Calgary Herald by Dan Healing. Mexico, with high energy production and low domestic demand, plus few export barriers, had the lowest energy security risk in 2010 of the top 25 energy-consuming nations of the world. The list places the United Kingdom second, Norway third, New Zealand fourth, Denmark fifth, Australia sixth and the United States seventh. Canada is eighth, just slightly behind the average score of developed OECD (Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development) countries and a little better than Germany, Indonesia and France. "On balance, Canada's energy security is about average, but it has tremendous potential to improve its own security," the study says, adding efficient development of oilsands is key.
