It’s not all about Alberta
Re: “B.C. gas boom is real, all right,” (Tom Fletcher, The Leader, Feb. 19).
Of course the B.C. gas boom is real. Our younger generation has its head buried so deeply in the Alberta oil sands that it has forgotten, or is not aware of, our very own natural gas boom in the Peace River area in northeastern B.C. going back to 1957, in which Pacific Petroleums was a major player.
It resulted in our own Westcoast Transmission gas pipeline through which we are receiving our natural gas at present.
Shale gas potential was known at this time. Relatively new technology is now making it possible to harvest this new boom.
