In addition, Tidewater holds various working interests in approximately 18,968 gross acres (13,740 net) of land in Northeast BC including 14,641 gross acres (12,725 net) of Montney rights.
The Properties offer access to an extensive facility network with current processing capacity of approximately 45 MMcf/d.

NOTE REGARDING A SAYER PROCESS
On each and every offering brochure generated by Sayer, you will note the sentence “Sayer Energy Advisors does not conduct a “second-round” bidding process; the intention is to attempt to conclude a sale of the Property with the party submitting the most acceptable proposal at the conclusion of the process.” What this means is that Sayer will not go back to multiple parties at the same time after bids are received, asking them all for a second bid. We determine which party submitted the most acceptable proposal and then we attempt to negotiate acceptable terms with that party in a “one-off” situation.
If the process involves a cash sale of a property or company and the party which submitted the most acceptable proposal has met our client’s threshold value, that offer will be accepted. If this proposal does not meet our client’s threshold value, then we will advise that party that the offer is not quite what our client was expecting, and we will ask them to increase the offer. If that offer is not acceptable to our client, we will then move down to the party which submitted the next most acceptable proposal and we will then work with that party to attempt to meet our client’s threshold value.
In the extremely rare circumstance where two or more parties submit virtually identical proposals, we will contact all parties, we will advise them of this situation and we will ask them to submit a revised proposal. Once these are received, we will work with the party which has submitted the most acceptable proposal.
Parties wishing to receive access to the confidential information with detailed technical information relating to this opportunity should execute the Confidentiality Agreement and return one copy to Sayer Energy Advisors by courier, email (email@example.com) or fax (403.266.4467).
