Gerald will oversee the Company’s geotechnical objectives of pursuing, identifying and developing oil and gas liquids opportunities.
The Company also wishes to announce the departure of John Behr. Mr. Behr has made significant contributions to the growth of the organization during his tenure, and played a key role in both advancing the Company’s Montney play and the recent sale process involving the Montney assets. On behalf of the Board of Directors and the management of the Company, we wish him the very best in his future endeavours.
