With recent world events directly affecting the crude oil exports, the trend for this industry remains upward. Equity values of U.S.-based supermajor oil & gas companies are estimated to rise alongside forecasts for improved global economic growth and crude oil prices. S&P believes global GDP expanded 4.1% in 2010 and will grow 3.5% in 2011 and 4.0% in 2012. It is believed that with the continued merger and acquisition activity, notably in North America and other frontier regions, the continuation of drilling in several Countries is likely to increase. An example of this being the growing volumes of Canadian oil imports, as well as greater takeaway capacity from the Rockies.
