Notice of Application
Application 1911963
Ikkuma Resources Corp.
Stolberg Field

The Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) has received application 1911963.

Description of the Application
Ikkuma Resources Corp. (Ikkuma) has applied under section 80 of the Oil and Gas Conservation Act for a pooling order prescribing that all tracts within the drilling spacing unit that covers Section 3, Township 42, Range 15, West of the 5th Meridian, be operated as a unit to produce gas from the Mannville Formation through a well to be drilled in Legal Subdivision 7-03-042-15W5M.

Ikkuma has requested, among other things, that costs and revenues under the pooling order be allocated on a tract-area basis and that it be named operator of the well. Specifically, Ikkuma has asked that the actual costs and revenues of the well within the drilling spacing unit be split among all tract owners based on the per cent of mineral interests allocated. Ikkuma has asked that a 200 per cent penalty, allowed under section 80(5) of the OGCA, be applied to a tract owner’s share of the actual costs of drilling and completing the well in the formation if the tract owner does not pay within 30 days of whichever of the following occurs last:

  • the pooling order being issued
  • the tract owner being notified in writing of its share of the actual costs
  • the well beginning production
