During the first half of 2014 the Company drilled 4.0 gross (4.0 net) wells in South Willesden Green; however, third party facility constraints only allowed full production from these wells as of
The wells were drilled with 1 mile laterals, 18 stage open hole completions using slick water frack's and 540 tonnes of sand per well with resin coated sand tailed into each stage to reduce crushing. Average cost per well to drill and complete was
The internal type curve IP-30 is 190 boe/d (75% Oil and NGL's). No further Cardium wells are planned in this area by the Company this year. In South Ferrier, Yangarra continued its strategy of drilling where it has gas processing capacity (100% owned

The average IP-30 for the three wells was 367 boe/d (60% Oil and NGL's). The IP-30 on the internal type curve is 321 boe/d (75% Oil and NGL's). Yangarra's
In Central Willesden Green, the Company drilled a total of 4 gross (3.9 net) wells during the first half of 2014, utilizing the normal two well pad strategy. Two of the wells were on-stream at the end of March and two were on-stream in July.
The first pair were completed with 18 stage fracks and the second pair with 24 stage fracks using a zipper approach of alternating stages between the two wells on the pad. Due to screen out, only 12 stages in each of the second pad wells were zipper fracked and the balance of the stages were performed sequentially.
At this point it is too early to determine if the incremental stages or the zipper frack will result in a material improvement to overall well economics. Average cost per well to drill and complete was
Due to mono-bore drilling, the size of the tubing is limited to 2 3/8 and consequently the size of the bottom hole pump ('BHP') is limited to 150 bbl/d. Fluid levels are still very high on all four wells and as a result the Company expects shallower declines than normal. These wells produce into the Company facility (50% WI) at 2-4-42-7W5 with the liquids rich natural gas then sent to
In North Willesden Green, Yangarra participated in 6.0 gross (1.0 net) wells during the first half of 2014 with the wells currently on test and expected to be on-stream shortly. Yangarra plans to drill 4 gross (2.5 net) additional wells in the area in the second half of 2014.
The Company is also participating in the construction of a 50.0 mmcf/d compression facility (5.54 % working interest) which is scheduled to be commissioned in October of 2014. Two of the planned wells will produce into the new facility and two will produce into an existing third party facility.
The Company commenced drilling on a two well pad targeting the Glauconite oil window in the

South Block 7 sections (7 net)
The South block has been reviewed by the Company and delineated by several horizontal wells drilled by senior operators immediately adjacent to the Company's acreage. The Company has estimated a net pay of 35 meters, in an over-pressured reservoir and liquids rich fairway. The Company estimates that OGIP ('Original Gas in Place') for this block ranges between 70 and 100 Bcf per section together with significant condensate and NGL volumes.
The Company expects second half production of 3,900 boe/d and cash flow of
Future Drilling Inventory and Well Economics
The Company revised its future drilling inventory in the Cardium and Glauconite to account for recent property acquisitions.
