Begun in 2011 as an internal research tool for the development of the Extractive Resource Governance Program, this project seeks to answer the vital question: Where in the world are Canadian oil and gas companies? To answer this question, we extract firm-level information for publicly traded Canadian companies in order to establish the location of their activities around the globe.

The data collected in the “Where in the World” (hereafter WIW) project are presented through a publicly accessible interactive world map, which allows users to explore a specific country or region over time.

This report, as in the earlier reports in this series, provides an account of emerging trends and highlights variations in the level of global activities of Canadian oil and gas companies (hereafter O&G) for the 2013 year of study.

In 2013, a total of 226 Canadian O&G companies engaged in global exploration and service activities in 99 countries worldwide. The Middle East and Europe experienced the greatest increase in the concentration of Canadian exploration and production (E&P) companies. Meanwhile, the international presence of Canadian O&G service companies continued to grow in several countries, including Colombia, Mexico, and the United Kingdom.

This report begins with a regional overview of the international presence of Canadian E&P companies, followed by a summary of country-level activities. The report then continues by providing the same analysis for Canadian O&G service companies

Keywords: oil, gas, extractive resource governence, oil and gas companies
