Velvet is an organic growth company. We apply best-in-class geoscience and commercial skill to build large and contiguous tracts of land in, and adjacent to, oil-window source rocks. State-of-the-art prospecting, drilling, completions, and production methods allow us to generate top decile economic returns.
Velvet’s operations are focused in the liquids rich window of the Deep Basin of Alberta. The Company produces 17,000 boe/d from the liquids rich Ellerslie formation which spans from West Pembina to Whitecourt. Velvet has over 15 years of Ellerslie and stack development inventory to continue to sustain or grow this high rate of return asset.
The Company recently commenced production in the black oil window of the Montney in the Gold Creek area of northwest Alberta. Velvet controls over 200 net sections of land at Gold Creek, where it produces 4,000 boe/d. The company also has a portfolio of early phase exploration lands, targeting oil and liquids rich prospects in its existing areas of operations.
