Top 10 Oil and Gas Companies Drilling Deeper Wells

The following information shows the top 10 oil and gas companies in Western Canada that are drilling deeper wells year over year.

A couple of caveats on this information, first, some companies have made acquisitions which changes their asset mix and secondly we only choose companies that are drilling over 5 wells per year.

The average amounts of wells that each company has drilled in the last 12 months are 51 wells compared to 111 wells per company for the prior 12 month period. The average depth for these 10 companies is 3724 meters for the last 12 months versus 2296 meter for the prior 12 months.

Here are the companies and their information:
