The Pulse Team is excited to be reactivating wells and growing cash flow from this 100% owned oil and gas asset, in preparation for the next step, funding and carrying out Pulse’s Enhanced Oil Recovery (“EOR”) program.



Bigoray: Implementing Proven Technology



50+ isolated reservoirs in Pembina / Bigoray trend, average 1-2km across, 100m thick, 38ºAPI(1)
Schlumberger’s geotechnical modelling concludes Pulse’s Nisku D and E pools are technically analogous to surrounding offset pools:
  • DPIIP of 33,519 mbbl estimated by Schlumberger(2)
  • 28% recovery factor (9.4 million bbls of light and medium oil) produced to date on water flood alone, consistent with waterflood recovery of analogous area pools
  • 82% recovery factor (18 million additional bbls of contingent resources defined as light and medium oil)(1) (2): average of 7 pools within 15-mile radius of Pulse’s two pools after miscible floods
  • With the support of Pulse’s independent third party analysis and modelling results, previously news released, Pulse feels that with adequate funding, we can increase production by large multiples of Pulse’s current production through a low-risk and proven EOR program.

Enhanced Oil Recovery: Successful Technique


  • EOR involves the process of increasing the amount of recoverable oil from a reservoir by injecting a substance into an existing oil pool to swell the oil and reduce its viscosity, allowing “stuck oil” to flow more easily towards the producing wells
  • At Bigoray, Pulse will inject an NGL product into the top of the reservoir. Once a 10m bank of NGLs has been created, injection will switch to natural gas to push the NGL bank down through the reservoir. Oil will be continually produced from the bottom of the reservoir throughout the process

Analogous pools have an average productive life of ~40 years and an average recovery factor of 82% after implementation of solvent flood EOR projects(3)
