加拿大-落叶松Canada - Tamarack
The Athabasca region of the Western Canadian Sedimentary Basin is home to Ivanhoe Energy's Tamarack Project and represents a significant and strategic growth area for the company.
In mid-2008, Ivanhoe Energy closed its first transaction in Western Canada, acquiring Leases 10 and 6 from Talisman Energy Canada. Lease 10, renamed the Tamarack Project, is a 6,880-acre contiguous block located approximately 10 miles (16 kilometres) northeast of Fort McMurray. Ivanhoe Energy holds a 100 percent working interest in the Project, subject only to a 20% back-in right held by Talisman Energy, which expired in mid-2011.
厄尔瓜多Ecuador - Block 20
The company's activities in Latin America are carried out under our wholly-owned subsidiary Ivanhoe Energy Latin America Inc. Ivanhoe Energy Ecuador Inc., a Canadian company, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ivanhoe Energy Latin America Inc. and is responsible for the company's activities in Ecuador.
In Ecuador, Ivanhoe Energy is undertaking the appraisal and development of Block 20, named the Pungarayacu Project.
l Block 20 is an area of approximately 426-square-miles (1,103.34-square-kilometres) located 125 miles (201.17 kilometers) southeast of Quito.
l Block 20 contains the 250-square-mile (647.5-square-kilometre) Pungarayacu oil field.
l Pungarayacu was discovered and partially delineated approximately 30 years ago. The quality of the oil was not fully determined at that time.
Petroproduccion, Ecuador's state oil company, drilled 26 wells (core holes) in the Pungarayacu field during the 1980s. The field has been studied and evaluated by Petroproduccion, ARCO and other major oil companies. These third-party studies estimated that the 250-square-mile (647.5-square-kilometre) Pungarayacu field contains between 4.5 billion barrels (Petroecuador-ARCO) and 7.0 billion barrels (Petroecuador) of oil-in-place.
蒙古Mongolia - Nyalga
In July 2012 Ivanhoe Energy announced that independent laboratories analyzed both the log results and cutting samples from the second well (N16-2E-B). Results indicated that there is a high probability that movable oil is limited from this well. The Company has, for the time being, suspended plans to complete the second well, given these results and our other priorities for the use of existing resources.
Currently there is a team of third-party experts reconciling the existing seismic, the data from both wells drilled in 2011 and reinterpreting the regional geology and play types. The well results will be accommodated within a new, revised geological model for the area. It is likely that there will be a need to acquire additional seismic prior to any further drilling. Additional seismic will be shot during 2013, with the potential to test the existing cased well, subject to availability of equipment.
An asset divestiture to an advantaged owner is being considered.
