Canadian Energy Exports: The Landscape, the Challenges, and the Driving Forces Behind the Need for Market Access
Canadian law places few restrictions on oil and gas exports; however, hurdles to the construction of required export infrastructure present challenges to sustaining historical levels of exports. This chapter discusses the legal context for Canada's energy exports, and the landscape for new energy exports from Canada, with a focus on recent legislative and regulatory developments related to new export pipelines, rail transport of crude oil, and the nascent liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry on Canada's Pacific coast.
