Inuvaialuit Petroleum Corp. Announces Positive Test Results at Ikhil, N.W.T.

The Inuvaialuit Petroleum Corp. (IPC) announced the results of its recent production test of the IPC Ikhil K-35 well located 30 miles northwest of the town of Inuvik, N.W.T. Originally drilled in 1986, the well was re-entered and tested by IPC in March of this year in order to evaluate the feasibility of supplying Inuvik with natural gas.

The well test indicated a 6 metre thick sand with very high permeability of 1.7 darcies extending over an area of 322 hectares. Reserves in place are estimated at 15 billion cubic feet (bcf) and the stabilized well head deliverability is estimated to be 22.7 million cubic feet per day (mmcfd). This rate is approximately 10 times the estimated average daily energy consumption rate for lnuvik and more than double the estimated peak daily rate. At the average consumption rate the reserves in place would provide almost 18 years of supply. The test also confirmed the absence of formation water and natural gas liquids. This will allow the gas to be chilled and transported to lnuvik through a subsurface pipeline.

Negotiation of a gas purchase contract with the North West Territories Power Corporation as well as negotiation of a franchise agreement with the town of lnuvik will take place over the next few months prior to commitments being made for equipment and services for next winter's seismic and drilling programs.

Calgary based AltaGas Services Inc. has signed a letter of intent to participate in the construction, ownership and operation of the gas processing facilities and the pipeline.

The successful completion of this project will provide significant economic benefits for the residents of Inuvik through lower energy costs and direct employment and business opportunities. All fuel used in lnuvik is presently imported from southern Canada despite the presence of vast reserves of oil and natural gas in the Beaufort - MacKenzie Delta region. The project will also provide increased security of energy supply and reduced environmental degradation.
