Shale Oil and Gas Locations
The need for oil and gas prompted a drive in shale technological advancements that have improved safety and production efficiencies, particularly in shale plays. In turn, shales provide a reliable source of energy. Our shale oil and gas projects in North America include Canadian assets in the Duvernay and Montney oil plays in Alberta along with the Montney gas play in British Columbia. In the United States, we are active in the Delaware Basin portion of the Permian Basin. Outside of North America, we are also active in Argentina’s Neuquén Basin.
Our Americas Locations
Shell’s Canada’s Groundbirch asset produces dry – primarily sweet – gas from the Montney formation in northeast British Columbia (BC). Groundbirch offers significant long-term integration value with LNG Canada.
Shell Canada is producing light tight oil (LTO) from the Duvernay and Montney shale formations in northwestern Alberta. We have a premier position in the Duvernay liquids play.
On October 16, 2019, Shell Canada Energy announced completion of the previously publicized agreement that will see Pieridae Energy Limited to purchase its Foothills sour gas assets.
