Notice of Application
Application No. 1860786
840586 Alberta Ltd.
Pembina Field

The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) has received application 1860786.

Description of the Application
840586 Alberta Ltd. (840586) has applied under section 80 of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act (OGCA) for a pooling order prescribing that all tracts within the drilling spacing unit comprising Section 8, Township 43, Range 2, West of the 5th Meridian, be operated as a unit to produce gas in excess of solution gas from the Pembina Glauconitic F3F pool through oil well 00/13-08-043-02W5/0.

In regard to determining gas in excess of solution gas from the oil well, the applicant proposes that it should be based on the initial solution gas–oil ratio (GOR) established by the AER for the pool, where any gas produced in the wellbore in excess of that which would be expected would be considered to be gas-cap gas and therefore subject to the applied-for compulsory pooling order. The applicant has requested, among other things, that ConocoPhillips Canada Resources Corp. be named operator of the well and that costs and revenues under the pooling order be allocated on a tract-area basis, with half of the actual costs of drilling and completing the well split among all tract owners. The applicant has also asked that no penalty be applied to a tract owner’s share of the costs of drilling and completing the well if the tract owner does not pay within 30 days of being notified in writing of its share of the actual costs.
