Drilling

We drilled a total of 54 (54.0 net) wells during 2017. Of the 54 (54.0 net) wells drilled during 2017, 16 (16.0 net) were Montney horizontal oil and natural gas wells drilled in the Gordondale area, 37 (37.0 net) were Montney/Doig horizontal natural gas wells drilled in the Pouce Coupe area and 1 (1.0 net) was a Montney/Doig vertical science and technology well drilled in the Pouce Coupe area. Of these 54 wells, a total of 51 (51.0 net) wells were brought on production during 2017. In addition, our 2017 capital program also included the capital associated with the completion, equipping and tie-in of 10 wells drilled in 2016, all of which were brought on production in the first quarter of 2017. Accordingly, a total of 61 (61.0 net) wells were brought on production during 2017.

All wells drilled in 2017 were drilled on multi-well pads, which allows us to reduce our per well costs and our environmental footprint. In addition, we actively employ the evolving technology utilized by the industry regarding horizontal well drilling and the related multi-stage fracture stimulation technology.
