Do you know what “black gold” is?
Alberta is synonymous with oil. Since the commissioning of the first wells, in the aftermath of World War II, oil, or “black gold”, has transformed the province into one of the most prosperous in Canada. The number of wells drilled grew from 41 in 1947, to 375,928, in April 2012. (Source: CAAP Technical report, Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers).
