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 Energy Operations
Velvet’s operations are focused in the light oil window of the Montney in Alberta and northeast B.C. and in the liquids rich window of the Deep Basin of Alberta. The Company produces 14,000 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 has drilled 26 gross/net wells in the black oil window of the Montney in the Karr/Gold Creek area of northwest Alberta. With the acquisition of Iron Bridge Resources Inc. in 2018, Velvet now controls 230 net sections of land at Karr/Gold Creek, where it produces 17,000 boe/d. The company also has a portfolio of early phase exploration lands, targeting Montney light oil at Pouce and Flatrock, B.C. Two wells were drilled at Pouce in 2018, with one well tied in during September last year.
