The claim relates to a purchase and sale agreement between Gear and an arm’s length third party pursuant to which Gear agreed to transfer selected non-core Alberta heavy oil assets to that third party. Non-core assets consist of 450 wellbores, 84 facilities and 19 pipelines with total current production of approximately 400 boe/d.

Transfers are currently classified as “Pending” with approximately 60-90 days required for review by the AER.
