Message to Shareholders
PEI continues to restructure in order to appreciate and stabilize production with safe operating infrastructure and reliable service providers. Legacy arrears and non-compliance optics have been difficult hurdles to overcome. However, PEI restructuring efforts operationally, financially, and environmentally have attributed to establishing an effective relationship with the critical service providers. Year-End 2021 financial audit identified significant internal controls and procedures that are being incorporated as policies, thus, restructuring accounting practices to be prompt, accurate, and reliable in order to be compliant and profitable.
In the second quarter of 2022, PEI has piloted re-entry horizontal to customize the drilling process and the mechanical tweaks to be compatible with the formation characteristics and conditions. The geological and production risks are low due to well control, interpreted 3D seismic, and production history. These pilots will architect the horizontal program to commence PEI’s second development phase to capture the significant remaining reserves. PEI is pleased to announce pilots’ horizontal wells are licenced and have begun executing the test pilot re-entry horizontals to confirm PEI engineering and geological assessments. The pilots will also assist in understanding the scope of the economics of the drilling program. PEI is looking forward to providing the results of the pilots.
Prospera is a public oil and gas exploration, exploitation and development company focusing on conventional oil and gas reservoirs in Western Canada. Prospera will use its experience to develop, acquire, and drill assets with potential for primary and secondary recovery.
