August 22, 2017 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Canada Energy Partners Inc.’s (TSX-V: CE) (the "Company") has successfully surface tested its prototype jetcav mining tool (the “JetCav tool”). The JetCav tool effectively granulated 5 out of 6 the kimberlite targets from a Canadian diamond mine. The kimberlite targets are one of the hardest of the minerals prospective to the JetCav tool. The Company is pleased with the results and intends to apply the tool to an actual mineral deposit as soon as possible.
An explanatory video showing the actual test results can be viewed on the Company’s website at www.canadaenergypartners.com.
The Company received a decision from the Oil & Gas Appeal Tribunal (“OGAT”) on August 21, 2017 dismissing the Company’s appeal. The Oil & Gas Commission (“OGC”) is still deliberating, after the previously concluded Technical Review, whether to cancel the Company’s water disposal well permit or conversely to withdraw the Suspension Order. If the OGC withdrew the Suspension Order, the Company would be allowed to resume water disposal operations. The OGAT stated in their decision that should the OGC cancel the Company’s water disposal well permit that would be an appealable decision.
The OGAT decision and all of the prior Company’s submissions to the Tribunal can be viewed on our website at: www.canadaenergypartners.com.
