Connacher Provides Q2 2014 Operational and Capital Plan Updates, AGM Results 
and Conference Call Details 
CALGARY, July 17, 2014 /CNW/ - Connacher Oil and Gas Limited (CLL - TSX; 
"Connacher" or the "Company") provides an operational update for the second 
quarter 2014 ("Q2 2014"), a finalized 2014-2015 capital plan ("Capital Plan"), 
AGM voting results and Q2 2014 conference call details. 
Operational Update 
Based on field estimates, Connacher's Great Divide production for Q2 2014 
averaged 13,700 bbl/d. Production was two per cent higher than the prior 
quarter (Q1 2014 - 13,433 bbl/d). 
Pads 101 and 102 at Pod One were taken offline on July 3(rd) for approximately 
one day to complete tie-ins for the 9 new infill wells. Steaming began on 
infills 101-F9 and 101-F10 on July 7(th). These wells are expected to be on 
production by August. The remaining wells will be brought on sequentially in 
pairs and all of the new infill wells are expected to be on production in the 
fourth quarter. 
During the second quarter we achieved the lowest diluent blend ratio ("DBR") 
in the history of Great Divide at 14.4%. The DBR averaged 20% for 2013 and 19% 
for the first quarter of 2014. 
Capital Plan 
Following closing of the first lien financing in May 2014 the Company has 
finalized its Capital Plan, excluding maintenance capital, at $113 million. 
This includes the previously announced initial 2014 capital expenditures of 
$50 million (nine new infill wells at Pod One). The remaining $63 million will 
be spent primarily on the commercialization of the SAGD+® process at Algar to 
be on stream in 2015 and the mini‐steam expansion project at Pod One, which 
is expected to be implemented in 2015. Funding for the Capital Plan will come 
from cashflow and proceeds from the first lien term loan facility.
