"Out in the oil patch" Rural Alberta Tip by Darby2
Rural Alberta, Edmonton: 5 reviews and 5 photos
Out in the oil patch is definitely off the beaten path! Much of the oil and gas exploration in Alberta is based in Edmonton.
This is a view of Refinery Row on the east side of Edmonton on 17th street, with a field of blooming canola in the foreground. The huge Petro-Canada refinery is on the right and the Strathcona refinery is on the left. Downtown is more or less in the centre. Both are undergoing massive upgrades to meet the refining capacity needed for the oil coming from Fort McMurray's oilsands projects. Alberta currently produces more than 2.7 million barrels of crude per day.
