CAPP projects $40B in capex this year – almost double 2020, but half of 2014

While $40 billion is an improvement, it’s a far cry from the roughly $80 billion spent in the boom year of 2014. Asked about that, Elizabeth Besson, manager, media and issues for CAPP, Besson told Pipeline Online, “Coming off nearly a decade of historically low commodity prices, it is positive to see a third consecutive year of growth and to reach that milestone of surpassing pre-COVID investment, particularly at a time when the Canadian economy is in need of private investment.”
