Late last week, the company received its drilling license for Lodgepole 14-32-47-09W5 (WTL W.I. 100%), its first step-out location in the Lodgepole pool (Nisku TT pool). The drilling rig has moved from Paddy Creek 6-13 to the 14-32 location and was slated to spud on Thursday. After drilling 14-32, the rig is expected to move to the second step-out location at 16-32-47-9W5 (WTL W.I. 100%). Both wells are located within a mile of the West's Paddy Creek battery satellite. If successful, they could be tied-in and on production in Q4.
On June 30, West closed its sale of non-core gas assets in northwest Alberta for proceeds of $10.3 million. The proceeds were applied to the company's bank loan. West's bank lending facility remains unchanged at $55 million. The company anticipates spending $23 million on Nisku drilling, well completions, and tie-ins and waterflood injection projects in Q3.
