  • admin 

Disclaimer: The information and data provided in this analysis are sourced from publicly accessible resources and do not include privately-held facilities or undisclosed data. As a result, the figures and trends discussed within this analysis may not encompass the complete landscape of the Canadian energy industry. Please note that the term “conventional” in this context refers to all facility subtypes excluding SAGD (Steam-Assisted Gravity Drainage) and bitumen facilities.

Please note that all boe conversions presented in this analysis are calculated using a standard conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet (Mcf) of natural gas to one barrel (Bbl) of oil. For liquid measurements, a conversion factor of 1 m3 = 6.2898 bbl is applied. Furthermore, monthly conversions utilize a factor of 30.5 days for consistency.

Examining Alberta’s Top Conventional Oil Facilities: TORXEN ENERGY LTD. Emerges as the Front-runner

The Canadian oil industry has experienced consistent growth, with February 2023 proving to be no exception. In Alberta, the province’s top-producing conventional facilities showcased remarkable output, with TORXEN ENERGY LTD.’s Alderson West 6-2-16-15 facility leading the way in oil production, achieving an impressive 10,067 boe/day. Other prominent players in the industry include HAMMERHEAD RESOURCES INC., whose CIOC Karr 01-16-065-03W600 facility produced 9,331 boe/day, and ASPENLEAF ENERGY LIMITED, with their MEC 10-22-50-26 Crude Oil Battery generating 6,993 boe/day. These leading facilities significantly contribute to Alberta’s and Canada’s energy landscape and propel the industry forward.

Water and Gas Production: Two Integral Components of the Energy Sector with Diverse Applications

The Canadian energy sector is not only defined by oil production; water and gas production also play critical roles in the industry. Water is an essential resource in various stages of oil and gas extraction processes, including drilling, hydraulic fracturing, and enhanced oil recovery. Additionally, it serves as a vital component in the maintenance of pressure and temperature control in the production process.

CONIFER ENERGY INC.’s Redwater 8-29-57-21W4 facility serves as a prime example of water production, with an extraordinary output of 514,814 boe/day. This high volume of water produced demonstrates the facility’s capacity to support the energy sector’s diverse needs and applications.

As for gas production, natural gas is a versatile and increasingly popular energy source, used for electricity generation, heating, and as a raw material in various industrial processes. HAMMERHEAD RESOURCES INC.’s CIOC Karr 01-16-065-03W600 facility takes the lead within the top 10 in this area, outputting 10,834 boe/day. The significant gas production at this facility highlights the growing demand for natural gas and its importance within the Canadian energy industry.
