What better way to end the series “Living Without Oil” than to hear from an Albertan who has spent his life in the industry? Energy Policy Analyst and Oil & Gas Writer David Yager will bring a perspective grounded in the history of the industry and offer a viewpoint on how we will be challenged living in a world without oil. What is the vision for society as we move away from oil, and hydrocarbons in general?

A resident and native of Calgary, Alberta, David Yager was born into Alberta’s oil and gas industry. An entrepreneur since 1979, he has been a founder, executive and director of three successful TSX listed oilfield service companies. David’s journalism career began 40 years ago as co-owner of an oilfield trade magazine. For decades he has been analysing and writing about oil and gas, politics and energy policy. He remains a frequent contributor to trade publications, newspapers, radio and television and has written background papers and policy positions for oil service trade associations since 1991.
