Turner Valley, May 14, 1914. The dramatic rush blasting from Calgary Petroleum Product's Dingman #1 well would soon help change the nature of Alberta forever. Here, the discovery of petroleum 100 years ago led to the creation of Alberta's first natural gas plant, helping start the modern era of oil and gas exploration and processing. The Turner Valley Gas Plant is a tangible industrial remnant of the development of the Turner Valley Oilfield, western Canada's first commercial petroleum producer.
