Integrated Energy Analysis

Integrated Energy Analysis

In regulating oil and gas exports, the Board is required to ensure that the quantity of oil or gas to be exported “does not exceed the surplus remaining after due allowance has been made for the reasonably foreseeable requirements for use in Canada” (Section 118 of the National Energy Board Act). Also, Part II of the Act states that the Board shall study and keep under review energy matters over which Parliament has jurisdiction, and provide the Minister with such advice as the Minister may request.

The following cross-commodity analysis and publications are included:
