Meeting the world’s energy
needs while reducing emissions

Tourmaline has placed sustainability and responsible development at the core of our strategy since we began operations. Our vision of sustainability encompasses not only respect for the environment, but also building positive and constructive relationships with the communities in which we operate, and providing a safe work environment for our employees and service providers.

Natural Gas – the cleanest choice for the future

With an increased global emphasis on climate change and associated regulation, we believe natural gas will play a larger role in meeting the world’s energy needs and lead to a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Supporting our local communities

Tourmaline is proud to be a responsible and contributing member of the communities in which we operate, including the Edson, Grande Prairie, Fort St. John and Calgary areas in Alberta and British Columbia. We contribute to these communities primarily through our capital program, which benefits local suppliers and vendors, creates jobs and generates tax revenue for regional municipalities. We are a significant employer in the region.
