Ovintiv is one of North America’s oldest oil and natural gas producers. Their roots go back to the late 1800s when workers for the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) drilling a water well discovered natural gas. Ovintiv opted to make use of this newly discovered resource. In 1884, CPR drilled the first producing gas well in Alberta, Canada, to supply railway buildings with natural gas. That well was in use for about 50 years. Innovation has been the driving force behind Ovintiv’s evolution.
For decades, Ovintiv has been at the forefront of oil and natural gas exploration and development. Ovintiv was among the first in the oil and natural gas industry to use slant drilling techniques on a large scale to drive performance. Since the early 2000s, Ovintiv has focused on North American “resource plays,” a term it coined for unconventional resources locked deep in tight sands and shales. In 2007, Ovintiv’s culture of knowledge sharing led to the transfer of horizontal drilling techniques, first employed in the Barnett Shale of Texas, to Canada’s Montney formation, where it was successfully refined and returned to Texas.
