The depths to possible oil and gas horizons is so great that it is useless to expect success in the area extending for many miles east of the Turner valley. Gas still bubbles up from the ground near the location of the discovery well, and geological formations are still visible in the eroded bank of the Sheep River.

In the early years, petroleum geologists used similar outcrops and exposed formations to detect deeply buried pools and traps that might hold oil.

Download Citation | Development of the Turner Valley Gas and Oil Field | Canada's oil production is obtained almost entirely from the Turner Valleygas and oil field, in the Province of Alberta.

Situated on the north bank of the Sheep River, the gas works site is located just inside the boundaries of the Town of Turner Valley.

Since the facility was decommissioned insome of its structures have been dismantled for safety reasons. Stock market speculation in Alberta-based oil and gas exploration increased and the province.

The Turner Valley oil and gas field stretches from the Quirk Creek and Millarville area in the north to the Highwood River near Longview in the south. In geological terms, it is a dome-shape formation described as a sandstone trap anticline containing gas on top, then oil, and, finally, water at the bottom.

Turner Valley is a town in the Calgary Region of Alberta, Canada within the Municipal District of Foothills No.

It is located on Highway 22 (Cowboy Trail), 3 km ( mi) west of Black Diamond and approximately 60 km (37 mi) southwest of was named after Robert and John Turner who settled in the area in The town was once the centre of an oil and natural gas boom.

The trail after the bridge was very rocky and one of the river passes was quite dangerous with lots of boulders now in the river bed.

It was amazing to see just how powerful the river can be at times. In the s, the flaring of gas created a serious problem for Royalite. Years of uncontrolled flaring of natural gas had resulted in a drop in pressure throughout the Turner Valley field making it more difficult to bring oil to the surface.

In Royalite opened the first Canadian high-pressure lean oil facility. The Dingman No. 1 and Dingman No. 2 wells on the banks of the Sheep River, Turner Valley, These two wells ushered in Alberta’s first major oil boom, which saw the drilling of hundreds of wells and the establishment of numerous communities in the Turner Valley region.

(Provincial Archives of Alberta, P). Alberta's capital city, Edmonton, is located at about the geographic centre of the province.

It is the most northerly major city in Canada, and serves as a gateway and hub for resource development in northern Canada. The region, with its proximity to Canada's largest oil fields, has most of western Canada's oil refinery capacity.
