2018 Western Canada leasing: a tale of the times

Report summary

Western Canada leasing spend and acres acquired in 2018 were below 2017 amounts but higher than in 2015 and 2016. Alberta saw a return of interest to the Northern Region, in particular for Montney lands in the liquids-rich windows of the play. British Columbia was down heavily year-on-year but featured one stand out bid. Saskatchewan and the oil sands also saw lacklustre leasing results in 2018. We identify regional trends, top bids and contemplate if 2019 leasing interest could rebound.

Table of contents

  • Alberta collects Cdn$405 million; Montney play attracts the top bids
  • One high value block in British Columbia steals the show
  • Saskatchewan totals underwhelm but acreage values return to normal levels
