Whitebark Energy Ltd (ASX:WBE) has received an update on its reserve position for its Wizard Lake Oil Pool in Canada as at 31 December 2018.

Net reserves for the Wizard Lake Oil Pool, incorporating the Rex Discovery well, have been assessed as 1P (proved) reserves of 132,000 barrels, and 2P (proved plus probable) reserves of 225,000 barrels.

Most notably, this update from the 30 June 2018 reserve position delivered a 70% increase to Whitebark’s reported 2P oil reserves, despite only a short production test period.

Further revisions will be undertaken once the well has been placed on permanent production which is anticipated to occur in April 2019 once all regulatory approvals are received and facilities and pipelines are completed.

Another 12 possible well locations
