- Alberta wants to kickstart investment with tax credits
- Province earmarks $75M for capital investment tax credit
Seven Generations Energy is one of 18 groups approved by the province for a tax break of up to 10 per cent on new machinery, equipment and buildings.
The company received the maximum $5-million credit and is now building a new gas processing facility in the Kakwa River area.
Spokesperson Alan Boras said construction will be completed by the end of 2018, creating scores of new jobs in the northwestern Alberta region.
“We’ve been on a strong growth plan and we’re continuing on that growth plan,” Boras said.

The company’s Kakwa River Project is a natural gas property that covers more than 500,000 acres.
