The agreement has an initial term of five years with firm capacity of 20.0 Mmcf/d and is expected to commence in Q2 2019, increasing to 25.0 Mmcf/d twelve months after plant start-up and to 30.0 Mmcf/d eighteen months after plant start-up. Blackbird said that the agreement was signed with Tidewater Midstream and Infrastructure Ltd.

“The Tidewater gas processing facility will have the benefits of deep cut capability which will allow Blackbird to realize premium pricing for NGLs as well as a solution for gas storage and fuel gas needs,” said Blackbird.

Operations

Blackbird invested $78.3 million during the year ended July 31, 2017, drilling 10 gross (6.2 net) wells, completing 7 gross (4.0 net) wells, recompleting 1 gross (1.0 net) well, bringing 4 gross (4.0 net) wells on production and constructing/commissioning its Pipestone/Elmworth facility.

The company drilled a combination of wells which further developed its western acreage located south of the Wapiti River, while delineating its eastern acreage south of the Wapiti River. Results from Blackbird’s eastern lands have encouraged management to proceed with surveying for its eastern gathering system, to facilitate tie-in of pads in this area. The company anticipates construction of the eastern gathering system to commence and be completed during the second half of fiscal 2018.

Blackbird recently drilled and cased the 6-33-71-7W6 (surface location) Upper Montney well, the company’s first well located to the north of the Wapiti River. Through continued drilling optimization, Blackbird further reduced its drilling days on the 6-33-71-7W6, making it the fastest well in the company’s history to date. Blackbird expects to complete the well in December, 2017.
