Enterprise Groupe (TSX: E, OTC: ETOLF), a company specializing in equipment and services in the build-out of infrastructure for energy pipeline and construction industries, has shared solid positive earnings. These outstanding results will boost investors’ confidence, and upcoming investments in the oil and gas sector should help the company grab more market share. E.TO gained 40% YoY, a significant gain compared to S&P (-19.4%), Nasdaq (8.7%), and Dow (-9).
Oil & Gas Sector Overview
The oil and natural gas sector is active in 12 of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories. Canada is sixth in the production of natural gas and fourth in the production of crude oil worldwide.
The GDP of Canada receives billions of dollars from its oil and natural gas production, which also generates thousands of employment annually.
Large amounts of these resources are found in Alberta, Canada’s top oil and natural gas producer. Around 80% of Canada’s total oil production comes from Alberta and natural gas can be found all over the province. However the oil sands are only in the northern part of the province. Predictions say the oil and gas industry will be worth $40 billion CDN on March 1, 2023, an increase of 11% from 2022. According to a Bank of Montreal estimate, Alberta will receive $28 billion in investments this year, or almost 70% of all investments made in Canada. According to CAPP (largest investor in environmental protection), the conventional and oil sands industries are the key drivers of investment growth.
“The year 2023 may be one of the most pivotal moments in time for Canada’s oil and natural gas industry. With an emerging liquefied natural gas export industry, the expected completion of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, and billions of dollars in emissions reduction investments waiting to be unlocked, Canada is positioned to play a much larger role in providing responsibly produced energy resources to the world.”
