Moose Mountain & McLean Creek History
The first well in the Moose Mountain area was drilled in 1961. In the winter of 1992/93 Husky Oil drilled a discovery well into the Rundle C Sheet near Moose Mountain in Kananaskis Country. In September of 1993 Husky applied and received approval for pipelines in the Moose Mountain area.
Caledonian’s Moose Mountain and McLean Creek facilities are located at high elevation in areas of unparalleled scenic beauty.
The Moose Oil C Pool is penetrated by five oil wells drilled from two pads. The wells 10-14, 2-23 & 12-23-023-07W5 in the southeast part of the pool are all drilled from Pad 1, while the wells 10-22 and 2-27-023-07W5 are drilled from Pad 3 in the northwest part of the pool. Four of the vertical wells were spuded from 1992 to 1995, where the pool production history began with the two wells on Pad 3 in 1998. Later in 2010 two more vertical wells from Pad 1 were brought on production. A horizontal well 12-23, was spuded in August 2010, tested and brought on production in January 2018, increasing to rates of 800 bopd plus for several months, along with the two vertical wells from the same Pad 1.
