In This Section


Strategic’s primary business is upstream oil and gas exploitation and development. With its main areas of focus being Maxhamish in northeastern British Columbia and Steen River in  northwestern Alberta.  Taber and Conrad areas of southern Alberta provide stable production with potential upside from chemical flooding.


The Steen River area is located in northwestern Alberta.  Strategic has over 140 sections of undeveloped land, with multi-zone potential in the Keg River Sulphur Point, Muskeg Dolomite, and the Glove Point.  Current production capability is 1,000 boepd, primarily from the Keg River Zone.  The Steen River plan can handle 2,000 bopd of oil and 35 mmcfd of natural gas.

Taber and Conrad properties are oil producing properties located in southern Alberta. This is a low risk development area that provides annualized cash flow of greater than $1.5 million. Future development may include drilling waterflood and or enhanced oil recovery projects.

Harmattan and Ferrier areas are legacy, non-operated properties that continue to contribute to cash-flow. Strategic and their partners own multi-zone rights in this area (including the Cardium). Future opportunities may involve horizontal drilling into the Cardium.
