Black Swan and Duvernay Enters Joint Venture
Jun 24 14
Black Swan Energy Ltd. signed a joint venture agreement to accelerate development of its Duvernay holdings in the Willesden Green area of Alberta. Black Swan says it has $500 million of equity financing provided by the Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board, KERN Partners and Warburg Pincus. The company is focused on early-entry western Canadian resource plays with significant land positions in the Montney play in northeast British Columbia and the Duvernay play in central Alberta, which are being actively developed. Under the agreement, the joint venture partner will drill and complete certain wells and contribute 50% of its land position to earn 50% of Black Swans working interest in the area. Black Swan says it will have 27,640 net acres of Duvernay rights after completing the earning. The company said it continues to control 100% of its 92,640 acres of Duvernay rights in the Edson and Pembina areas in Alberta where it is currently drilling a horizontal Duvernay well with partners. The joint venture accelerates the pace of de-risking of Duvernay assets and, at the same time, allows to concentrate efforts on very prospective liquids-rich Montney acreage in northeast.
