Alberta has an opportunity to become one of the most attractive places in the world for oil and natural gas investment, but only if there are strong policies aimed at enhancing industry’s competitiveness. The success of the province is largely tied to a strong oil and natural gas industry and getting industry back on track means moving Alberta toward a more prosperous future.
CAPP’s CEO, Tim McMillan, will highlight the challenges facing Alberta’s oil and natural gas industry, as well as solutions-based recommendations. CAPP’s recommendations focus on a strong growth scenario for the oil and natural gas industry in Alberta, increasing its competitiveness in the global energy market and attracting investment back to the province. A healthy oil and natural gas industry benefits all Albertans and is the backbone of our economy.
About Tim McMillan
Tim McMillan, President and CEO
Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers
Tim McMillan was appointed President and incoming CEO of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) on October 1, 2014. The Saskatchewan native is responsible for leading activities in education and communications as well as policy and regulatory advocacy on behalf of CAPP member companies, which represent over 80 per cent of Canada’s upstream oil and natural gas production.
Tim grew up on a family farm near Lloydminster, where the McMillan family first homesteaded more than a century ago. After earning an economics degree from the University of Victoria, he traveled and worked overseas as an Information Technology professional. He later returned to the family farm and founded and operated an oilfield services company. His solid understanding of the oil and natural gas industry from both a business and landowner perspective, coupled with his background in economics, propelled his desire to seek a seat within the Saskatchewan Legislature.
In 2007, Tim was elected as a Saskatchewan Party MLA in the riding of Lloydminster. From 2010 until his appointment as President and CEO of CAPP, Tim held several strategic cabinet portfolios in the Government of Saskatchewan, including minister of energy and resources and minister of rural health.
Tim lives in Calgary with his wife and their two daughters.
