Other indicators of the industry’s health paint a conflicting picture, as well. As gas prices fell to a 12-year low, land sale revenue hit a new all-time high in 2011. Drilling was steady, but a lack of skilled workers is limiting growth opportunities. The strong Canadian dollar continues to hamper export revenues.
