​Black Diamond opens new workforce lodge in heart of the Montney play

With the opening of the new 252-person facility, Black Diamond says it now has over 2,500 rooms operating in the Montney and Duvernay plays in northwest Alberta and northeast BC.

The property is being operated through Black Diamond Cygnus, a partnership between the company and the West Moberly First Nations, on whose traditional land the facility is located.

Growing interest in Canada’s liquids-rich natural gas resources, primarily focused in the Montney play, was a key factor that led the Petroleum Services Association of Canada to increase its 2018 drilling forecast to 7,900 wells, up from 7,550 wells expected in 2017.
