Turner Valley Gas Plant


The Turner Valley Gas Plant is the first commercial oilfield and processing plant in Western Canada. Open on the weekends from May to September, explore the birthplace of Alberta’s petroleum history by taking a guided tour around the buildings and equipment that reflect the history and evolution of natural gas processing.

This plant was first built after natural gas sprayed out of the well bore at Dingman No. 1 in Turner Valley on May 14, 1914. The Turner Valley Gas Plant was one of Canada’s most significant petroleum processing facilities until it closed in 1985. Today, you can tour the site, exhibit hall, and some historic buildings.
