Tamarack Valley Energy Ltd. Announces Wilson Creek Operations Update
Jan 2 15
Tamarack Valley Energy Ltd. announced that a successful second half 2014 drilling program in the Wilson Creek area contributed to a record exit production rate averaging approximately 9,700 boe/d (based on field estimates) during the last 14 days of December, 2014, exceeding its exit production target of 9,500 boe/d. All 10.9 net wells drilled in the fourth quarter were brought on production at various times during December, 2014. The company, based on field estimates, averaged approximately 8,500 boe/d during the month of December, 2014 with an oil and natural gas liquids weighting of approximately 63%. Tamarack's operated oil battery located in the Wilson Creek area of Alberta, had a fire-tube failure in the treater, early yesterday, causing a small fire that was extinguished within hours. As a result, capacity at this oil battery will be temporarily curtailed. The Company expects the oil battery to be shut down for three days at which point it is expected the facility will be able to run at approximately 75% of capacity until final repairs can be completed later in the month. Prior to the fire-tube failure, the oil battery was processing 3,700 to 3,800 bbls/d of oil and Tamarack was expecting to average approximately 9,400 to 9,500 boe/d in January, 2015, from the wells that were on production at the end of 2014. The Company will provide an update of the expected impact of this curtailment to first quarter production average, when it disseminates its 2015 guidance later in January, 2015. Tamarack recently took over operation of this oil battery as part of the Wilson Creek acquisition which closed on September 30, 2014. During the fourth quarter, Tamarack drilled 13 (10.9 net) Cardium wells in the Wilson Creek/Alder Flats area, which is 2.0 net wells less than originally planned due to continual declining commodity prices. The Company is currently finalizing its 2015 capital expenditure plan that will be disseminated after receiving Board approval, expected later in January, 2015. Tamarack will base its 2015 capital expenditure plan using strip commodity prices which are currently approximately USD 55.00/bbl for WTI and USD 2.80/GJ at AECO. Tamarack currently does not have any drilling or completion operations underway.

Tamarack Valley Energy Ltd. Announces Increased Drilling Activity and Additions to Drilling Inventory
Oct 14 14
Tamarack Valley Energy Ltd. announced an operational update with the following highlights: record current production rate of 7,400 boe/d, based on field estimates, excluding 550 boe/d of shut-in production associated with TransCanada Pipeline maintenance and third party plant turnarounds. Record drilling activity in the Wilson Creek area. The company currently has three drilling rigs active with a fourth rig expected by the end of the month. A new farm-in agreement with two industry majors create a 10.5 (9.9 net) section contiguous land block in the Alder Flats area adding 26.6 net one-mile equivalent drilling locations. Non-core Queensdale property disposition for proceeds of $4.3 million. Expansion of the company's fourth core area light oil play to 40 net contiguous sections. Tamarack currently has three drilling rigs active in the Wilson Creek area of Alberta. Two operated rigs are currently drilling wells on the Wilson Creek lands acquired on September 30, 2014, from Suncor Energy. The company expects these two rigs to drill continuously in Wilson Creek on the acquired lands until late in the fourth quarter. A non-operated rig is also active drilling the first of a four well program on the same pad in Wilson Creek on 50% working interest lands. The fourth rig is expected to begin drilling late in October, focusing on the final commitment well for 2014 on the farm-in with an industry major and drilling in Alder Flats. To date in 2014, Tamarack has drilled 11 (10 net) wells in the Wilson Creek area with 6 net wells currently shut-in awaiting tie-ins to the recently purchased Suncor Energy infrastructure. Tamarack has succeeded in reducing drilling times by 25% during the recent drilling program, with a record well being drilled in 8.5 days from spud to rig release. The company is very encouraged by these drilling cost reductions and expects to be able to duplicate this result with pad program drilling on the contiguous Wilson Creek land block. Further cost reductions are also being realized by the addition of owned infrastructure acquired with the Wilson Creek asset. The company expects to reduce well equipping costs by approximately $300,000 per well, by tying in wells into existing owned infrastructure rather than equipping them as single-well batteries. All of these capital reductions will enable the company to continue to achieve 12 to 14 month payouts on Cardium drills despite the recent reduction of crude oil prices. Drilling inventory additions: subsequent to the third quarter, the company has continued to consolidate working interests in the Wilson Creek /Alder Flats area. The company agreed to terms with two industry majors and added 3 minor land parcels to assemble a contiguous 10.5 section land block in the Alder Flats area directly offsetting the 10-33 Alder Flats well brought on production in the first quarter of 2014. Through the consolidation of the Alder Flats land block, the company added 28 (26.6 net) one mile equivalent low-risk drilling locations. A development plan for this area is being assembled and will be disseminated when the company has finalized its 2015 budget. During 2014, Tamarack has entered into or agreed to terms on 20 total tuck-in deals, adding a total of 35.88 (16.93 net) sections of undeveloped land in the greater Pembina area of Alberta. These deals have resulted in the addition of 48.9 net Cardium horizontal drilling locations to its inventory which is expected to more than replace 2014's Cardium drilling activity. This is in addition to the 47.3 net Cardium locations the company recently added as a result of the Wilson Creek acquisition. Tamarack has also added 17 net sections of land to the existing 23 net sections already assembled on the company's fourth light oil resource play. Although the location of this play has not yet been disclosed for competitive reasons, the play is expected to be de-risked in 2015.
