SW SK

Our Southwest Saskatchewan “SW SK” Business Unit’s assets are concentrated west of Swift Current, Saskatchewan and are characterized by predictable low base decline and medium crude oil (18 - 26° API) production. This asset was incorporated into the Whitecap portfolio opportunistically as an acquisition in 2016 and continues to generate significant free funds flow. Multiple active waterfloods, as well as three established alkaline, surfactant, and polymer "ASP" floods, are sustaining the area with 92% of production coming from enhanced recovery. Additional waterflood and ASP potential exists and will be part of our ongoing enhanced oil recovery "EOR" development programs. The primary formations being targeted in the area are the Atlas, Success, Roseray, and Shaunavon. New areas and pools within the existing SW SK land base are continually being pursued. These properties had not seen significant development prior to Whitecap, and we combine horizontal wells, multi-stage frac technology, and conventional production and EOR optimization efforts to maximize production and oil recovery from these pools
