Encana increases production in Montney shale drilling program

Michael McAllister, the company’s Chief Operating Officer says, by using what he calls somewhat of game changer in the Montney, Encana has significantly increased fracture intensity, cut inner frac-spacing in half, and kept sand concentration the same. 

Encana holds nearly 600 thousand net acres in the Montney shale formation, which covers an area in both Northeast B.C. and Northwest Alberta. 

This year its plans call for accelerating development of the oil and liquids-rich portions of the formation and eight rigs are expected to drill 80 to 85 net wells.
