Montney land sales 2017 økte kraftig

Alberta og BC land sales for 2017 endte på nesten $800 mill, en god økning i forhold til 2016 hvor det for Alberta var $217 mill og i 2015 hvor salget var $375 mill.

Montney acres burde med det ha en høyere verdi og markedet priser disse høyere.

Verdiene øker for QEC.

Montney land sales


Interest in the Montney and Duvernay plays in B.C. and Alberta powered a near $800-million resurgence in oil and gas land sales in 2017.

Spending in B.C. and Alberta hit $793.93 million last year, the Daily Oil Bulletin reports, up fourfold with producers locking up 1.77 million hectares of land for exploration and development.

That's up from a paltry $217.51 million in spending in 2016, and $375.78 million in 2015, according to the Bulletin.

Spending was largely concentrated in Alberta, which ended the year with $556.39 million in bids, much of that spent on land in the East Shale Basin Duvernay, according to the Bulletin.

In B.C., spending was up to $173.25 million in 2017 after plunging to a record low of just $15.1 million in 2016.

Two sales were largely responsible for the large jump in the province, which started the year with a bang when its first land sale of 2017 produced $39.62 million in bonus bids. That sale was driven by a $35.13-million licence in Northeast B.C. prospective for the Montney east of Dawson Creek.

Meanwhile, a large $77-million parcel highlighted the province's July sale.

That high-priced drilling licence at Inga east of the Montney production at Altares, was picked up by Scott Land & Lease Ltd., which paid an average price of $13,893.90 per hectare for the 5,542-hectare parcel.

Meanwhile, spending in Saskatchewan totalled $62.83 million in 2017. That's up from $53.4 million in 2016. In Manitoba, spending hit $1.4 million last year, up from $262,000 in 2016.

Scott Land & Lease Ltd. was the top buyer in 2017, according to the Bulletin, acquiring 600,797 hectares for $357.39 million.
