Peace River Arch

Peace River Arch

Our operations are concentrated within our one core area, the Peace River Arch, which is centred northwest of Grande Prairie, Alberta, adjacent to the Alberta/British Columbia border. The Peace River Arch is considered by management to be one of the most desirable natural gas and light oil drilling areas in North America.

The Peace River Arch is one of the most prolific natural gas and oil producing areas of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and is generally characterized by multiple horizons with a myriad of structural, stratigraphic and hydrodynamic traps. There is an abundance of resource plays, related in part to the proximity of the area to the Deep Basin, where generation and trapping of hydrocarbons preferentially occurs. The Peace River Arch provides all-season access that allows us to drill, equip and tie-in wells on an almost continuous basis. In addition, we have excellent control of and/or access to infrastructure in the Peace River Arch, which helps us to control our costs and expand our production.
