(1).The Leduc D2 and D3 Units were shut-in from mid-April to mid-August 2020 for a gas plant turnaround. The plant turnaround timing was accelerated due to the market disruptions brought on by the COVID-19 Pandemic and OPEC power struggles. Pre-shutdown production levels of 94 boe/d (74 barrels of oil and natural gas liquids per day and 121 Mcf/d of natural gas) are expected by mid-September, along with monthly net operating income returning to 2019 average levels of approximately $81,000.
