Cardium Shale - Devon Energy (DVN) Hits Oil in Canada

November 6, 2011 - Devon Energy (DVN) has released an update on drilling in the Cardium Shale located in Canada. The Cardium Shale is an emerging oil shale play which we will start to hear more about in the coming years, especially if oil prices hit record highs.

Cardium Shale wells produce 770 BOE per day

"Also in Canada, Devon completed 19 exploration wells targeting oil and liquids-rich opportunities across its more than 4 million net acres in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin. The company tied in 10 of these wells to production in the third quarter. This activity was highlighted by results in the Ferrier area where the company commenced production on three Cardium wells with initial production averaging 770 Boe per day per well."
