"Last June at our Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders, we put into motion mandates to address our balance sheet and raise capital in support of drilling high potential targets delineated by the interpretation of sophisticated 3D and 2D seismic data at our Woodrush project in N.E.B.C. Today, with this final investment, I am very pleased to report that we have achieved these objectives and are moving forward as a much stronger company with significant growth prospects. Our team is committed to maximizing both netbacks and IRR, leveraging our C$12 million of in-place infrastructure. With the 2017 financing behind us, we now turn to the exploration phase with our sites clearly focused on building significant, sustainable volumes of light oil production at the lowest cost available in B.C.," states Robert L. Hodgkinson, Chairman & CEO.
