PEMBINA PIPELINE Permit #62701 total 12KM 

Phase IX

Phase IX will include new 6- and 16-inch pipelines debottlenecking the corridor north of Gordondale, Alberta as well as upgrades at one pump station. This expansion will see existing pipelines, which are currently batching, converted to single product lines. Once this expansion is completed, Pembina will have largely completed its objective to achieve segregated liquids transportation service for ethane-plus, propane-plus, crude and condensate across multiple pipeline systems between Gordondale, Alberta and the Edmonton, Alberta area. Phase IX also includes a pump station, in the Wapiti-to-Kakwa corridor, that is partially complete and was previously part of the Phase VII project scope. This pump station will help accommodate increased and sustained demand for NGL service also due to increased activity in the Montney.

Phase IX is anticipated to be placed into service throughout the second half of 2022, subject to regulatory and environmental approvals.

Whitecap Permit #62,704 – 10.72KM Pump station to pipeline

Smoky River Region
The properties in our Smoky River Region include Wapiti, Karr, Simonette, Kakwa and Elmworth all located southwest of Grande Prairie, Alberta. The primary reservoirs being developed are the Dunvegan, Cardium, and Montney resource play, all of which are light sweet (39° – 42° API) oil. These reservoirs are characterized by thick oil columns with significant oil in place. This area utilizes pad-based horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracturing, including extended reach horizontals that exhibit a lower decline profile than in many areas due to the significant oil in place. The Region is comprised of large-scale opportunities and significant inventory setting up Smoky River to provide material future organic growth.

The recent acquisition of Kicking Horse is a continuation of Whitecap’s long-term strategy of selectively consolidating high quality assets in our core operating areas to enhance free funds flow and return of capital to shareholders. The Kicking Horse assets are well positioned in the liquids-rich portion of the Alberta Montney, complement our existing Montney position at Karr and have significant offsetting activity. The Acquisition includes 92 (60.0 net) sections of Montney rights that are 99% operated, with an average working interest of 65%, and provide the potential for further working interest consolidation.
