About Us

We are a team dedicated to safe and responsible natural gas and oil exploration in the province of New Brunswick. We began our exploration program in 2010, and continue today within our licence areas, with a focus on better understanding the geology of the region and its potential for natural gas and oil.

In March 2010, the Province of New Brunswick accepted our bid for a licence to search, exploring 1 million hectares (2.5 million acres) in the province. We are committed to invest approximately $47 million CAD in the province.

SWN Resources Canada, Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Southwestern Energy Company. Founded in 1929, Southwestern Energy is a growing North American company, with more than 2,300 employees, that focuses on the exploration and production of oil and natural gas.

What others are saying about us:
"I spent 28 years working in the energy industry before finally having the opportunity to work in the Maritimes, closer to my home and family. I joined SWN in May 2013 to work on their exploration program. Not having to be away from my kids for months at a time to work in this industry was an incredible feeling. Over the years, I have worked with many different companies, all of which had their own ways of getting things done. Whenever there was any question of how to proceed with any aspect of the project SWN’s management team always made a conscious effort to go above and beyond all industry standards. Not only am I happy to be working closer to home but am a firm believer that SWN is a company I can be proud to work with."

What others are saying about us:
“Although I only worked for SWN for a short time it was an unbelievable experience! They provided safety for all employees and that made each person feel comfortable with their surroundings. Everyone from SWN was great to work with and showed a great deal of respect to all workers. Having the opportunity to take on a job in New Brunswick was fantastic as it was closer to home. I would definitely say they did their job right. Thumbs up for SWN.”
