Sales volumes of natural gas during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 averaged 1.3 MMcf/d (net) (2012: 1.8 MMcf/d (net)). The Corporation has 5 (1.75 net) Montney wells being produced through its 10 MMcf/d (3.5 MMcf/d net) gas plant located on the western portion of its lands at Farrell Creek, British Columbia.
FARRELL CREEK OUTLOOK
Farrell Creek represents a significant natural gas resource in the Montney Formation. 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 to increase existing production from its western lands. As part of any associated fracking operation, CSRI will be sourcing fresh water from its 25% owned water pipeline. This pipeline was commissioned during 2012 and is able to deliver up to 10,000 m3/d of fresh water from the Williston Reservoir to the Farrell Creek/Altares area on a year-round basis.
Recent activity in and around the Farrell Creek area has supported the value of CSRI’s Farrell Creek Montney project which consists of over 26,000 net acres of land. On November 8, 2013, Petronas announced the acquisition of Talisman’s Montney properties located at Farrell Creek and Cypress for $1.5 billion. The parties have ascribed the land value for this deal at $5,000 per acre. Also on the same date, Enerplus announced that they had sold their Montney acreage at Julienne Creek for $130 million. This sale included 33,000 net acres with no production or reserves.
The Corporation had $1.5 million of working capital as at September 30, 2013 and has no debt.
