Canbriam Energy acquires British Columbia assets of Northpoint Resources

Canbriam Energy Inc. has purchased the British Columbia assets of Northpoint Resources Ltd. on October 11, 2016 through the court appointed receiver for cash consideration of $7.5 million.  

The company successfully bid to purchase all BC assets and properties of Northpoint Resources Ltd., which entered receivership in May 2016. The assets purchased include non-Montney natural gas production, reserves and related infrastructure upon or adjacent to Canbriam's existing land base.  Canbriam intends to utilize existing pipeline infrastructure obtained through the acquisition to support its liquids takeaway strategy.

"This acquisition supports our plan to eliminate trucking of natural gas liquids in 2017," said the company’s president and CEO Paul Myers. "Utilizing the existing pipeline infrastructure of Northpoint will eliminate the need to build a liquids pipeline across the Halfway River."

As part of the acquisition, Canbriam will produce approximately five million cubic feet per day of sweet natural gas from five gross wells currently producing from the Gething formation. This production is expected to be processed through existing Canbriam facilities. Canbriam also plans to immediately suspend all production from sour gas zones and has no plans to further delineate any non-Montney zones.
