Learn how Encana's vision, strategy and goals are set in motion with its 2014 guidance.
Our Fort Nelson area operations are located in northeastern British Columbia in the Greater Sierra resource play. The focus in this area is on the continued development of the Jean Marie formation and the Devonian aged Horn River shales. In 2012 Encana drilled approximately six net wells in the area. The divestiture of Encana's Jean Marie natural gas assets in northeastern British Columbia closed on June 27, 2013. This transaction unlocks value from a mature asset as the company continues to develop its portfolio and diversify its production profile.
As part of our focus on contributing to sustainable communities and supporting healthy lifestyles of our employees, contractors and community members, Encana has committed to supporting the Volunteer Division of the Vancouver Sun Run in 2013.
The Vancouver Sun will be profiling the blog of Angela White, a Surface Landman for Encana in Fort Nelson, as she shares the highs and lows of training in a Northern community in the middle of winter.
Follow Angela's blog from her first early morning training adventure until race day in 13 weeks.
Our Horn River program was designed to drill long reach, multi-stage horizontal wells using resource play hubs that ultimately develop more of the resource, more efficiently, at a lower cost and all from a single surface location.
The Debolt Water Treatment Plant utilizing the Debolt formation (a deep, sub-surface aquifer containing saline, sour water) supplies water for hydraulic fracturing operations and reduces the water required from surface water sources to 10 percent.
On June 3, we participated in the Arbor Day tree planting event where trees were planted at various sites throughout the town of Fort Nelson.
We sponsored three local schools in Fort Nelson to participate in Project Webfoot, where students learn about the importance of Canada’s wetlands.
Our three main camps bring trailers full of recycling to town every three months. Local groups who are interested in sorting and making money from the pop cans and other returnable’s are contacted on a rotation basis. That equates to about $2,500 per load of cans to support local groups (like the Carlson playground, FINNS swim club, Fort Nelson High school groups) on a monthly basis.
