Passing of Wes Rabey

It is with great sadness that we inform you about the passing of our founder Wes Rabey.  As a mentor in the Energy Industry in Calgary, Wes touched many lives with his enthusiasm for knowledge, charm and grace.  An integral part of the success and culture at Sigma, Wes will be greatly missed.

Sigma Explorations was founded in 1966 by Wes Rabey.  Having set the foundation of his career with Imperial Oil in 1945, Wes quickly became an influential member in the advancement of the geophysical industry.   His contributions range vastly from founding Accurate Geophysical in 1950 to conducting the first participation survey in the history of the industry.   In recognition of such achievements, Wes was  inducted into the Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame in 1998.   Wes passed away at the age of 99 in June of 2021.

A Celebration of Life will be held at McInnis & Holloway on Wednesday July 28th, 2021.  Details in the link below.
