Construction of its 9-14 pad-site has been completed north of the Wapiti River and the company expects to spud its first well there in early August. A rig has been contracted for the drilling of 7 (7.0 net) Montney wells and 2 (2.0 net) water disposal wells. The expected completion date is before June 2019.
In the fall of 2018, construction of its gas management site located at 5-14-071-07-W6M in the Dimsdale area is expected to begin. Two water disposal wells and a compressor facility will be included at this location. The wells and compressor will be connected to the planned Tidewater Midstream & Infrastructure Ltd. deep cut sour gas processing facility.
Surface rights to all lands related to the gas management site have been secured by the company.
The development work includes the acquisition of 16 pad sites, with an additional 6 pad sites surveyed and the licensing of 29 Montney wells. Fourteen of these licenses are for the area north of the Wapiti River.
