It was here in the prairies southwest of Calgary that Alberta's legendary oil and gas industries were born. On May 14, 1914, A.W. Dingman struck gas, and the era of the Wild West changed forever. The Turner Valley Gas Plant stands as a symbolic link between the golden era of the cowboy and the new age of the motor car. The plant at one time cornered 97 per cent of Alberta's oil and gas production.
