To advance public understanding and knowledge of the unique history of petroleum discovery and development
in southern Alberta centred on the Turner Valley oilfield, including the Turner Valley Gas Plant, and to promote energy literacy.
Learning from the Turner Valley petroleum experience.
The TVOS is organized around the core value of honouring the people, their struggles, and innovations that
comprise the technical and cultural history the Turner Valley Oilfield region of southern Alberta. We share a
strong sense of community and a desire to collaborate with partners to tell the story of the people and institutions
that were key to the development of the area and form a bridge to contemporary challenges broadly captured
under the term energy literacy.
