Energy and Technology
Meeting the increasing demand for energy poses many challenges: increasing efficiency, developing new supplies and safeguarding the environment. Technology will play a critical role in meeting these challenges.
Breakthrough technologies — have helped keep pace with rising global energy demand by making more energy supplies available, while also reducing the environmental footprint of energy development. Technology is more important today than ever, since a significant portion of the world’s oil and gas resources is located in challenging environments such as deepwater, heavy oil/oil sands, tight gas and Arctic regions, which require innovative approaches to energy production. We plan to utlilise a technology known as the Gas Gun instead of traditional fracking shale plays, which is safer and environmentally friendly.
Canada’s oil sands are ranked third only to Saudi Arabia and Venezuela in terms of recoverable oil reserves. We recognize there is concern among a range of stakeholders regarding the increased energy intensity and water use associated with developing oil sands.
According to Environment Canada, Canada’s oil sands industry has reduced production-related emissions by almost 30 percent per barrel, since 1990 and most of the top ECN brokers report that oil prices are heavy affected by that. We recognize there is still work to be done.
Community & Development
As we invest in communities, we pursue long-term projects with strategic goals that are aligned with global and social priorities as well as our business strengths. We seek to have a more meaningful impact by focusing the majority of our spending on significant challenges in the regions where we operate.
The appetite for oil and other energy sources is growing dramatically, with worldwide energy consumption projected to increase by 36 percent by 2035.
The growing demand is fueled by a population that is predicted to increase 25 percent in the next 20 years, with most of that growth in countries with emerging economies, such as China and India. Rising energy demand from economic output and improved standards of living will likely put added pressure on energy supplies. For example, in China alone, demand is expected to increase by 75 percent by 2035.
Meanwhile, in the Western world people are driving their cars more each year and living in bigger houses that are equipped with an increasing array of energy-demanding appliances and electronics.
At International Equity Partners, we recognize the world needs all the energy we can develop, in many potential forms. That’s why we’re investing in a broad portfolio of energy resources. We’re finding and developing conventional and new sources of oil and gas.
• We’re using energy more efficiently.
• We’re investing in renewables and the next generation of energy sources.
