Obsidian Energy Ltd, a Calgary-based oil and gas production company, has unveiled its full operational report for the year 2017 as well as updates from the company’s four well pad located in Willesden Green. While commenting on the report, Obsidian Energy’s president & CEO David French confirmed that 2017 was a good year for Obsidian Energy. He added that the firm employed a series of strategies that have enabled it to close 2017 on high-momentum.


David projected that 2018 will be a great year for his firm. According to the report, Obsidian Energy’s full-year production was above the set guidance range. The company has attributed this to solid execution of its second half program. The report further indicates that the four-well pad located in Willesden Green has shown promising results. Production in the 4th quarter 2017 is reported to be at 31,400boe/d. Despite the continued cold weather in the area, the company’s average corporate production has knocked 32,000boe/d in 2018.
