- Cardium light oil development (1,800 m depth)
- Mannville liquids-rich gas inventory (2,400 - 2,700 m depth)
- Extensive position in Duvernay liquids-rich gas resource play (3,200 - 3,400 m depth)
The acquired assets are comprised of high netback, light oil producing assets in the Northgate region of southeast Saskatchewan and include approximately 57,000 net acres of land (approximately 80% undeveloped), seven oil batteries, and preferential access to 50% or greater capacity at a solution gas facility that is currently under construction. The majority of production and development drilling opportunities are from the Midale formation, with additional opportunities identified in the Frobisher, Bakken and Three Forks/Torquay formations.
The acquisition creates a new core area for our Company in the Williston Basin where we have been evaluating producing entry opportunities for an extended period of time. We believe the multi-horizon, horizontal well techniques employed in this area are well-suited to the expertise we have established during development of our Pembina-area assets in Alberta. The assets are geographically complementary to recent leasing activity we have conducted for Mississippian development in southwest Manitoba and exhibit the three hallmark characteristics of our sustainable growth-and-income model: high margins, low base decline rates and strong capital investment efficiencies on future development.
