Minister Guthrie will attend the Oslo Energy Forum in Norway from Feb. 14-16. This year’s conference focuses on the future of the energy sector and addressing energy security, sustainability and affordability. During the conference the minister will participate in a panel to discuss solutions for hard-to-abate sectors, highlighting Alberta’s global leadership in carbon capture utilization and storage.

Following Oslo, Minister Guthrie will travel to Germany to promote Alberta natural gas products – including clean hydrogen and LNG – as the best options for energy security and meeting Germany’s long-term energy needs.

“Alberta is the best solution to the global energy crisis. We are strengthening relationships with international partners while promoting our energy sector as the affordable, reliable and responsible supplier. The world needs more Alberta energy – not less.”

Pete Guthrie, Minister of Energy

As part of the mission, the minister will meet with government officials and industry representatives to build political and economic relationships that will help drive future growth and investment.

Minister Guthrie will be accompanied by his chief of staff and one representative from the Department of Energy. Mission expenses will be posted on the travel and expense disclosure page.

Alberta’s government is committed to working with its national and international partners to advance shared interests that can lead to new opportunities for people and businesses in Alberta and around the world.
