Bogan Shire community projects need your vote

A number of projects in the Barwon electorate have the opportunity to receive state government funding, however, unlike most grants, their success is entirely dependent on the community's support. Two projects in the Bogan Shire have been submitted as part of the My Community Project grants program, which aims to fund projects in each NSW electorate to help improve the wellbeing of the people and communities that live there. Up to $260,000 of funding is available to each electorate, with grants of between $20,000 and $200,000 to be awarded to the projects that receive the most support via community votes. The first project nominated in the Barwon electorate is the restoration of Nyngan's historic 1924 Garford Fire Engine for permanent display and to be featured in events and processions. The fire engine was used by the Nyngan Fire Brigade from 1943 until 1963, however was damaged in the 1990 flood. The project involves re-painting the Garford engine which is expected to be co..

The project involves re-painting the Garford engine which is expected to be completed by a local auto spray painter using authentic colours, authentic tyres will be sourced from a specialist tyre dealer, the signage work will be done by a qualified sign writer using brush and paint on letter to ensure it is fitting with the original work on the engine. Currently the old Nyngan fire station in Cobar Street has been restored to house the engine, which will add another element of history to the community. The second project nominated is the rejuvenation of the Hermidale memorial park and play equipment. Work will include repairing the existing equipment and structures, purchasing and installing a play gym, installing adequate fences and gardens. The project aims to boost the community heavily impacted by drought, and will provide a safer and more enjoyable environment for families and children. Successful projects are determined through a public vote and the projects that receive the most support will receive funding. Voting closes on August 15, with successful projects to be announced from September 2019. More information on each project can be found on the My Service NSW website www.service.nsw.gov.au. People will need a MyServiceNSW Account and your Medicare card to vote. Voters need to pick between three and five projects in their electorate, arrange them in order of preference and then submit the vote. Each person can only vote once. Voting can be done online at www.service.nsw.gov.au or at your nearest Service NSW Centre. Call 13 77 88 for more information.

Calima Energy acquires Tommy Lakes facilities and direct access to major export routes in Canada

Calima Energy Ltd (ASX:CE1) recently acquired the Tommy Lakes facility, including associated pipelines and infrastructure, from Enerplus Corp (TSE:ERF).

Tommy Lakes lies immediately to the north of the Calima lands in British Columbia and saves the company (and any future partner) an $85 million investment in infrastructure.

Calima managing director Alan Stein said: “This is a significant strategic acquisition that gives the company access to markets in a very cost-efficient manner.

“With a replacement value of $85 million, the re-use of Tommy Lakes significantly reduces capital cost however, just as importantly, avoids the time involved in permitting and constructing new facilities.

“The Calima Lands are now ready for development once a funding partner is secured.”

The infrastructure acquired includes gathering pipelines, compression facilities and associated facilities capable of transporting up to 50 million cubic feet/day of gas and 1,500-2,000 barrels per day of well-head c..

“With a replacement value of $85 million, the re-use of Tommy Lakes significantly reduces capital cost however, just as importantly, avoids the time involved in permitting and constructing new facilities.

“The Calima Lands are now ready for development once a funding partner is secured.”

The infrastructure acquired includes gathering pipelines, compression facilities and associated facilities capable of transporting up to 50 million cubic feet/day of gas and 1,500-2,000 barrels per day of well-head condensate

Production start-up from existing wells could commence the first quarter 2021 subject to third party funding.

Strategic acquisition


The principal consideration for the acquisition is around $825,000 which will include the cost of shutting down the facilities and the payment of a refundable performance bond to the Oil & Gas Commission of British Columbia (OGC).

Calima has also entered into an option agreement to acquire 11 gas production wells on or before April 1, 2022 in the Tommy Lakes field.

The wells would provide the company with the option to use gas as fuel as part of the start-up sequence for the facilities, if required.

As it stands, the strategic acquisition means Calima avoids regulatory work that could otherwise take years to approve and can leave the existing facility on suspension until its ready to start production.

Pipeline and processing access


The acquisition also provides Calima cost-efficient access to the North River Midstream pipeline and Jedney processing facility.

The processing plant in turn provides immediate access to major export routes including TC Pipelines LPs (TSE:TRP) Nova gas transmission pipeline and the Alliance pipeline.

Importantly, new pipeline investment and capacity growth will allow for gas to be directed towards the Shell/Petronas LNG Canada Facility via the Canada Coastal Link pipeline and the proposed Woodside/Chevron LNG Facility at Kitimat.

Major pipelines and export routes in Canada

Condensate, gas and project economics


The company estimates around 77% of production in terms of barrels of oil equivalent (boe) from the Calima lands would be gas, and condensate would be expected to account for around 50% of production revenue from the Calima Lands.

While Calimas project economics are underpinned by condensate, the gas price offers leverage.

Canadian producers have been under pressure from low gas prices for several years, but now Western Canadian gas prices are improving as more pipeline capacity is made available.

Stein said: “With gas prices showing consistent increases over the last 6 months, development economics are showing steady improvement.”
