Much of the industry interest in Northeastern BC is being fuelled, by the shale gas play, in the remote Horn River basin, north of Fort Nelson.

Yesterday EnCana, one of the key exploration players in the region, put some numbers behind the reserve speculation.

The country’s largest gas producer says, it could eventually produce one billion cubic feet of gas per day.

That’s enough to heat five million Canadian homes for a year and, the equivalent of about 170 thousand barrels of oil…bigger than most oil sands mines.

However, infrastructure barely exists in the region and, vehicular access is often restricted to a short winter period, when the muskeg is frozen.

Thus, there is no question that will play a major role, in the development of the area.
