Cenovus Suffield Historical Oil Production


We are very excited to enter into this transformational acquisition of high-quality operated assets only five months after the launch of IPC. The Suffield and Alderson assets have been operated safely and efficiently by Cenovus and we are pleased to have reached this agreement to acquire these conventional producing assets as Cenovus focuses on its oil sands and Deep Basin assets. This acquisition fits perfectly with IPC’s strategy of leveraging our existing producing asset base as a platform for value accretive acquisitions of long-life, low-decline producing assets in stable jurisdictions with upside development potential.
