  • CSRI ended the year with a strong working capital position and no debt.
  • Despite difficult equity markets, in December 2015 and January 2016 the Corporation raised a total of $3.5 million of equity capital to drill, in the first quarter 2016, a 100% working interest vertical stratigraphic test well at c-69-H/94-B-1 in West Farrell Creek for land retention and resource delineation, and for general corporate purposes.
  • The c-69-H/94-B-1 well was successfully drilled and cased, and was rig released on March 6, 2016 at a final total depth of 2,762 metres. The tenure on 8.35 sections of lands, CSRI (8 sections at 100%) and joint venture (1 section at 35%), has been extended for an additional 10 years. While drilling through the Doig and Montney formations, extremely high pressures were encountered. Although validation through further testing will be required, the presence of these higher pressures could result in a larger natural gas resource in place than currently recognized on CSRI's 100% working interest lands. The proximity of this land base to the Spectra Energy pipeline and existing, expandable infrastructure has the potential to match some of the most prolific natural gas production in the region.
  • On March 31, 2016, the Corporation and its joint venture partner shut in their natural gas production at Farrell Creek. The continued deterioration in North American natural gas prices accompanied by the further discounted price experienced by producers in northeastern British Columbia producing into the Spectra Energy pipeline (in March 2016, natural gas spot prices at Station 2 averaged $0.89 per Mcf) has resulted in a negative netback on the joint venture natural gas production at Farrell Creek. The natural gas processing facility and associated wells will be reactivated once natural gas prices return to a profitable situation.
  • Management and the Board of Directors of CSRI are continuing to focus on and pursue strategic alternatives for the Corporation. These include but are not limited to considering alternative financing methods and meeting with potential acquirers or merger partners.
