Webinar with Dennis McConaghy: Status of the Energy Market in Alberta and Beyond

April 26, 2020



Dennis McConaghy is the former Executive Vice-President of Corporate Development at TransCanada Corporation (now TC Energy). Previously, he was Executive Vice-President, Pipeline Strategy and Development. Dennis joined TransCanada in 1998, and held senior positions in Corporate Strategy & Development, Midstream/Divestments, and Business Development. He has more than 30 years’ experience in oil and gas, including responsibility for Keystone XL. He is also the author of two books: Breakdown: The Pipeline Debate and the Threat to Canada's Future (Dundurn, 2019), which was recently selected as a finalist for the Donner Prize; and Dysfunction: Canada After Keystone XL (Dundurn, 2016). 

This virtual session focused on the current status of Alberta’s energy markets, the economic and social impacts from COVID-19, and the opportunities and risk in sustainable investing. A large portion of this segment also focused on the relationship between Alberta and the United States. McConaghy drew on personal insights from his time at TransCanada and also discussed his new book. Western students and faculty were then given the opportunity to ask questions and have open conversations with McConaghy. 

This webinar was organized by the MBA Energy and Resources Club.
