The Fort St. John Curling Club kicks off the 4th Annual FSJ Energy Expo


Some of the topics of discussion included, project management, safety regulations and innovations within the industry.

President of Energy Service B.C., Dave Turchanski projected his company’s ability to be a part of contracted projects, whether it is building a lease, road, pipeline, new facility or even an environmental assessment.

“I hope we get a good response to people here, as far as Fort St. John is concerned, it’s a gas industry-based city,” Turchanski said. “I think we’re positioned very well for the next decade with the amount of LNG that is sitting underneath the ground in front of us.”

“This industry is at the point that safety is just a must,” Vig explained. “There’s so much going on in the industry now and there are so many people out there, without it there would be so many more injuries and deaths.”
