Canada’s crude oil production by province

Canada is the world’s sixth largest oil producers with petroleum production being the main industry in the country’s economy for more than a century. Canada exports crude oil and natural gas all over the world with the United States remaining the biggest importer of Canadian oil products.

The country is divided into 13 regions, or provinces, and 12 of them produce either crude oil or natural gas. According to Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP), the biggest oil producers in the country are the provinces of Alberta, Newfoundland and Labrador and Saskatchewan. The average oil production from January to August 2016 in the above mentioned regions was 331.5, 188.6 and 175.2 barrels per day respectively, as shows the official data from National Energy Board.

The three provinces produce most crude oil in the country while other regions are mostly focused on natural gas production which is also highly important for the country’s economy. Alberta, as well as Saskatchewan, British Columbia and Manitoba produce oil from the rich Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. Newfoundland and Labrador produces crude from offshore drilling.
