About Laricina Energy Ltd.

Laricina is a non-public, Calgary based, responsible energy company that will contribute supply to the growing demand for crude oil through in situ oil sands development.

Laricina’s goal is to create value by developing Canada’s oil sands using innovative in situ technologies. The Company has a diverse portfolio of oil sands assets at varied stages of development, and experienced people with the requisite technical expertise. Laricina has identified five core areas with commercial production potential in excess of 600,000 gross barrels of bitumen per day from a large concentrated resource base with 387 million barrels of probable reserves and 4.6 billion barrels of contingent plus prospective resources (best estimate) as determined by Laricina’s independent reservoir engineers. These assets include oil sands resources in the familiar McMurray Formation, and the developing Grand Rapids, and Grosmont and Winterburn carbonate plays, all of which offer significant production potential.
