Jessica Sinclair came out to our Technical Session April, 20th to present the facts on oil and gas not only in Alberta but in Canada and around the world.
"It's about people. It's about jobs. It's about the economy. It's about the facts. The Oil Respect Campaign aims to EDUCATE, RESPECT, RALLY and STAND-UP for the Canadian oil and gas industry."
The campaign was started in February 2016 and launched by the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors (CAODC). The campaign is meant to motivate Canadians to voice support for the Canadian oil and gas industry. "Oil Respect is about respect for the facts, respect for workers, respect for the environment, and respect for an industry that has done so much to provide Canadians with jobs, funding for government services, and a higher standard of living," explains CAODC President Mark Scholz.
With such a dramatic change in the industry over the past few years this campaign is focused on bringing people together and urging them to speak up and bring awareness to our highly responsible and technically advanced oil and gas production systems. There has been an influx in politically positioned arguments that publicize the industry in Canada as a large contributor to green house gas emissions, poor environmental regulations and disrespect for surrounding communities and the reality is the complete opposite.
As women in the industry who support energy, oil and gas production and pipeline and development this is a topic that we can relate to and are proud to support the campaign.
