Despite the winds that appeared to keep some visitors from venturing outside for too long, the first day of the Saskatchewan Oil & Gas Show appeared to be a success. The bi-annual event showcases the oil & gas industry, including some of the latest technology and development.  

Aleana Young, the Saskatchewan NDP critic for energy and resources, said she looks forward to making the trip to Weyburn for the show.  

“We have such leaders in innovation, and all the contractors and service providers who come out,” Young said of the event. “It’s kind of the best of what Saskatchewan has to offer when it comes to local service providers and innovation.” 

She added one of the things she was interested in learning more about was the work with CO2 being done in the area.  

Premier Scott Moe was also at the show, where he spoke at the luncheon. He also made an announcement about a deal with Teine Energy and the Saskatchewan Distance Learning Centre that would see a course about the oil and gas industries being made available for high school students.  

Like everyone else in attendance, Moe was excited to see all there was to offer at the show.  

“It’s incredibly educational to walk through here, and talk to some of the folks about what they’re doing to make for a more sustainable production environment in Saskatchewan, but also focused on producing more, other products, in an economic fashion as well.” 

The Saskatchewan Oil & Gas Show continues today and wraps up at 3:00 p.m.
