These are the findings of a unique edition of the Global Advisor Study, an Ipsos survey conducted between May 9 and June 7, 2019 on behalf of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP).

For the results of the survey, 26,325 adults aged 18-64 in Canada and the U.S., and age 16-64 in all other countries, were interviewed. More than 1,000 individuals participated on a country-by-country basis via the Ipsos Online Panel with the exception of Argentina, Belgium, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Sweden, Turkey, Hungary, Peru, Algeria, Columbia, Ecuador, Nigeria, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela, where each had a sample of approximately 500 individuals.
