Given the current weak crude oil commodity price environment, Briko has proactively responded to this very volatile period. The Corporation currently has approximately 70 bbl/d of crude oil production shut in until prices recover. Due to these shut in decisions, Briko’s estimated production for the second quarter of 2020 is in the range of 525 – 575 boe/d and 2020 estimated production is in the range of 500 – 600 boe/d. Briko continues to establish a prudent capital expenditure program focussed on maintenance and optimization initiatives that is anticipated to be funded by adjusted funds flow for 2020.
