THE COMPANY Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta and with operations near Fort St. John, British Columbia, Pacific Canbriam Energy Limited (“PCE”) is committed to our 5Cs business philosophy of creating benefits for our Community, Country, Climate, Customer, and Company.
PCE believes that the quality of its resource is a strategic asset that differentiates the company. Early efforts to identify a scalable, low cost supply source led to a focus in the Altares and Kobes Montney regions in northeast B.C. The Montney is a world class resource and Altares is among the highest quality areas. The region possesses a unique combination of thickness and over-pressure, which contributes to highly efficient stacked resource development and strong well deliverability. Pacific Canbriam’s Montney resource also possesses a high liquids content and overall rock quality that translates into a highly competitive supply cost.
We believe that teamwork is the foundation of our success. We have established a culture where problem solving skills and critical thinking are highly valued. Individual technical disciplines collaborate to achieve common objectives and continuously improve results. PCE’s strategy and its culture are centred on this commitment. PCE is committed to protecting people and the environment through responsible natural resource development. We are proud to engage in industry-leading sustainability practices and promote continuous improvement throughout all areas of environment, social and governance (ESG) topics.
The next iteration of our integrated approach relates to the planned export of our natural gas to markets in growing economies overseas. To achieve this aim, PCE will supply B.C.’s proposed Woodfibre LNG project, which will liquefy the natural gas and load it into vessels. The natural gas will be shipped to help supply a growing demand for cleaner sources of energy in Asia.
