Montney Shale Formation Update: British Columbia Canada

By Tim -

Canadian Spirit Resources Inc. (CSPUF.PK) has recently updated shareholders on the Montney Shale located in British Columbia, Canada.

The joint venture increased its Montney rights from 47 sections to 51 sections (gross). CSRI now has approximately 30 net sections of Montney rights in the Farrell Creek area of northeastern British Columbia.

The Operator, Canbriam Energy BC Partnership ("Canbriam"), continues to progress with the $49.0 million (gross) capital program for 2010.

The c-A48-I well was stimulated in the lower portion of the Montney Formation. With only two stages flowing, the well had an initial production rate of 3.5 mmcf/d, and a stabilized rate of 2.0 mmcf/d over a seven day period.

An additional upper Montney horizontal leg will also be drilled and completed from the existing wellbore at c-A48-I by year-end.

The first of two horizontal wells targeting the upper portion of the Montney Formation has been drilled and cased from the c-18-I pad. A second well, from the same pad, is currently being drilled. It is expected that this second well will be drilled and cased by the end of September, with both wells to be stimulated in October.

A gas facility is expected to be commissioned during the fourth quarter of 2010. It will have an initial capacity of 10 mmcf/d and will be scalable to 50 mmcf/d.
