What We Do

We are a Calgary-based group, entirely run by volunteers. Our regular activities are lunches with speakers and Archives newsletter about 8 times a year. We have conducted 3 oral history projects and are always looking for new projects. We welcome anyone with an interest in petroleum history and have members from many segments of the industry.

Telling Our Story

The history of the Canadian petroleum industry is the story of Alberta's foremost industry. And the Petroleum History Society is a group of volunteers dedicated to preserving that story and telling it. See our brochure.
