Liepert to promote Alberta’s responsible energy sector in U.S.
Edmonton… Energy Minister Ron Liepert will continue to promote Alberta as a leading source of secure energy in New York September 6 to 8.
“Maintaining a strong relationship with the United States and its investment community is important as it is both our neighbour and our best customer. Friday’s State Department release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) about the proposed expansion of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline which will carry both Canadian and American crude oil to Texas for refining, is an indication that our friendship and business affiliation with the U.S. will continue to thrive,” Liepert said.
Liepert is a keynote speaker at Barclays Capital Energy dinner and will address both Canadian and U.S. energy portfolio managers and analysts. He will also meet with other major investment houses.
The estimated cost of the trip including meals, travel and accommodation for Liepert is approximately $3,000.
The Alberta government is working to build a better Alberta by fostering economic growth, strengthening our health and education systems, investing in infrastructure, supporting safe and strong communities and ensuring a clean and healthy environment.
