Message to Shareholders

  • As ESG initiatives continue, PEI has abandoned 16 wells amounting to $599,812 in decommissioning liability (ARO) reduction in Q3 2022; 41 wells amounting to $986,209 in ARO reduction for YTD 2022. PEI’s commitment to the environment remains a major focus
  • PEI’s management and advisors have spent considerable time interpreting the drilling and completion results of the two re-entry horizontal pilot wells resulting in a substantial Q4 development plan. This bodes well for PEI meeting the target 2022 exit production rate
