In 1951 the Peace River region gained fame, as a major producer of oil and gas in British Columbia. In that year the “Fort St. John No. 1” well hit gas at a depth of 1,524 metres. A few months later, in January 1952, the first deep well hit gas at 4,418 metres. Drilled on the Bouffioux Farm, that well is still producing today.
Transportation/infrastructure improved at a rapid rate after that. In 1952, the Hart Highway finally connected the region to the rest of British Columbia, and in 1958 the Pacific Great Eastern Railway arrived in Dawson Creek. That ease of transportation has allowed the region’s agricultural and forest industries to compete in distant markets.
