Puts Restricted Production Back Online

With recent improvement in oil prices, Gear has initiated a gradual production re-start across the majority of the asset base. After initiating shut ins through April, corporate production was restricted by almost 80% in May with approximately 1,300 boe/d delivered to market.

Current estimates are for June production to be approximately 3,700 boe/d, July to be approximately 5,000 boe/d and August to be approximately 6,000 boe/d.

With minimal capital expenditures currently forecast for the remainder of 2020, production is expected to decline slightly through to December, providing an annual average of 5,200 – 5,300 boe/d. (57% Heavy Oil, 28% Light & Medium Oil, 3% NGL’s, and 12% Gas)
