In 2018, Birchcliff drilled, completed and brought on production 27 (27.0 net) wells in 2018, consisting of 13 (13.0 net) Montney/Doig horizontal oil wells in the Gordondale area and 14 (14.0 net) Montney/Doig condensate-rich horizontal natural gas wells in the Pouce Coupe area.
In Q4 2018, Birchcliff drilled an additional 9 (9.0 net) horizontal wells (5 in Pouce Coupe and 4 in Gordondale) which were originally targeted for 2019 in order to help to ensure the efficient execution of the 2019 Capital Program. All wells drilled in 2018 were drilled on multi-well pads, which allows Birchcliff to reduce its per well costs and environmental footprint.
