Media Advisory: Fraser Institute's Annual Global Petroleum Survey Coming Tuesday, December 1

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 30, 2015) - The Fraser Institute's 2015 Global Petroleum Survey -an international survey of senior executives in the upstream oil and gas sector - will be released Tuesday, December 1.

The annual survey ranks 126 jurisdictions around the world based on their barriers to investment (ie: high taxes, costly regulatory obligations and uncertainty over environmental regulations).

In addition to the most current rankings, the survey allows for regional comparisons and analysis of jurisdictions that have improved, or fallen behind, in terms of government policies that deter oil and gas investment.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on December 1 at 5:30 a.m. (Eastern).
