About Questerre Energy Corp.
Questerre Energy Corporation (Questerre or the company) is a Calgary-based independent resource company actively engaged in the exploration for and development, production and acquisition of natural gas projects in Canada. The Companys current projects are a gas field redevelopment project in British Columbia complemented by an attractive exploration play in Quebec.
Beaver River Field, British Columbia
The Company's principal asset is a 100% working interest in the Beaver River field (66.66% working interest after payout), a 1.5 Tcf natural gas field located in northeast British Columbia. Questerre is focused on the redevelopment of the Beaver River Field, a 1.4 Tcf OGIP discovered natural gas field located northwest of Fort Nelson, British Columbia.
The Beaver River Field is a discovered gas field with an estimated 1.4 Tcf of original gas in place. Ultimate recoverable gas for this field is estimated to range between 511 Bcf and 730 Bcf. The field is located 100 miles northwest of Fort Nelson on the border of British Columbia and the Yukon.
In October 2003, Questerre spudded the new A-5 well at the Beaver River Field. Utilizing the existing A-5 wellbore, the new well is being directionally drilled to the crest of the strucuture. The Company is currently completing the drilling of the horizontal leg and anticipates the well will be completed, tested and tied-in by the beginning of March 2004.
St. Lawrence Lowlands
The Company holds 287,915 hectares of exploration acreage in the St. Lawrence Lowlands, located between Montreal and Quebec City south of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec. The St. Lawrence lowlands offer the potential to discover a new sub-basin on-shore North America.
Questerre entered into a farm-in agreement with Gastem Inc., a natural gas exploration company based on Montreal (TSX-V: GMR) to farm-in on Questerre's interests in the St. Lawrence Lowlands. Under the farm-in agreement, Gastem is required to pay 75% of the costs of a well to earn a 50% interest in 1,000 hectares of land surrounding the location of the well. In addition, for a period of six months after the testing of the initial well and any additional wells, Gastem will have an exclusive rolling option to drill further wells on the lands contained within the boundaries of the licenses on the same terms. Drilling l is expected to commence in early 2004.
In December 2003, Questerre announced that its partner, Gastem Inc., has secured financing to drill the Sainte Sophie #1 well on Questerre's Becancour prospect.
Lease construction commenced in December and the Sainte Sophie #1 well will be spudded in April 2004, subject to rig release. The rig is currently drilling gas injection wells at the St. Flavien Field, approximately 100 km northeast of the Becancour prospect. The St. Flavien Field is a hydrothermal dolomite (HTD) natural gas reservoir that produced 5.7 Bcf and currently serves as a gas storage facility. The Andrews Hz#1 well, completed in the upper Black River Formation, flowed on test at rates in excess of 18 mmcf/d, limited by surface equipment.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
