Application No. 1873382
840586 Alberta Ltd.
Twining Field

The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) has received Application No. 1873382.

Description of the Application

840586 Alberta Ltd. has applied under section 80 of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act for a pooling order prescribing that all tracts within the drilling spacing unit comprising Section 4, Township 33, Range 24, West of the 4th Meridian, be operated as a unit to produce gas in excess of solution gas from the Twining Rundle A pool through oil well 00/06-04-033-24W4/0.

In regard to determining gas in excess of solution gas, the applicant has proposed that it should be based on the initial solution gas–oil ratio established by the AER for the pool. This means that any gas produced in the wellbore in excess of the expected gas-cap gas would be considered gas in excess of solution gas and therefore subject to the applied-for pooling order.

The applicant has requested, among other things, that costs and revenues under the pooling order be allocated on a tract-area basis and that Pine Cliff Energy Ltd. be named operator of the well. The applicant has also requested that there be no equalization for the actual costs of drilling and completing the well since none of the current tract owners incurred these costs directly.
