Welcome to the TVOS Blog

The TVOS is embarking on an effort to establish relationships with governments, industry associations, and various associations who share an interest in advancing public understanding and knowledge of the unique history of petroleum discovery and development in southern Alberta centered on the Turner Valley oilfield, including the Turner Valley Gas Plant, and working on educational programs to enhance energy literacy.  Through stronger relationships with these stakeholders, the TVOS will honour the people, their struggles, and innovations that comprise the technical and cultural history of the Turner Valley Oilfield region of southern Alberta.

We invite anyone who has a story to tell about the people who shaped the area to contact us.  From time to time, this blog will feature stories that spotlight the rich technical and cultural history of the region.
