A Game-Changing Resource
Our Dilly Creek shale gas operation is located in northeastern British Columbia, Canada.
The advancement of drilling technology has enabled the cost-effective recovery of shale gas – a game-changing resource for the world’s energy supply. Shale gas, which is found in abundance throughout many continents, is an affordable, clean burning fuel.
There are a number of benefits to shale gas production:
- The vast resource can be developed in small stages, which means we can control the pace of development and match production with economic conditions and market demand
- A reduced surface footprint as multiple wells can be drilled from a single pad
- Communities realize economic benefits from investment in infrastructure and the hiring of local people
The advancement of drilling technologies means shale gas is now readily available and affordable – making it a clear choice for establishing a secure energy future. And the advancement of drilling technology, combined with ongoing research and development, allows this energy source to be developed safely and with environmental care.
Responsible Development of Shale Gas
Our focus on operational excellence has built our reputation as a leader in shale gas development. We work to reduce our impact on the environment. We are finding ways to reduce our use of fresh water, minimizing our operational footprint and working with other companies to fund research into new technologies. We also work to ensure the communities where we operate receive the benefits from development like local hiring and community investment, and maintain high safety standards and practices.
We’re driving down operating costs and increasing efficiency – a critical element of delivering gas to markets given current commodity pricing. Importantly, we’ve made these strides while also maintaining our high standard for safety and environmental responsibility.
