Natural Gas

Alberta produces just over 70% of all natural gas in Canada. It is one of the cheapest, cleanest and efficient sources of energy available.

In Alberta there are both conventional natural gas deposits and unconventional supplies such as coal-bed methane and shale gas. New technologies being developed all the time are finding new economic ways to source and extract unconventional natural gas.

Natural gas in Alberta is a key energy source for the Alberta Oil Sands and Electric power generation
