Completed successful eleven-well summer drilling program and finished battery upgrades at the Atlee Buffalo F pool facility.

CORPORATE UPDATE

Since securing a five year term loan in September 2017, Hemisphere has drilled 20 new wells in the Atlee Buffalo area including 14 wells drilled in 2018. Of these, five wells have been converted to water injectors, and are either now injecting or have recently obtained injection approval from the AER. Based on field estimates, production over the first half of November was approximately 1500 boe/d (97 percent oil), which is more than double the production as compared to Hemisphere’s average daily production during the third quarter of 2017.

With the price of Canadian crude oil dropping dramatically in recent weeks, Hemisphere is heavily focused on reducing operating costs, including those associated with optimization projects that could increase production further. Hemisphere will instead focus in the near-term on augmenting water injection in order to continue to re-energize the reservoirs and minimizing costs associated with winter weather conditions.
