Through progress, Canadian Natural Resources Limited had progressed to primary heavy crude lands in 1993 and purchasing thermal in-situ areas 3 years later, becoming a leader in the in-suti crude oil developments. As of 2000, they sought out to acquire assets from The North Sea along with Offshore Africa while also creating gas conservation with equipment including "pipelines, pad compressors, booster compressors, gas plants, and fuel lines" (Canadian Natural Resources Limited Performance Presentation Primary Recovery Heavy Oil Sands Schemes, n.d.) While continuing to strengthen the Northwestern Alberta and British Columbia 's basins, Canadian Natural Resource Limited furthered their achievements by recognizing synthetic crude oil at the Horizon Oil sands, leading to a shipment of such into the sales pipeline. Also in 2008, Canadian Natural Resources seeked out the ‘Kirby In-Situ Oil Sands’, hoping for approval on another project. From the beginning Canadian Natural Resources has strived to achieve something different and make an impact. Throughout the history of the company, Canadian Natural Resources has continued to search for new and economic ways to improve the company, "predict[ing] an oversupply of natural gas could last as long as seven years, keeping prices low"( 2011, March.

They do work with natural gas and several different kinds of oil (Warnock, 1). They are well known for their gas and diesel sales as the “Husky” or “Husky Truck Stop” gas bars.

Natural gas is becoming a huge player in the Husky Energy Inc. plan as they have natural gas asset “Liwan” valued at 6.5 billion split at 49/51 with China’s CNOOC Ltd. (Catteneo). The relationship between CNOOC has been going on for many years thanks to their current owner.
A.Many of the cars that drive by on the highway, the flame that heats dinner on the stove, and the electrical power that flow through homes share a common attribute: they are fueled by natural gas or oil, both of which are fundamental sources of energy in the US and are mined through the process of fracking.
what’s being seen on the surface of americare isn’t necessary being preached. On Americare’s website it states “At AmeriCares, you will work with smart and compassionate colleagues, be eligible for good benefits, and be a part of a mission driven culture.” Now the customers and co-workers took to topix to give their options on how the culture of Americare truly operates. From what was found, there is a larger majority of people who are fed up with the poor service, pay roll, and even management of Americare. There are also people like Kristina Walton who had this to say “most people who are complaining it’s just a job for them and they don't see the reward of helping an elderly person who has no one else to do so for them”. From the blog post there is a lot of mixed options regarding Americare and how it is currently being ran.

Nearly all Transgender individuals are law-abiding citizens. They have done nothing wrong to have such a necessary freedom stolen from them. Transgender people need consistent and reliable access to safe restrooms just like any other law-abiding citizens.
In addition to the US peak oil situation, the US Oil Drilling and Gas Extraction Industry faces heavy foreign market competition. In 2011, the US ranked 3rd in oil production, behind Saudi Arabia and Russia (Energy, 2012). Saudi Arabia’s OPEC governor expects Saudi output to rise steadily beyond 2030 with a 1.5 million barrel per day spare production capacity then (Energy, 2012). Russia holds the world’s largest
As of 2015, US natural gas proved reserves totalled 324.3 tcfg. The US produces 28.8 mmcfg (million million cubic feet of gas) each year (4). With unrestricted drilling of new sites, totalling 723 tcfg, the US could significantly increase its natural gas production per year in the next 10-20 years (5).
Since 2004 the UK has been a net importer of natural gas, as the North Sea reserves have been exploited and nearly exhausted. Today, ten years later, the UK has become even more dependent on foreign gas with over 50% of demand for gas satisfied by foreign supply (Gloystein, 2013). This increasing dependence on foreign countries is a worrying trend, due to the adverse effects it can have, which include being subjected to price shocks, supply shortages and manipulation both economically and politically. Energy insecurity has arisen through a lack of investment in other

Husky Energy Inc. is a recognizable company to many Canadians. Most people just know it as “The Husky” and see it as just merely an oil company that is operated through North America. Although Husky Energy Inc. is based in Alberta and Saskatchewan, it is a worldwide enterprise. “China, Greenland, and Libya” all have Husky Energy within their countries (Husky Energy Inc.). The now privately owned business is valued at “28 billion as of October 2009” (Warnock, 1) and is growing exponentially. They are continuing expansion, becoming much more than a gas and oil supplier. They understand the changes are essential in being a successful corporation.

General Electric is a well-known company in many regions of the world, but what people aren’t particularly aware of are the steps that General Electric has taken to get to where it is at today. When I think of General Electric the first thing that comes to mind is the role that the company plays in the production of household appliances, but General Electric is a much bigger contributor to people’s lives than is most people realize. People aren’t familiar with the internal business decisions that General Electric makes to ensure that the company continues to grow and run as smoothly as possible, allowing the company to continue to provide people with the services that they have grown to recognize as being a trademark of General Electric.
