Tourmaline Oil Corp. has successfully commissioned two new gas facilities, the Musreau Alberta and Doe B.C. 50 mmcfpd plant expansions, last week.
With the start up of the two projects, daily production has reached a record 136,000 boepd. The Doe B.C. facility start-up has allowed for a 20 mmcfpd net production increase thus far, with a further 30 mmcfpd to be realized in mid-November with the start-up of the associated Sunrise 15-34 compression expansion.
Musreau and Doe are the second and third of the five new facilities coming on-stream during the fourth quarter of 2014. The new Spirit River AB gas plant start-up in November and the Wild River AB plant expansion in December will result in the planned 2014 production exit volumes of 150,000 - 155,000 boepd or greater. The Company is currently anticipating average production of 164,500 boepd for 2015.
