Crescent Point Energy Corp. ("Crescent Point" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has successfully closed its previously announced strategic and accretive acquisition of oil and liquids-rich Montney assets in Alberta for $1.7B in cash (the “Transaction” or “Acquisition”).
This Acquisition aligns with Crescent Point’s long-term strategy and enhances the Company’s portfolio by adding 600 high-return Montney locations, further extending its premium drilling inventory to 15 years. This Transaction was also immediately accretive to Crescent Point’s adjusted funds flow and excess cash flow per share by 20 percent, resulting in a higher return of capital profile for shareholders.
Crescent Point believes these Montney assets have significant upside through a combination of potential reserves growth due to the number of unbooked locations, the opportunity to develop an additional Montney bench based on the significant resource in place and the potential for enhanced efficiencies given the similarities and proximity to its existing Kaybob Duvernay play.
Update On The Impact Of The Alberta Wildfires
As previously announced on May 8, 2023, Crescent Point temporarily shut-in approximately 45,000 boe/d in the Kaybob Duvernay in response to the recent Alberta wildfires. The Company has since restored approximately 75 percent of the production with no damage reported to its assets and plans to fully restore the remaining production once it is safe to do so. Crescent Point will continue to provide updates on its production impacted by the wildfires when appropriate
The Company’s production and assets associated with the Montney Acquisition were not impacted by the wildfires.
