Of note this month:
- Baytex continues to lead the way in the Clearwater, with all of the top 10 producing Clearwater oil wells in the month. Those wells ranged in production from 545 b/d all the way up to 972 b/d. According to the company’s presentation, Baytex plans to bring 33 net Clearwater wells onstream in 2023.
- Canadian Natural Resources had 4 of the top 15 Clearwater oil wells in the month, coming from Marten Hills. CNRL has “940,000 acres of net Clearwater acres with exploration upside” (from CNRL presentation) and continues to be quite active in the play.
- Headwater had 1 well in the top 15 for the month of December, with its top well coming from Marten Hills and producing at an average daily rate of 504 b/d of oil.
