Case Study: Farrell Creek Water Pipeline Consultation Process• A key component of our long-term water sourcing strategy in our Farrell Creek Operations (Montney Shale Play) of BC is the water pipeline from Williston Reservoir to our Farrell Creek operations• The water pipeline allows Talisman to reliably and sustainably source water without utilizing shallow water wells and shallower surface sources. This in turn significantly reduces water truck traffic through Hudson’s Hope• Talisman received a permanent water license for Williston Reservoir in July 2011 and completed the construction of a permanent water intake structure and pipeline later that year• Talisman received all necessary approvals from the appropriate regulating bodies, including the BC Oil and Gas Commission (OGC) and the BC Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Recourse Operations• Project received letters of support from the District of Hudson’s Hope and a First Nations Community.
