FARRELL CREEK OPERATIONS
CSRI, along with its joint venture partner, successfully fracked and flow-tested in the third quarter 2012 a previously drilled vertical well at 12-7-83-24W6 located on the eastern portion of its Farrell Creek property. The drilling and completion of this well enabled the Corporation to retain seven sections of land for an additional term of five years. The well was fracture stimulated in the upper, middle and lower zones in the Montney Formation. Although there was no evidence of free condensate being produced, the prospectivity of natural gas in all three zones was confirmed.
The joint venture has also approved a well to be located at 3-24-83-25W6 on its eastern lands at Farrell Creek. It is expected that the drilling operations will commence early in the first quarter 2013. Fracture stimulation of this well is expected to occur after spring break-up 2013.
The Corporation currently has no debt, and has C$3.4 million of working capital as at September 30, 2012.
