Our business plan is to create sustainable and profitable growth in reserves, production and cash flow in the oil and natural gas industry in the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin (“WCSB”).

Chinook’s mandate  since inception has been to identify and secure a balanced portfolio of exploration and exploitation opportunities in proven areas that are characterized by competitive fiscal terms, and an abundance of opportunities.

Growth Catalyst

  • – Montney discovery at Birley/Umbach in Northeastern British Columbia

Our Focus Areas

Our focus areas include major properties at Birley/Umbach

Birley/Umbach Area – Montney

Birley/Umbach is comprised of 73 gross (62 net) drilling space units of land and includes a compressor site with a current capacity of 25 mmcf/d.

To date, Chinook has drilled 13 (11.23 net) horizontal wells in the Birley/Umbach area. All but two (2.0 net) of these wells are on-stream. The remaining two wells are expected to be on-stream late in 2017 upon the commissioning of the expansion of the facility at Birley/Umbach to 50 mmcf/d.  Chinook’s four (3.63 net) most recent Birley/Umbach wells were drilled using a ‘zipper frac’ technique on parallel well pairs. Two of the wells have approximately 1,800 metre lateral length and the other approximately 1,600 metre lateral length.  All four wells used 55 tonne fracs at 52 metre spacing.
