Shell outlines number of wells in Canada ‘shales’

Royal Dutch Shell plc has approximately 1,200 mineral leases with over 1.7 million net mineral acres (2017: 2.6 million revised to 2.1 million).

During the year, the company relinquished 0.5 million net mineral acres. Its position is primarily in the Duvernay play in Alberta and the Montney play in British Columbia. Activity includes drill-to-fill of its existing infrastructure and an investment focus on liquids-rich shale acreage.

In 2018, the company drilled 70 wells. “We have interests in 937 productive wells. We operate four natural gas processing and extraction plants in Alberta and four natural gas processing plants in British Columbia. With the announcement of the FID for LNG Canada in 2018, our Groundbirch asset is positioned as a possible feedstock to the project,” Shell stated in its annual report.
