Tamarack Valley Energy Approves 2022 Capital Budget

Tamarack Valley Energy (TSE:TVE), an oil and gas exploration and production company, announced Thursday that the board of directors has approved a capital budget for 2022, pro forma the acquisition of Crestwynd Exploration Ltd.

CEO Commentary  

Tamarack president and CEO Brian Schmidt said, “We are excited to roll out a strong 2022 plan with a continued focus of building on and delivering sustainable free funds flow. Our program is designed to provide an optimal balance of investment across our asset base with the growth driven by the Clearwater, free funds flow maximization in the Charlie Lake, and decline mitigation through the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) waterfloods. The updated five-year plan, inclusive of the Acquisition, generates robust free funds flow of greater than $1.1 billion dollars at US$55/bbl WTI and greater than $2.1 billion dollars at US$70/bbl WTI.”
