This paper argues that Canada and Saudi Arabia are major oil-producing countries, but oil-producing countries whose industries differ in terms of discovery, usage and production. The writer discusses that while Canada's history of formal oil production and exportation appears to be older than Saudi Arabia's, Saudi Arabia appears to have the edge on Canada in terms of annual oil production and exportation and is a slightly less rapacious consumer of oil, as well. The writer concludes that Canada is actually competitive with Saudi Arabia, though its reliance upon foreign imports is a bit of a problem relative to Saudi Arabia's complete independence.
From the Paper:"On the other hand, Canada has managed to maintain its refining capacity at almost identical to the refining capacity of Saudi Arabia's - though its refinery network appears to be showing more strain. In the end, Canada is actually competitive with Saudi Arabia, though its reliance upon foreign imports is a bit of a problem relative to Saudi Arabia's complete independence."
