Altima Resources (ARH) acquired and transferred a key pipeline for its core oil-producing area of Red Earth, Alberta.

The 9.2 kilometres pipeline ties the central battery at 3-8-96-5 W5M in the Blue Sky Resources processing facility at 3-11-96-6 W5M.

Altima holds an average working 81 per cent in seven wells in the North Panny Field.

These wells are long-life assets with a combined production of around 115 bopd.

The company has started placing these wells back into production, which is connected to the Altima 8-3 central battery and flows through the pipeline to the 3-11 Blue Sky processing facility and market hub.

The new pipeline will give the company sustainable, year-round production capability from the North Panny Field.

DeVries commented, “We are very encouraged in this first step towards creating multiple long-term, sustainable, economic production.”

This will significantly reduce the company’s operating costs by acquiring the pipeline.

Altima will complete an evaluation for on-stream potential with five additional wells also located in North Panny Field to determine the feasibility of working over.

As for the expansion wells, they are expected to have a combined initial production of approximately 40 bopd.

Also, one of the expansion wells is slotted as a potential water disposal well to decrease operation costs further.

Altima Resources engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of petroleum and natural gas properties in Canada.
