Oil and Gas  

The Region of Newell has one of Alberta’s most active natural gas fields. There are roughly 30,000 wells in the Region, which accounts for half of all wells in Alberta, and 37% of all wells in Canada.  Approximately 170 production and service companies employ 1,325 people in the energy sector in the region.

All the major players in the oil and gas sector have operations in the County of Newell. Cenovus Energy is the largest single employer in the energy sector in the County.

The sector continues to grow in the region, generating associated service and secondary energy industrial (including alternative energy) opportunities that tap local labour force skill sets. It's common, for example, for a farm operation to also have an oilfield service business. 

There is also potential to tap oilfield services skill sets in niche areas including but not limited to fabrication. The 
Southeast Alberta Metal group is a group of local companies partnered to develop the local industry through a business driven collaborative process.   Exploring new and innovative ways of improving productivity, the group is taking steps to meet the challenges of the rapidly changing industry. By collaborating with other members as well as with regional, provincial and federal stakeholders the group aims to improve competitiveness, capacity and knowledge sharing.
