Company Overview

An Australian energy company with a focus on low-risk oil and gas development projects in North America.

Rhino Energy is currently in a joint venture with TSX:V listed Canadian oil and gas exploration company PetroFrontier Corp for the development of projects in the Cold Lake and Wabasca regions of Alberta, CA.

Cold Lake

The Cold Lake Interests include highly contiguous lease interests of approximately 16 sections in the Cold Lake area of northeastern Alberta. Production from these lands in the first quarter of 2016 reached approximately 340 barrels of oil per day, with current volumes at over 600 barrels of oil per day.

There are existing wells that can be completed or worked over in the near term to increase the current productive capacity with very low capital expenditures. Furthermore, management believes that, on the existing land base, there are over 200 additional potential drilling locations holding multi-zone potential for oil in the Mannville sequence (Colony, Sparky, Rex, Lloyd and Cummings zones).

The Company is in the early stages of its development of these Cold Lake Interests.



In early 2018, the PetroFrontier entered into a development agreement with Bigstone Oil & Gas Ltd., the wholly-owned energy company of the Bigstone Cree Nation. The agreement provides for the development of an initial 3,040 acres of oil and gas rights from the surface to the base of the Mannville in the Wabasca area of north-central Alberta (under lease to Bigstone Oil).

PetroFrontier considers this opportunity to be analogous to the conventional cold-flow heavy oil play being developed in the nearby Brintnell field. The prolific Brintnell field has produced over 420 million barrels of oil and is currently producing approximately 65,000 barrels of oil per day. This new core area for the PetroFrontier is within an area tightly held predominately by large energy companies.

Rhino Energy and PetroFrontier have completed formal documentation and further funding advance for development at Cold Lake and Wabasca.


  • Current production is ~600 bopd
  • 10 producing wells
  • Low-Risk, Low-Cost development potential
  • Material Alberta Heavy Oil Project
  • Over 1/2 billion Bbl OIP
  • Strong First Nations Relationship
