January 18, 2019

The Grande Prairie Petroleum Association started off the 2019 year with its General Meeting on January 17th .

With 87 members and guests attending the meeting, the room was close to capacity.

Attending were also representation from various producers in the area as was well as some from Calgary.

Also a good representation from the Desk & Derrick Club.

This was Registration night for returning members as well as new members were welcomed to the association.

The New executive was introduced and dates for various events were announced and are on the website calendar.

Guest Speaker was Chris Montgomery from Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

The presentation had a positive but cautious outlook for the coming year as well as to come, of course front and center were the looming issues of pipeline capacity and government issues which have been top of the list in conversations in the industry.

The question period was quite lively and a lot of passion displayed in the room.

We would like thank Chris for coming up here and spending the evening with us.

Next meeting for the GPPA will be February 21st.

Hope to see you all there.
