DELP holds an approximate 100% W.I. in 324,000 acres offshore Lake Erie from which only dry natural gas is produced. No oil or condensate is produced from offshore wells. The location of DELP’s natural gas assets provides marketing access to the Dawn natural gas storage hub and the large consuming market in the Greater Toronto Area.


Lake Erie natural gas is produced from Silurian age sandstone and carbonates at a maximum geological depth of 550 meters. The main producing horizons are the Grimsby, Whirlpool and Guelph formations. Going forward DELP will evaluate existing wells for recompletions and will identify new prospects for future drilling.
