On a farm southwest of Edmonton in 1947, a huge oil discovery at Leduc #1 made news around the world. It was the beginning of Western Canada’s modern oil industry. What does it take to be a “roughneck” (drilling rig worker) and go in search of oil? How do you discover, drill and pump oil from the ground? This national historic site reveals all. Outside the Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre, you can examine drilling rigs and vehicles used in oil exploration. A café, gift shop, camping and caravan Park are all available on site.
