According to the Press Release, “Penn West Energy Trust (“Penn West”) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) with a wholly-owned subsidiary of the China Investment Corporation (“CIC”) to form a joint venture (the “Joint Venture”) that will develop Penn West’s bitumen assets located in the Peace River area of northern Alberta (the “Assets”). CIC has also agreed to purchase trust units (“Units”) of Penn West on a private placement basis (the “Financing”). Strategic Rationale Penn West is committed to an exploration and production strategy which will fully assess and realize the potential of its extensive resource play portfolio.

The Joint Venture is an important element of our strategy as it provides for the development of the Assets from the current resource appraisal phase through to commercial scale development and production. The cash proceeds from the Joint Venture and the Financing provide Penn West with additional financial flexibility to strategically advance the development of its significant ownership of light-oil resources.

Penn West and CIC believe the Assets to be a ‘world-class resource’ and as such view the production and reserves potential of this project to be substantial. CIC’s financial commitment, combined with Penn West’s operational resources, will enable the Joint Venture to complete the resource appraisal of the area and accelerate development.”
