Seven Generations and MEG Energy cut capital spending plans for 2020
The announcement comes in the wake of the steep plunge in oil prices
CALGARY – In the wake of the sharp plunge in oil prices, two of Canada’s big oilpatch players have announced that they will be cutting their capital spending plans.
Seven Generations Energy Ltd. is lowering its 2020 capital investment budget by $200 million or 18% to $900 million.
The reduction reflects a temporary deferral of planned activity that will allow it to high-grade drilling locations and improve efficiencies.
Seven Generations’s production for 2020 is expected to average between 185,000 and 190,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, down from earlier guidance for between 200,000 and 205,000.
Meanwhile, MEG Energy Corp. is cutting its 2020 capital spending plan to $200M from the $250M in announced in Nov. 2019.
MEG also revised its full year 2020 production guidance range to between 93,000 and 95,000 barrels per day compared with its earlier guidance for between 94,000 and 97,000 barrels per day.
