DENVER, Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- EnerCom's Oil & Gas 360® reports that the Canada oil and gas provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba placed among the top jurisdictions in the world for oil and gas investment, according to an independent annual survey.
Alberta remains the most attractive province for oil and gas investment in Canada, according to the Fraser Institute's (an independent Canadian public policy research and educational organization) annual Global Petroleum Survey of oil and gas executives. "Alberta's wealth of petroleum reserves continues to attract investment, which creates jobs for scores of Canadians," said Kenneth Green, senior director of the Fraser Institute's Center for Natural Resources, in a press release.
Alberta ranked second in the world behind Texas among jurisdictions with large oil and gas reserves. And of the 69 global jurisdictions with small proven oil and gas reserves, Saskatchewan and Manitoba ranked number two and three, respectively.
