Western Canada Pipeline Construction Detail
Pipeline permits include gathering or transport pipelines of a liquid, gas or oil through a system of pipes. In addition to these main types of pipelines, there are also four other sub-categories of pipelines: Gathering Lines, Feeder Lines, Transmission Pipelines and Distribution Pipelines. The permits represent all types of pipelines. This section shows pipeline permits that have a new construction component. (Pipeline Construction Western Canada Jan 08, 2022 report date )
Petroleum pipelines transport oil, oil products and natural gas. In addition to these two main types of pipelines, there are also four other sub-categories of pipelines: Gathering Lines, Feeder Lines, Transmission Pipelines and Distribution Pipelines. The permits represent all types of pipelines.

Pipeline Project Details
CNRL Permit#41,830 total 1.48KM Battery to battery
Primrose and Wolf Lake (PAW) Project. The PAW Project consists of thermal in situ oil sands developments which include the Wolf Lake CPF and field production facilities (Townships 65 and 66, Ranges 5 and 6, W4M); the Primrose South and North Steam areas (Townships 67 and 68, Ranges 4 and 5, W4M, which includes the Primrose South and North steam plants and field production facilities) and the Primrose East area (Townships 67 and 68, Ranges 2 and 3, W4M), which includes the Primrose East steam plant, the Burnt Lake Pilot Plant and field production facilities (all located entirely within the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range).
Clearwater formation at Canadian Natural’s Wolf Lake and Primrose (North, South, and East) fields. In the Cold Lake deposits, our Primrose operations currently produce from the Clearwater reservoir using the cyclic steam stimulation (CSS) process. CSS uses a single well bore to inject and produce steam. This technology has been historically applied to reservoirs that have barriers to vertical flow. The production peaks and troughs at Primrose are a reflection of the cyclic steam process – the peaks are associated with production cycles from newer, less mature wells and the troughs are associated with production cycles from the more mature areas in the field.
SPUR PETROLEUM LTD. Permit#62,248 – 4.56KM Battery to pipeline
Spur Petroleum (Spur) is a privately owned oil and natural gas company based in Calgary, Alberta and is not listed on any public stock exchange. Our operations are focused in Western Canada. Spur has a balanced oil and natural gas asset base with a growing inventory of low cost, low risk opportunities.
Clearwater cold flow heavy oil play at Marten Hills and Nipisi has gone from interesting land sales to producing over 14,000 bopd. Over 6 mmbo have been produced to mid-July 2019. The main players are Spur and Deltastream, with Highwood, Cenovus and CNRL
Located roughly between Alberta’s Nipisi Lake and an area called Marten Hills, the drilling rights going for sale fall within the Clearwater shale and sandstone formation, with pockets of oil 600 to 700 metres below the ground
TORXEN RESOURCES LTD. Permit #50,345 – 2.57KM Battery to pipeline
Torxen is a private exploration and production company focused on the development and optimization of conventional oil and gas assets in Southern Alberta. The Torxen team has a proven track-record operating upstream oil and gas properties in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin and is committed to high standards of safety, environmental responsibility and stakeholder relationships.
Ellerslie Member represents the lower part of the Mannville Group in southern and central Alberta. It is conformably overlain by the Ostracod Beds of the Manville Group and rests unconformably on Paleozoic strata such as the Banff Formation or Pekisko Formation, often separated by a Detrital Zone.
On 25 September 2017, Cenovus announced the sale of its Suffield and Alderson assets to International Petroleum Corp. (IPC) for cash proceeds of Cdn$512 million (US$415 million). The Suffield and Alderson assets are located in southern Alberta and include 800,000 net acres of shallow natural gas rights and 100,000 net acres of oil rights. The assets are currently producing approximately 7,000 b/d of oil and 102 mmcfd of natural gas, for a total of 24,000 boe/d (71% gas).
Whitecap Resources Inc. Permit #62,836 – Well to pipeline – 2.79KM
Whitecap Resources is a Canadian public oil company based in Calgary, Alberta, with operations in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. Whitecap is an oil weighted growth company that pays a monthly cash dividend to its shareholders while being recognized for storing more CO2 annually than we emit corporately.
Valhalla is Whitecap’s original asset area. It is underpinned by the conventional Montney light oil waterflood pool that continues to outperform our original reserves estimates. In addition, we are actively exploiting Valhalla’s ideally situated infrastructure by expanding our presence in the area through the Charlie Lake and Montney oil resource plays. Boundary Lake is located primarily in northeast British Columbia on the Alberta/British Columbia border, just east of Fort St. John, and is characterized by low base declines, low sustaining capital and a predictable production base within an active waterflood. The key characteristics of this legacy oil pool are high operated working interest, and light 35° API oil. Asset enhancement is on-going with waterflood optimization initiatives and the optimal implementation of horizontal wells. Development and completion design reviews are continually ongoing to further unlock additional resource value.
