Ziff Energy and Gas Processing Management announce the completion of a 220 page Integrated Tight Gas and Duvernay Growth Resource and Infrastructure
Analysis in Alberta, Canada (Elmworth/Wapiti, Simonette, Kaybob, Whitecourt, Edson, Rosevear, and Hanlan areas). “The Tight Gas and Duvernay area
represents an extremely important component of the Alberta natural gas business; the Duvernay and the Montney in the area present exciting opportunities
to develop and grow significant new gas and Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) production through 2020” said Mr. Bill Armstrong, P. Eng. study co-author.
The study concludes:
“The developing resource and the capacity within the existing infrastructure present opportunities with significant upside and the potential to increase the area
competitiveness in the North American Gas Market” said Mr. Bob Child, P. Eng., study co-author.
“The report is an important analysis that details the resource and infrastructure for the region from an independent and unbiased team perspective; it focuses on
optimizing capital, operating expenses, product recoveries, and cycle times as if the team owned all the resources and assets” said Mr. Bill Gwozd, P. Eng., study co-author.
With more than two dozen industry subscribers, the studies (a similar analysis for the Montney British Columbia and Alberta Tight Gas Growth area was issued in
January 2012) have great implications due to the significant opportunities presented and should be foundational to Facility Owners and Operators, Producers,
Resource Developers, Governments, and Investors that could be impacted.
