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.”
