CSRI’s sales volumes of natural gas during the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 averaged 1.3 MMcf/d (net) (2012: 1.9 MMcf/d (net)). The Corporation has 5 (1.75 net) Montney wells being produced through its 10 MMcf/d (3.5 net) gas plant located on its western lands at Farrell Creek, British Columbia.
FARRELL CREEK OUTLOOK
Farrell Creek represents a significant natural gas resource in the Montney Formation. With over 26,000 net acres of Montney rights, CSRI has identified that over 1,100 gross well locations will be required to recover a portion of approximately 5 Tcf (net to CSRI) of natural gas-in-place. CSRI continues to focus on its eastern lands due to their prospectivity for natural gas liquids and is evaluating options on increasing existing production from its western lands.
CSRI is also evaluating the capability of using shallower formations as produced water disposal zones. Being able to create a solution for produced water disposal, combined with CSRI’s 25% working interest in the 10,000 m3/d frac water source pipeline from the Williston Reservoir, will provide the Corporation with a fully integrated approach to water handling in the Farrell Creek area. With both access to fresh water and an environmentally safe plan to dispose of produced water, CSRI is capable of ramping up a Montney Formation drilling program quickly should natural gas prices improve in the near future.
The Corporation had C$1.6 million of working capital as at June 30, 2013 and has no debt.
