Thank You

 As OSFC enters our third week of operation, we wanted to take a moment to share our excitement about the diverse group of member organizations who have lent their support to our oil sands fact-finding campaign. Our supporting organizations understand the importance of getting the facts straight on why industry, labor, business and other groups care about the responsible development of the Canadian oil sands. These organizations, listed on our About page, now include:

American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers 

American Highway Users Alliance


American Petroleum Institute


Association of Oil Pipe Lines


Associated Equipment Distributors


Associated General Contractors of Missouri


Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers


Chemical Industry Council of Illinois


Chemistry Council of Missouri


Detroit Regional Chamber


Foundry Association of Michigan


Illinois Association of Convenience Stores


Illinois Chamber of Commerce 

Illinois Petroleum Marketers Association


Illinois Manufacturers Association


Michigan Association of Convenience Stores


Michigan Manufacturers Association


Michigan Oil and Gas Association


Michigan Petroleum Association


National Association of Manufacturers


Oil & Natural Gas Industry Labor-Management Committee


Petroleum Marketers Association of America


Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council


Keeping a running list of our members is important to maintaining the credibility for which OSFC strives, but communicating the reasons why each member is involved is what will bring this campaign to life. To that end, we’ll periodically profile one of our member companies and provide our readers with a quick rundown of who they are, what they stand for, and why they care enough about the oil sands to join this coalition.

This week’s profile is on the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP):          

Who are they?: CAPP is the voice of the upstream oil and gas industry in Canada, representing companies that produce over 90 per cent of Canada’s natural gas and crude oil. They interact with governments, the public and community stakeholders to fulfill their mission of enhancing the economic sustainability of the Canadian upstream petroleum industry. CAPP is also the author of two of our favorite oil sands-related documents: THIS pipeline map and THIS brochure for an American audience.

Headquarters: Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Employment: CAPP supports a $100 billion-a-year industry that currently supports more than 500,000 jobs across Canada.

Position on the oil sands: As the representative body for oil sands producers, CAPP has a clear interest in making sure that the world knows Canada is safely and responsibly producing energy for markets around the world.

In a commentary entitled Canada – The right oil, from the right country CAPP president David Collyer clearly stated the role of the oil sands in benefitting both Canada and the U.S.:

“On its merits – security and reliability of supply, replacing declining imports from Venezuela and Mexico with a similar product (including characteristics pertaining to greenhouse gas emissions and pipeline integrity), creating thousands of jobs in both countries, and world-class Canadian environmental and social policy and regulations already in place – this is the right oil, from the right country.”
