Both non-renewable energy resources (oil) and Green technologies (solar, wind, and geo-thermal); One can argue that Weyburn is well-known on the international R&D stage due to the oil industry that has driven the local economy since the 1950s. Canada’s Largest Enhanced Oil recovery operation and the world’s largest CO2 sequestration site is located just miles south of the city. In addition to that, one of North America’s most prolific oil deposits, the Bakken formation, is located south and east of Weyburn. The rich history of oil paired with the use of modern recovery technologies yield a community that has access to a skilled labor force and resources for future conventional oil operations.
