The primary focus of Northern Spirit's development drilling program in 2013 and 2014 has been at Provost in East Central Alberta, which includes the Klein and Cadogan areas. The Company owns 23,300 gross or 16,700 net acres (26 sections) in the area of which 7,600 net acres is undeveloped (12 sections).

In 2013 Northern Spirit drilled 4 gross (2.2 net) successful horizontal wells at Klein. During the first half of 2014 the Company drilled 4 gross (3.5 net) horizontal wells and drilled 1 gross (0.9 net) vertical well in the Klein area. Further, in June 2014 the Company recompleted 1 gross (1 net) vertical well at Cadogan. All of the 2014 newly drilled wells targeted Sparky medium gravity oil and all were drilled and cased to full planned depth.

At Klein South, a horizontal well (WI 55%) was drilled in March 2014. The well was completed after spring break up and is currently being equipped for production. The well is estimated to be on production in August 2014. A vertical well (WI 86%) was drilled in Klein South in order to further delineate a Sparky target. This vertical well is currently being completed and tested.

At Klein North, 3 horizontal wells (WI 100%) were drilled in June 2014 from a common surface pad. Completion activity is currently underway and with success all 3 wells are estimated to be tied in and on production in August 2014.
