Calima Energy has received a permit from BC Oil and Gas Commission (OGC) to construct a production facility at its Montney pad location.
Calima owns and operates 67,900 acres of drilling and production rights in British Columbia (Calima Lands).
The facilities include tankage, electrical generation metering and a control centre. The construction design is modular, allowing for construction off-site in a controlled environment.
“While the initial approval is for the existing two liquids-rich Montney wells drilled earlier this year, it is envisaged that additional modules would be added to the pad site to accommodate a 20 well pad,” the company told the market.
The company says that the egress pipeline, which will take production from the Camlima Lands to the Tommy Lakes gathering system, has been applied for with OGC.
The pipeline is expected to accommodate up to 50 million cubic feet per day and 1,500 barrels of well head condensate.
Further condensate and natural gas liquids will be recovered from the post-production processing at Tommy Lakes and Jedney processing facility, resulting in
approximately 50 barrels of liquids recovered per million cubic feet per day of gas production.
“This is another milestone towards the completion of a field development plan for the Calima Lands and eventual FID decision. I should like to thank the team at Trialta for the timely completion of this work,” Managing Director Alan Stein said.
The company said that the in site electrical power will be generated by gas-powered turbines due to their low maintenance, long life and reduced CO2 emissions.
To ensure the facility meets the stringent emissions guidelines in Canada, an instrument air package that reduces fugitive methane emissions will be installed. The production facilities will be remote monitored allowing access to live-time data in both Calgary and Perth.
