The Future of Oil: Nov 12th
Another excellent forum discussion led by one of our members, Bryan Guzak, Director of Sales Western Hemisphere at Cougar Drilling Solutions. Among many subjects, industry leaders discussed Alberta trends in technology implementation across the oil sector.
All right, so I have Bryan Guzak here from Cougar Drilling Solutions, Director of Sales, Western Hemisphere. We just had a conversation with the oil and gas industry experts on the future vision of oil and gas in Alberta. So Bryan, I’d like to hear from you, what was your takeaway from the conversation today?
Thanks, Yasmine, appreciate it. Takeaways, I mean a couple of takeaways. No surprises as far as, again, the outlook I think right now in oil and gas in Alberta is not overly optimistic, but there are some areas, I think, of hope for the future, for sure. So I had some takeaways there listening to some of the people that were on the call. Again, one of my takeaways I’m interested at the end of the call was, if nothing else, the fact that we’ve got some pretty passionate business leaders who are frustrated with the way our economy is headed in Alberta right now and are committed to doing what they can to help turn that around. You know, that’s encouraging to hear from a handful of people. So all in all, I thought the engagement was good in the conversation. I wasn’t quite sure where it would or wouldn’t head, there was some other questions maybe lined up, if that initial question fell flat. But it didn’t. We seemed to go pretty easily for the full hour. And yeah, for my part, I thought it was quite good.
That’s wonderful, Bryan. Yeah, the discussion was great. I think you guys could have talked for a lot longer than an hour, so hopefully we can get some of those next discussion topics into a talk later on. But with that, thank you so much, I appreciate your time and we’ll see you very soon. Thanks so much, Bryan.
