Shallow Zone Development

Development of Shallow Zones (Viking, Mannville, Banff/Bakken & Exshaw).  The area is in second generation development having been extensively vertically drilled for shallow targets. Horizontal drills with multi-stage fracturing will be used to target these highly delineated formations. This technology is proven to unlock previously uneconomic tight clastic and shale reservoirs. In excess of 750 locations have been identified for re-entry and re-completion, over 250 of which are cased. This is a low risk and cost effective liquids production strategy that will be largely developed through farm out agreements with joint venture partners.
