• Painted Pony Petroleum has announced a discovery in the middle Montney interval of northeast British Columbia. The company holds a 20% interest in the discovery well with a capability to flow at approximately 7.5 mmcfpd. The middle Montney, present across Painted Pony's entire Montney land base, had not previously been tested horizontally in the region.  
  • Cinch Energy has participated in three Montney horizontal wells in 2010, and plans to drill a total of 12 wells in the region by early 2011. Cinch reports that the drilling and completion results for these wells have been better than expected. The company is also planning to develop gas processing infrastructure with a capacity of 45 mmcfpd for the Dawson area.
