Grizzly's independent engineering firm, GLJ Petroleum Consultants, estimated the Thickwood Thermal Project will ultimately recover approximately 107 million barrels of bitumen in their report dated December 31, 2011. With the submission of this application, Grizzly expects that a significant portion of the contingent resource assigned to the Thickwood property will be reclassified as probable reserves by GLJ Petroleum Consultants.
The Thickwood Thermal Project area is located approximately 58 kilometers northwest of Fort McMurray and near an established SAGD oil sands development at Southern Pacific McKay. Grizzly discovered the Thickwood Thermal Project area during the 2006 – 2007 winter drilling season and has subsequently drilled a total of 59 core holes and shot 3-D seismic on the acreage.
