Moose/McLean Field Summary
- 68 Bcf of gas reserves and more than 3 -5 million barrels of oil reserves to support long-term green projects at Quirk Creek Plant
- Additions to production will be achieved through construction of Tank Terminal and Blending Facility
- Proposed gas injection to reduce royalty burden at Moose Mountain
- Total working interest production (2019 Jan to Aug) of 2,087 boe/d with high liquid content and low decline from Turner Valley Formation.
- Ownership of pipeline systems that connect Moose Mountain and McLean Creek to Jumping Pound facility. Future potential redirection to Quirk Creek.
- Moose Mountain Pad 1 oil treated and transported through pipeline to Pad 3 for trucking; Pad 3 oil currently shut-in due to lack of sour treatment for solution gas
- Current Moose Mountain sour gas to be blended with Jumping Pound fuel gas to meet pipeline specification (less than 25% H2S).
Moose light sour crude oil and gas (approximately 42% H2S, and 8% CO2) is processed at Pad 1 with separators, compressors, stabilizers and dehydrators. An oil production line from Pad 1 to Jumping Pound was washed out in the 2013 floods and production is currently being piped from Pad 1 to Pad 3 (in the Valley) to permit trucks to transport oil to markets. Caledonian will repair the Jumping Pound production line enabling Pad 3 wells to be brought back on to the main facility at Pad 1.
