Canada - Harmattan

TransGlobe to re-enter Canada through acquisition of the Harmattan property in central Alberta;
Acquisition expected to close in late December 2016

Harmattan is located approximately 80 kilometres north of Calgary, Alberta.  This property produces oil and associated natural gas from the Cardium and Viking zones and liquids-rich natural gas from zones in the Lower Mannville and Rock Creek formations at vertical depths of 1,200 to 2,600 metres. The Harmattan property interests to be acquired averaged 3,104 boepd for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, consisting of 42% natural gas, 21% light oil and condensate and 37% natural gas liquids.  The majority (88%) of the production from the area will be operated by TransGlobe.  TransGlobe will own a 100% working interest in a large oil battery and a compressor station where a majority of oil volumes are handled.  All gas is delivered to a third party non-operated gas plant for processing. 

As at September 30, 2016, the Harmattan property represented 45,414 gross (38,408 net) acres of developed land and 65,710 gross (58,452 net) acres of undeveloped land.


• Land Position:  >95,000 net acres (>110,000 gross acres) 
• Production: ~3,100 Boepd1 (~57% liquids-weighted)
• 2P Reserves: 21.3 MMBoe2  (62.9% liquids-weighted)
• 45 net proved + probable horizontal locations assigned with an additional 100+ net horizontal locations identified by management.2, 3


Canadian Cardium Light Oil and Liquids-Rich Gas Production
• The prolific Cardium formation has produced hydrocarbons in central Alberta for over 60 years; there are currently ~10,000 producing wells (of which ~3,900 are horizontal wells)4
• Stable geopolitical environment 
• Favorable royalty and tax structure in current low price environment
• Low historical operating costs (<$8.00/boe Cdn) 
• High quality light oil and liquids yielding attractive netbacks


Acquisition Adds Low-Risk Development Upside
• Well defined Cardium and Ellerslie horizontal drilling locations provide for significant production and cash flow growth
• Access to surplus infrastructure capacity to significantly grow production
• Production decline rate of ~12% over the past 12 months provides solid platform for growth5
