This is an invitation to submit a Non-Binding Bid for any of the properties by April 6, 2017.

Progress / Valhalla     

  • Current net production is 141 BOE/day (~40% light oil) from mostly high working interest vertical Triassic producers
  • Upside: Doig horizontal development with multi-stage fracturing
    • 5 sections (4.5 net) considered to be highly prospective with gas-in-place of 6 to 8 Bcf per section
  • Upside: Charlie Lake (Braeburn) horizontal development
    • 3 sections (2.8 net) considered to be highly prospective
  • Upside: Montney horizontal development
    • Several sections of high interest land in 76-09 W6M with offsetting development
  • Upside: Halfway horizontal developmen
    • 2 sections with 75% and 25% working interest expected to be developed by the operator
  • Upside: Boundary Lake pool extension onto recently acquired 100% working interest land
  • Recent discussions with a third party midstream operator to access gas processing capacity in a new processing facility to be centrally-located on interest land

Spirit River 

  • Current net production is 9 Bbls/day of shallow decline oil in a vertical 50% WI Charlie Lake (Braeburn) well
  • Land is likely to be pooled in the near term for horizontal development of the Charlie Lake
  • Due to challenging access in this area, Barnwell’s existing road and surface lease have strategic value to further development in the area

  • Additional 23 BOE/day, consisting of 130 Mcf/day of sales gas and 1.5 Bbls/day of condensate, were shut-in with low gas prices and facility constraints, and are expected to be restarted in 2017
  • Upside includes multi-zone development and restart potential
  • Montney interests ranging from 3.1% to 15.8% in 6 sections of land with active areal Montney horizontal development


  • Current net production is 24 BOE/day, consisting of 7.5 Bbls/day of oil, 1.0 Bbls/day of natural gas liquids, and 94 Mcf/day of sales gas from 1.6 net (3 gross) producing wells
  • Existing production and reactivations


  • 75% and 100% working interests in the Charlie Lake on 2 sections of land with nearby horizontal development
    • Tie-in the 75% working interest well that tested 1.5 MMcf/day at stable rates from the Charlie Lake in late 2015
  • 65% and 75% working interests in the Montney on 2 sections of land
    • The vertical 75% interest well also tested 450 Mcf/day from the Montney
