Seven Generations Announces Hydraulic Fracturing Deal with Schlumberger Canada

CALGARY, Oct. 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Seven Generations Energy Ltd. ("7G" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has reached agreement with Schlumberger Canada ("Schlumberger") whereby Schlumberger will provide continuous service of one hydraulic fracture stimulation spread (the "Spread") with sufficient staffing to supply 24-hour operations to 7G. "Spread" is the industry term used to describe all of the equipment required to blend and pump the slurry used to hydraulically fracture deep gas-bearing resource rock.  The Spread will be deployed at 7G's Kakwa River Project near Grande Prairie, Alberta. The Company estimates that this Spread will be able to complete the majority of the new horizontal Montney wells, now awaiting completion as well as those to be drilled during the one year contract period. 

"Schlumberger's strong technical support and willingness to help us design better completions makes them an excellent technology partner for this engagement," said Marty Proctor, President and Chief Operating Officer. "Furthermore, the efficiencies gained from a continuous engagement of a frac spread enables more effective coordination of water, nitrogen and sand supply, allows for efficiencies with 7G's other services and provides a structured schedule for facilities and ultimately, production.  Over time, we expect that both the Schlumberger and 7G technical and operating teams will identify ways to further optimize completion costs while improving our treatment procedures and well performance."
