Crew Energy Inc. Provides Update on Timing of 2018 Capital Budget

Dec 19, 2017

CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crew Energy Inc. (TSX:CR) (“Crew” or the “Company”) today announces that the Company will issue its 2018 capital budget and full year guidance early in 2018. 

With the continued volatility in spot and future natural gas prices, the Company believes it is prudent to defer finalization of the 2018 budget while continuing to monitor commodity prices for signs of stability.  Crew originally anticipated finalizing and issuing the budget in mid-December 2017, as referenced in our November 2, 2017 press release.  Our objectives for 2018 are to proactively manage the capital program as it relates to maintaining balance sheet strength and flexibility while preserving the significant optionality of Crew’s asset base.
