Learn how Encana's vision, strategy and goals are set in motion with its 2014 guidance.
Our operations in and around Strathmore focus primarily on coalbed methane (CBM) and shallow gas development. The low-pressure, sweet gas we develop here is located in coal found in various areas of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. One of our predecessor companies drilled our first two wells in Strathmore in 1962.
The Cavalier Power Station is a natural gas-fired plant located 16 kilometres southeast of Strathmore, Alberta. The station supplies enough electricity to the Alberta power grid to service a city with a population of approximately 100,000.
We have been safely and responsibly developing CBM in Alberta for more than six years. Protecting groundwater is of paramount importance to us and we’re committed to working with stakeholders to help them understand how we protect this precious natural resource.

Race Against Hunger raises $41,700 for Wheatland County Food Bank
Raising food, funds and awareness for local food banks during the summer months when donations are historically at their lowest, the Race Against Hunger had a very successful showing at this year’s Strathmore Heritage Days.
In support of the Wheatland County Food Bank, World Professional Chuckwagon Association (WPCA) drivers bagged groceries at the Strathmore Sobeys and mingled with local fans. With Encana’s match and support from the WPCA, the local 4-H club and community members, 557 pounds of food and $41,784.26 was raised for the Wheatland County Food Bank.
