Questerre Falls on Delay in Quebec Well Completion

(Corrects to identify operator in third paragraph.)

Oct. 15 (Bloomberg) -- Questerre Energy Corp. fell the most in two weeks after the company delayed a plan for two test wells in Quebec.

Questerre, based in Calgary, dropped 28 cents, or 14.4 percent, to C$1.67 in Toronto today.

The company and operator Talisman Energy Inc. delayed a plan for two shale-gas test wells because of the cost of hiring a crew in Quebec, Anela Dido, a Questerre spokeswoman, said by phone today.

“The operator feels that it’s more cost-efficient to complete them in the spring rather than in the fall,” Dido said.

The delay was reported earlier today by the Globe and Mail. Quebec residents have expressed concerns in public hearings that shale-gas drilling may affect water supplies, the Globe and Mail reported.
