- CSRI ended the first quarter 2017 with positive working capital and no debt.
- A resource assessment, prepared as at December 31, 2016 by GLJ Petroleum Consultants, an independent qualified reserves evaluator, of the Montney Formation on the Corporation’s Farrell Creek/Altares lands in northeastern British Columbia resulted in 9,044 Bcf (9.0 Tcf) of Total Petroleum Initially-In-Place (“TPIIP”) of shale gas being recognized on the Corporation’s Montney lands. This represents a 62% increase in TPIIP available for exploitation and development as was previously recognized in a February 2012 assessment.
- On October 27, 2016, the Corporation announced the engagement of Peters & Co. Limited as financial advisors to assist in its review of strategic alternatives to maximize the value of its Montney Formation resource base at Attachie and Farrell Creek/Altares. The process began in the first quarter 2017 and is presently underway.
