- The significant drop in commodity prices at the end of 2014 has had a continued negative impact on the energy sector in Canada. CSRI’s response has been to defer capital spending at Farrell Creek/Altares and to maintain its financial flexibility. In doing so, the Corporation ended the first quarter 2015 in the enviable position of having positive working capital and no debt. In addition, CSRI has no current obligations on its Farrell Creek/Altares lands.
- The downturn has had the positive effect of significant cost reductions for services. The Corporation is integrating these new costs into its capital expenditure plans to better assess future funding requirements.
- The combined effects of industry activity, principally drilling and land sale results proximal to CSRI’s lands, and of newly approved pipeline infrastructure, notably the TCPL North Montney Mainline crossing the Farrell Creek/Altares lands, continue to enhance the Corporation’s potential as a meaningful contributor to the natural gas supply system in northeastern British Columbia and Alberta.
