to both oil and natural gas: This framework includes a flat royalty rate of five per cent until a project’s costs are recovered; Royalty calculations based on revenue minus costs will replace calculations based on commodity price.
