Report summary

Lease spend in Western Canada was stagnant in 2014, with Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan attracting a combined Cdn$1.1 billion in bonuses. A total of 14,380 square kilometres (3.6 million acres) were acquired, almost a 50% drop from the previous year. Despite a drop in volume, spend per acre increased across all regions as operators concentrated on high potential areas in the Montney, Duvernay and Saskatchewan Bakken plays.
