Quirk Creek, Caledonian’s Primary Asset, Comprises 14 Natural Gas Wells, 100 Pipeline-Miles and Processing Facilities
Los Angeles Ca , July 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Black Rock Petroleum Company (OTC: BKRP), a Nevada corporation (“Black Rock”), announced today it has entered an agreement to acquire Caledonian Midstream Corporation (“Caledonian”) an Alberta-based company and the owner/ operator of 14 producing liquids-rich natural gas wells at Quirk Creek, for a combination of cash and stock. Caledonian will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Black Rock upon completion of the transaction.
Caledonian’s primary asset is the Quirk Creek natural gas field in Millarville, Alberta. First discovered by Imperial Oil in 1970, today Quirk Creek comprises 14 producing wells, 65 miles of gathering pipeline and a licensed sour-gas processing facility.
Raw production at Quirk Creek has recently averaged approximately 12 MMcf/d, with natural gas sales averaging approximately 8.5 MMcf/d, approximately 475 barrels of natural gas liquids and 60 tonnes of molten sulphur per day. Total remaining recoverable natural gas associated with the Quirk Field are estimated at 49 Bcf on a proved plus probable producing basis.
The Quirk Creek plant is connected to the Plains Midstream Pipeline by a company-owned, 34-mile pipeline capable of transporting natural gas to market in Fort Saskatchewan Alberta, as well as the TC Energy Gas Transmission Pipeline, with routing through Southern Alberta, the interior of British Columbia and the Western United States, terminating in the Sacramento/San Francisco.
Zoltan Nagy, Chief Executive Officer of Black Rock, commented on the announcement, “Caledonian Midstream is a great fit for Black Rock. Demand for natural gas continues to grow, in Alberta and across North America, and the Quirk Creek property is perfectly situated to service those markets. Current production levels are good, but our engineers have looked at the property’s historical production records and analysed recent reserve evaluations, and I am confident we have the expertise, technology and resources to materially increase production and, in turn, the cash flow of the site.”
