Phase 2 Cardium Program Update

The 13 well Willesden Green Cardium development program planned for the second half of the year is progressing as planned, with six wells rig released.

All locations are expected to be onstream before the end of the year. The Company is on target to deliver its $120 million capital program, with $75 million of the total spending planned for the second half of the year.

Hedging Program Updates

Our hedging policy is designed to provide a level of certainty to our cash flow.  While our hedging volumes have increased, we are cautious to only hedge at levels that are constructive to the business.
